Damn, 1064 pages for one construction

Design looks really nice, don't know why some people say it's ugly. And they're doing a nice job allready, I can't wait to see the result!

Go New York!

I was down at the site a few times over the weekend. Words can't describe how enormous it all is, and I can't even fathom what it will be like to one day stand at the feet of four supertall skyscrapers.

Photos taken by me 4.15.11 on my iPhone.

I hadn't been to the WTC site in some time, owing to its perpetual crowdedness (PATH commuters + tourists = headache). I was awestruck by how absolutely massive it is! It will be quite a sight to behold when it's topped out.

You can see the Park Row Building in the distance here. It's hard to believe that, at 391 feet tall, it was once the world's tallest building.

A somewhat unusual angle from the W Side Hwy.

So it looks like the earthcam is back up. What happened to their megapixel cam? The picture is a lot smaller now.

Hey guys this is my first post!

Regarding the megapixel webcam, yes it's back up as of today (4/18/11) and if you go to the 9-11 memorial website they have a link for the same megapixel webcam image that is still full size.

Awesome pictures! Thanks for posting.

Note that the park row building was never the tallest building in the world. Not even close.

"At 391 feet (119 m), The Park Row Building was the tallest office building in the world from 1899 until 1908, when it was surpassed by the Singer Building"

Nice to see some scaffolding...

Some pics from wnyc.org




Windows preparing to be installed on the 31st floor of One World Trade Center.


Maria Pacillo serves about 500-600 lunches a day at the World Trade Center construction site. Recently, workers built an extension for her lunch trailer. She shares it with one other woman and a few cooks.
