I hope they do fix it, as they did Liberty Bridge, as both were damaged by the same thing. Art deserves respect.

"It was a sculpture, now it's a monument," Koenig said, noting how the relatively fragile metal globe had mostly survived the cataclysm. "It now has a different beauty, one I could never imagine. It has its own life – different from the one I gave to it."

Cool, look at earthcam or the other webcam from the official St Nicholas site: the Sphere is no longer hidden and fully approachable.

WTC Progress on Facebook:

Quote:
The sphere, which stood in the center of the Austin J. Tobin Plaza prior to 9/11 and was recovered from the rubble after the attacks, had been on display in Battery Park since March 2002. In early August 2017, the artwork was returned to the World Trade Center and was installed in the center of Liberty Park, where it has undergone cleaning since its arrival on the site.

The sphere will be formally dedicated at its permanent home at a later date.

I'm really happy The Sphere has finally returned to the WTC. Too bad Fritz Koenig isn't here to see his sculpture return home.

On a side note... does anyone know whats going on with the missing glass towards the top of 1WTC?

Still feels incredibly slow.

Lots of interesting steel going in at the VSC exit under the future PAC site. I think I can see the spiral ramp starting to take shape.

What's up with that huge stacked plate girder at the lower right? That thing must be 15-20 feet tall.

It looks like it might be the barrier wall separating the VSC from the Cortlandt Street (1) station, which is why the latter is taking so damned long to wrap up.

Just posted on facebook must be quite recent? Nice shot either way.

This seems so slow. I wish they would finish the exterior cladding at least. Projected completion isn't till late next year.
