Wow...just wow. People settle the **** down already. Why the hell is everyone on the ******* attack in the forums. It's like you's lay and wait till someone does or say's something you don't agree with and you jump and attack. Settle the **** down already. I was simply stating in a joking manner that the Freedom Tower is just taking a little long to get a kick start in it's construction . I'm sorry if I hurt anyones feelings or cause anyone to loose hours of sleep over a stupid comment comparison of construction projects...

If anyone is overreacting its you. You obviously realize people are sensitive about these things so perhaps you should tailor your comments accordingly, instead looking for an excuse to lay down your diatribe. Do I think people are too sensitive on this board? Sure. But its obvious you might be even more sensitive than everyone else. So sit back, take a couple of breaths, and think before your next post.

Now, if you get the Beekman Street tower and Calatrava's tower for South Street Seaport I'll be even more excited. Top work team!
Beekman St is now 8 Spruce St., and Calatrava's Towers a go but its delayed because there are no buyers. Go to the NYC development thread because I just listed alot of towers over 500ft. proposed and approved for NYC. Around 23. I compared them to HK, Sh, Chi, and Dubai, and its on top. NYC is rolling along.

^Don't use .png file formats for photos. It slows down pageloading because of poor compresssion.

The red thing is a mobile slewing crane for sure. It's a fairly decent sized one.

Those are subway stations and tunnels, they really are not buildings, more like structures.

It's small compared to the cranes they use to lift the steel once the building starts to rise. It's pretty big on its own.

What about the radio reports of poor air quality? Does anyone think this will slow down construction at all? I hope not.
