Nice, thanks for sharing. But you can easily do without the overdone HDR effect

I dunno, we see most pictures without the HDR effect, so I think it brings variety.

That cheesy effect annoys me as well.

Workers Back on the Job at World Trade Center Site

Quote:
By Joseph De Avila

Concrete laborers who had refused to work at the World Trade Center for three days returned to their jobs Thursday morning after their union reached an agreement with contractors late Wednesday, according to people familiar with the matter.


The Cement League, a contractors’ association that represents management, and the Cement and Concrete Workers District Council, representing concrete workers, agreed late Wednesday night to extend a contract until Aug. 16. Talks will be ongoing until then.

Hundreds of cement workers began a work stoppage Monday after their contract ended. The job action affected work at One and Two World Trade Center, its downtown transit hub, the new Barclays Center, Madison Square Garden, Weill Cornell Medical Center and a residential development on 57th Street.

A labor arbitrator ordered some of those workers back to their jobs on Tuesday and Wednesday because their project labor agreements had no-strike provisions. But workers at One World Trade Center and its 800,000-square-foot transit hub had no such agreement and threatened to remain off the job until they reached a new contract.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey confirmed Thursday that the workers had returned to their jobs.

The main dispute is over contractors’ insistence that concrete workers accept 20% less in wages and benefits for residential and hotel construction relative to commercial construction. The union hasn’t budged on that demand so far.

Patrick Keane, a concrete laborer from New Windsor, N.Y., said he is afraid that $200, or 20 percent, is going to be plucked from his weekly wages. Keane, originally from Ireland, said he is hoping the negotiations result in enough money to match his living expenses.

“Allow us to live and allow us to live decently,” he said. “It’s another basic right — we’re not looking to break anybody.”

Really? I like it.

@325crr: Is that Photoshop? Which filter did you use?

on the closeups of the top of WTC1 tower you really see how small it is. The usable non-core space is tiny - sort of like the Chrysler building. This is exactly as I feared. By the time it gets to the top and is square again it will be absurdly small.

This is definitely not an imposing or impressive tower. Better than nothing but NYC still needs something bigger to truly dominate the skyline.
