I like photos as much as anyone, but if the photos do not show an actual construction update, then I wonder if we are just awing over photos.

Sept 10
I am impressed and thankful that the crews have managed to spare this tree.


Early to work


This site catches the morning sun nicely - the park should be amazing.








Sept 11
After a long night working on an IBM SAN (DS4700) - I come out to see the IBM building, with Trump Tower looming up in back.

Harry C, good photos showing some construction going on.

As for the trees, I am grateful that there are an abundance of trees in Manhattan (otherwise, our world would be bleak).

I was working with an IBM DS4400 about a month ago - and like Harry it took me all damn night long. I Wish I could have experienced the same view after all that work!

It's construction like this that makes me wonder if it's too late to switch careers and become a construction worker.

I can't wait to see this completed. What a gorgeous building.

Love him or hate him, Donald Trump will soon have the Second tallest skyscraper in America (for the time being at least.) That's quite an accomplishment.

Yeh, I just wish he would build a super-tall for NYC (his home town).

Amazing shot, wrabbit!

If I may suggest, you could enter that shot into next week's photo poll contest (it really is outstanding, IMHO).
