That's some liquid freedom pouring there, boys! Corny or not, I like the name, but 1WTC sould remain the "official" title.

Sorry, but Freedom Tower is what you will see on the post cards and t-shirts. It's the observation deck or restaurant at the top of the "Freedom Tower" people will reference, not 1 WTC. Although they are one and the same, Freedom Tower will be the more definitive name, of only because 1 WTC is too generic.

Here's a picture of this historic event:

That this beauty may rise
So in NYC you don't use a big thick mat of concrete and rebar ? Just put the whole thing smack on the bedrock ?

Yes - but everyone is so excited by the core walls - sorta like we get when the Mat is poured ( 8'-20' thick )

I'm so excited to see this really get going. Wow, the visible progress at 1WTC, groundbreaking for Museum Plaza Thursday, and I get paid Friday! Right now, this week is looking pretty good.

Just noticed at EarthCam from yesterday... Have they built a wall sealing off the sublevels of former WTC6? or is this part of Freedom Tower's core?
