Sorry, but there's no better feeling than being in Central Park, on the Hudson, or anywhere in NY for that matter and seeing the snow build up!
Haha I guess so, I've been in central park and is indeed magical, unfortunately I have seen the falling snow only once in my life and it wasn't in NY.

I am shocked that this seems so delayed yet we don't hear any news as to why. There must be a reason.

Very strange.

There's been some reporting. But very little. The plaza is open and that's what most people seemed to care about. This tower is still about two years away from being open anyway.

Isnt it strange, they use billions for the army but can`t get enough money to rebuild `Ground Zero` A place so important. What is exactly the problem with tower 1? I follow this building a few years but I get a little sick of all the delay`s.

They are now busy in the core reconfiguration hé? They go from a large core to a smaller core now they are in the top levels where only maintenance and ob-deck are.

Therefore it takes longer to see it rising... as the office floors were the only standard thing on the tower...

The army is far more important than skyscrapers

This is not property of the Federal Government, there is no reason why there should even be a budget comparison.

As for the delays, I'm sure they are doing exactly what they have to do, I doubt anybody just decided to go on vacation and interrupt the construction process. But the lack of information for the general public is annoying.

Funny, I find the WTC far more impressive. The majority of the ESB is rather drab in comparison. The only thing that saves it for me is the spire.

It looks like HK on steroids. I doubt it would improve the quality of life in NYC.
