Great pics Kanto! Wow, a little off topic, but just going through pics of the memorial, it just feels so good to see people roaming around the WTC plaza again...even though the buildings aren't done yet and its still contained for a few more years...just seeing life back at the Trade Center is awesome...anyway thats my little rant lol...so glad to see steel rising again, I have faith we'll top out in mid to late April...I've been hearing a lot of people complaining again though on the floor count...I guess some don't realize that the twins weren't exactly 110 floors of office space either...8 were set aside for mechanical correct? Oh well who cares we still get a gorgeous new 1WTC!

I guess the PA just doesn't care enough about it to send somebody to clean it up

Thanks for that... that's a big base weight alone to hang off the side of a building.

@Otie. Wonderful picture. NY's tallest three buildings

*edit. This was my 1000th post! I remember my first post on this forum was on this building's thread, and my 1000th was also on this thread... Sorry for getting nostalgic. Great picture though

This is a bit older (January 2011), but this is an interesting read from the concrete contractor at 1WTC.
