Yeah, I am an optimist and I think the new 1wtc is going to represent so much when it's finished. It will offer those amazing panoramic views of the city and the memorial below. People are now really noticing it rising in the skyline. When it's topped out, and especially after the spire is put on, it's really going to amaze people I think. And just like tourists once came to the twin towers, they will now come to the new tower and also the memorial plaza. The new tower will probably make a lot of its money from the tourism. Many people, especially those who visited the towers before 9/11, like myself, want to visit and re-live the experience. You can bet the city will market the tower as a tourist attraction too since it will be the tallest in town. It will be on every brochure, tourist guide, etc. If they do put a restaurant up near the top one day, I would be fine with it being called Windows on the World again. Either way, 1wtc is going to be a major attraction in New York in the near future!

You do make great video updates, but why not posting your videos in YouTube tags, so I don't have to open a new YouTube tab every time?

Nine floors remain, plus a handful of levels in the communications ring and spire.

Core columns being hoisted up this morning. They look about 50 ft tall.

Core columns are being installed as we speak. They go up to the 93rd floor so around 1210 ft. Otie could give the exact height.
