Aren't we due for one of those graphics that shows WTC1's current status versus other buildings such as the ESB, CN Tower, etc?

I know it is a volunteer effort but I would really love to see an updated one.

Completely agree here. I really like Beekman but I think it would be even better if it didn't try so hard to be beautiful.

I personally think Beekman shows a distinct lack of trying to be beautiful, but each to their own- everyone else seems to like it.

I wonder how much the weight of this thing increases by each time they add floors...

wow. Carlos, you could actually see the blue netting of Tower 1 over the roof line of Tower 7. In 2 more floors from you view point you would be able to see ever single step of the contruction of 2nd half of the Tower. Thank you so much for you photos.

Looks really good, and starting to make an impact on the skyline, can't wait to see this in the flesh again, when I'm in NYC in June.
