Long time lurker, first time poster. This is by far the best thread on the site (although 432 Park is getting good too!) The last time I was in New York, 1 WTC was just a few stories of steel above street level. It's so exciting to see it nearly topped out. Thanks for all the pictures and the education in spandrel beams, parapets and spire/antenna distinctions!

Does bullying respected forumers make you feel good?

Again I will note that there is nothing wrong on dedication. This forum is for talking and therefore there is nothing like talking too much. The more discussion in a thread the better

Back on topic, those 14 spandrels will soon be up there so I hope when that happens there will be a top out ceremony. And the temporary structure seems to be well in progress even though the core has not yet reached the top slab

They are presently lifting a huge (approximately 100ft~) vertical column of stairs, presumably for the antenna/spire whatever you want to call it!

Why do you keep bashing Chris and Chibear?Is it because they favor 1WTC over your favorite buildings,or is it because you wholeheartedly hate them for no apparent reason?
