Actually, the year 1787 was also an important year in American history.

1787 was the year the United States Constitution was adopted.

Take it from someone in Philadelphia!

Kanto I hope you're aware of the rumors about DCM going out of business. You seem like you haven't heard.

Wait, since when is the height suppose to be 1787? I thought it was always suppose to be 1776...

I love seeing the profile rising above Lower Manhattan from a distance......The rectangular more than the tapering.....Great to see work goes on even in variable weather where the entire construction industry closes down here for weeks ! ...and it's summer here !

I know about it. When the news came here I replied with

But still a construction stopping of 1WTC wasn't announced so far so I think we can still hope new steel will go up and the problems will be somehow solved by the PA
