Does anybody know what the building next to tower 7 is called???
The one that looks like a sand castle. It looks really old next to tower 7 and once the rest of the trade centre is finished is going to look older...

The Verizon Building, I believe. The other one still is or was the Post Office Building.

WOW! I really like the construction cranes. Clean and sexy. Probably the best looking construction cranes in operations right now. They are probably cleaned everyday.

About 09-11-11, provided everything remains on schedule and stays within the construction timetable.

^ It should open months before that, and top out about a year before that.


It looks like they are taking down the other tower crane. Shouldn't take long to fix/extend.

Looks like they're going to be lowering the boom on the north crane this weekend. There are two trucks with crane boom sections (just like last weekend).

Also, there is a new mobile crane being constructed in preparation for raising the steel for the north memorial.

I figured that other crane would get an overhaul as well. Steel for the memorial. Great!!!

If I recall correctly, there was no visible progress on the GS site for almost two years.

This projects isn't years or months away from exploding, but only a few weeks from starting its fast climb to the long apex.

Have they decided yet if this stairway will be demolished? I used it to access the WTC plaza and Towers in July 2000 and when I visited the site on Sept.11 this year saw it as the only physical thing left not counting the familiar surrounding buildings. Using this as a starting point I could remember the plaza level and tower locations....I know it has been referred to as the survivors stairway but it effected me personally and my memories. Once the Freedom Tower and rest of the WTC is completed other than the memorials over the original tower footprints will there be any part of the original WTC existing in its original location?

A decision was made. I'm not sure, but I think it's being chopped up and moved to the WFC. Someone correct me if I'm wrong please.

The thing that gets me when you look at my pic is......you can imagine the original level of the plaza...you would have gone up this stair then turned left between WTC's 5 and 6...walk straight ahead and the corner of WTC 1 rose just to the right, you turned your head to the left...the bronze sphere slowly turned in the centre of the plaza with water running at it's base...flags flapping in the breeze...WTC 2 soaring right ahead of you....see I see all of this just looking at my pic of this lump of raw concrete...will it be the same if it is cut up and moved to a different location?.....If it becomes a choice of that or losing it completely I accept the move......and I'm just an Australian from the opposite side of the world so New Yorkers..and Americans may have stronger feelings.

Here's a guess at why they've changed the cranes booms. or had them down at least... when i was there about 3 weeks ago both cranes had single drop lines... ie one cable, which they actually tethered.. ie hooked on to a big concrete block each night... anyway, in one of the last photo's of the south crane, it now has a two drop line system.. So that's a wild guess at why they have changed them.. two lines are better that one..
