That second to last picture is amazing. It shows how close we are to topping out, but yet how far it still actually is

I'm in Newark right now, and hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to make my first picture update on the WTC.

They're putting some sort of panels up, but I'm not sure what they are. But, you can really get a sense of how much taller it is than the WFC now.

If you're talking about those metal panels, those are for holding materials hoisted up by the crane.

Please post as often as you like :-) And hopefully Carlos will return too :-) :-)
