No cars around the base and neither below it. Engineers had a tragic experience with parking near or below skyscrapers. That's why there's a Vehicle Security Center.

Unprecedented Safety and Security
The World Trade Center Vehicle Security Center and Tour Bus Parking Facility (VSC) will provide as part of the comprehensive WTC area police and security plan for screening of buses, trucks, and cars entering the WTC site and its facilities.

A line of rain/thunderstorms came near on Monday, with wind. Rain and wind last Thursday and Friday, and Monday a week ago there was snow on the ground, but not a lot.

Anything can cause a temporary slow down, a missed truck, a supplier behind on steel sequencing, a request from the guys on the lower levels to "let us catch up!" just kidding

That areal photo is beautiful (thanks for posting, Dino); meanwhile, quoting pictures is somehow disturbing to some people (I'm not considered one of them), also the thread gets bigger, but of reposted images.
Although pictures are for some people amazing and for others just pictures, there's no need to get double image in the same page.
I suggest that when you quote, delete the "[IMG]...[/IMG]" part.

A lot of 1000ft+ towers are proposed or under construction in midtown. At the moment there's really no reason to complain. Also 1500 seems a little bit to tall for me. 1200 should be enough.

example:

Reality and money dictate what gets built and where. This is the simple truth.

If a 2,900 foot tall tower is deemed profitable in midtown, it will be built. (Don't hold your breath.) (Don't bore me with FAA rules etc.either, money talks. If "The Donald" wanted it built, it would be built.)
