Today's "Rise of Freedom" on Fox News looks at the iron workers at 1WTC, quite interesting: http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/rise-o...list_id=161320

I just checked them, they really are new. Both my new pics and other's new pics show the cladding to be slightly above 7WTC, which means they were all taken at the same time

Hm, very strange.
I don't understand why this trees are green and the people are wearing short trousers in that photo.
That's unusual for November, isn't it?

Yeah, that's weird. I just checked on flickr, their description says they're from the 24th November and the status of 1WTC is according to it. But this sunny and apparently hot weather look like straight outta summer or maximaly early fall. Maybe the New Yorkers on this forum could tell us what's the weather over there

Btw, I have pics

It's been 60 and sunny the past two days, which is very good timing for the holiday weekend.

If winter doesn't get tough, you shall probably see the last perimeter columns being installed above the roof slab.
