I thought ZZ lived in Germany lol.

And what he sees can be seen from the webcam. I don't know why you guys are complaining, it isn't that fuzzy.

the green rebar is coated with anti rust coating. The green color is added to avoid mistakes with normal (brown/grey) rebar which isn't protected against rust.

What other buildings are being built with the Freedom Tower in the World Trade Center site?

Great images. That steel beam in the foreground partly encased in concrete is heavy rebar!

We are going to see a lot of new steel structure and the core rising even more very shortly; the core today looks very different from the pictures I posted above.

The core grew A LOT during these past few days.

I think the GS Tower (750 feet tall - same as 7WTC) will top out in a month or so. It seems to be at least half done and the glass is looking much better than I expected so it will look well with the Freedom Tower. Also, I think the curve will look amazing too.
Progress on it is picking up again:

I really love seeing all of its steel. It will have a major impact on the skyline since its next to the water. It may be a good place to put a cam to record construction of other parts of the WTC site. I hope they put a cam up on the top of the WFC so we can watch the other towers rise too.

They are also pouring in the vicinity of the core. Problem is I can't see where the arm ends because of the water droplet blurring that part of the screen.
