Power System Switched on at WTC

Power System Switched on at WTC
Workers switched on a massive power system at the site TuesdayTuesday, Mar 27, 2012 | Updated 2:21 PM EDT

"The slow but steady march to rebuild the World Trade Center in New York has reached another milestone.

Workers switched on a massive power system at the site Tuesday. It eventually will provide electricity to the center's signature skyscraper, a transit hub and the 9/11 memorial and museum.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says the system of electrical feeders will supply 100 megawatts to the site.

That's enough juice to power 64,000 typical New York City apartments.

The unfinished One World Trade Center is now one of the city's tallest structures.

If construction continues at its current pace, it will pass the Empire State Building sometime this spring."

Long ways to go still.


And what about the "dove's wings"? That transportation station, or what ever it is called.

^I don't think that is going to be build before the towers 2 and 3 are finished.

That's full steam ahead. It'll be finished and open probably late '14. After that they'll demolish the PATH entrance just east of 1WTC and make way for the Performing Arts Center.

That's a marvelous angle to shoot from! (And yes, I mean with cameras...)

New York's skyline - the best of the best.

The last pic posted by Otie is simply stunning. Lower Manhattan is so beautiful, its skyline alone would be a 10.

2 meters less than the ESB, awesome! By the way, after this is completed, do you think they will try to keep it as nyc's tallest building, or will they allow taller buildings to be built ?
