Numbering is irrelevant. Just ask the Chinese We are talking about usable floors. But this is off-topic, I just presented my point and hopefully explained it well enough. As it was said, others may, or may not share my point of view.

Anyway, back to 1WTC.

Look, it always depends. Let's say that a normal floor of 1WTC is 13'4'' (= 4,06400m). 417 : ~ 4,064 = 102,6. So 1WTC is actually a skyscraper with 102 floors, well at least that's the way I see it. Same goes for ESB.

Great action shots of steel getting hauled up.

Guess you stood there and watched the action for a while. Lucky you!!

Yeah, I'm on the site usually twice a month, but actually that was the first time when I had an opportunity to watch some action!! Quite a nice experience!

For me the one of the steel beam being hauled up past the glass is an instant classic.

Carlos, do you know what hours they work on this project? Do they do more than 8 hours a day?

They do seem to have it in high gear - that is awesome. And yes, they probably do want it to be as far along by Sept 11 as possible.
