Holy carp! It reached 104°F (40°C) in NYC on Friday! (It was a relatively cool and refreshing 103°F here in Raleigh.) Still 90 at 10:51 PM! The heat index got to at least 113°F.

Hopefully the workers are staying well hydrated. I guess the cold of winter and the heat of summer don't really slow them down much. It's the rain, wind, snow, and possibly lightning that does.

Amazing how little the low-rise foreground buildings have changed over the last 40 years!

I don't post very often but I want to say Thank You Carlos for you wonderful updates! We appreciate what you do very much, as well as all the other contributors to this thread. This tower is really starting to soar! I must say at first I didn't care for the glass that much but now I love it, it looks great!

In that picture, the AIB and the Woolworth buildings look like twins.

I don't care what anyone says. The Financial District is absolutely incredible. I love walking along West Street in the evening.

The jersey view of NYC is awesome, it all sort of builds up to 1wtc. I almost get that effect in staten island

Then you'll love the new WTC when it's finished, cause Larry's buildings will build up to 1WTC too. Lower Manhattan will look like a mountain with the new WTC, slowly going higher and higher 'til reaching 1WTC, not like with the old WTC which was very dominating
