"sleeper" beam being constructed on top of caissons ( caissons put in several years ago ). The caisson top is visible at the bottom center of the photo.

This picture was taken by Vanhenrik on SSP, from the TV show Leverage. I love how there is a new major skyscraper being built and Hollywood has to get their hands all over it before the tower’s even finished. The Trump has now been featured, during construction, on the TV shows ER and Leverage, and in the movie The Dark Knight.

That's a beautiful tower! Classic American look too. Somehow looks better quality than some others going up in other parts of the world - might just be because it's sleek and glassy.

Spire Install

Hi all,
Spire looks fantastic. Ironworkers have got some guts--it was cold and windy.
Somehow this has echoes of the famous Iwo Jima picture...
