Hi,

according to http://blogs.discovery.com/rebuilding-ground-zero/ the city of new york is planning to build a new small 9/11 memorial with an original steal beam from the wtc. Does anyone know where it will be placed? Will it be at the wtc area (maybe next to the museum or waterfall pools) or somewhere else?

greets from germany

when each generation passes events that happen in our lives will become trivial like for exampled the titanic pearl harbor etc witch where all significant events in their time are all now reduced to just being history, so as the years go by their is going to be a flim with 1 wtc getting destroy it is just a matter of time .

I am starting to think we should all chip in and buy Carlos a high definition web cam with a really good zoom lense. This waiting for updated pictures while he is out doing other stuff is killing me.

New vertical steel could have gone up two hours ago and I don't know about it :-(

^Try the Discovery Channe's Webcams:
  1. Tower One from South West
  2. View from 7 World Trade Center
  3. View from West Side
  4. As Seen from Solar Camera

All of them are aviable in HD (Requires MS Silverlight)

Also we have aviable the PANYNJ webcam

All of the cameras have been showing the same image since June 8th. KPI TV has finally updated the picture from tower 7 about an hour ago but all the others are still stuck on June 8th. All webcams on Discovery are still June 8th.
