I guess no topping out tomorrow.. oh well. I seriously hope they pick up the pace with the cladding though. It'd be nice for them to make some progress on that while they're not putting up any steel

In relation to the topic, the Port Authority is expecting about 5 million visitors heading to the Observation Decks every year, I'm curious though how will they accommodate all those extra visitors when the west plaza looks more like a barren terrace.

Visited the World Trade Center yesterday with my friends for the first time since December of 2010 when it was just a small structure, now it looks massive and imposing, and you can see it from almost anywhere in the city now!!

I haven't seen it in a while either... since summer 2009, when it basically looked like the wtc2 and even shorter than the current wtc3 - just the foundation's core ony a few floors high. Can't wait to see it again and have a large icon in the city. It felt nice seeing sears tower's massive structure whenever I visited chitown, but haven't gotten that same feeling in nyc with no wtc in a long time... now it'll be awesome to have our own humongo building to always say "hi" to us everyday

I'm going to be seeing it in about three weeks when I travel to New York. Last time I was there was in April 2002, when cleanup was still taking place. It will be an exciting time for me

Tower 4 is topped out, so I would imagine that the need for a camera would be unnessacry. Unless they will keep it up for the glass installation.

I could be wrong, but again, One World Trade Center isn't topping out today or tomorrow. Floor decking floor the 104th floor isn't complete. The 105th floor needs to be complete for a true topping out, and not a "half ass" one.
