No, no new plans. It Just means that no decision in the height is going to be made until it's complete.

That's too funny, Durst ADDING TO instead of TAKING AWAY from this American Icon. They are in this to cut costs so that they get a slice of the money saved.

Yea, I think so. They got knocked out of place. This is all that earthcam is showing:

No i think all the lights are on due to security. Btw, i'm sure they can turn them off every time they want to

Well I've just got back from 10 nights in New York and I had a fantastic time.

I thought I would share a few of my holiday photos which include 1WTC so I can contribute to this topic. They were all taken between 6-14th August.

Enjoy!
