Not sure which photos were posted more than once, but I only see one of each and only one of each were posted. Maybe I'm missing something...

Thanks! I've been wanting to visit the memorial for some time now and finally got the chance this past Saturday. Words cannot describe how it looks. One World Trade Center is enormous! And to see One and Four together, all mirrored and reflecting the sky was just incredible. I can only imagine after seeing the towers uncompleted and how amazing they looked, how amazing the site will look when One, Two, Three and Four towers are all completed.

Thanks for the crane information everyone. I've always wondered how they get cranes down from towers when there is only one left. I'm excited to see what will go on with the base cladding and the antenna construction.

Actually 7 towers. They might rename the performing arts center to 6WTC.

This is almost finished, how many floors are left to be completed? It seems to be only a few? Or just the parapet?

It's T/O. The communications ring is about to begin construction.

That means the thread status should be changed from U/C to T/O.

We still don't know if the mast will be considered an antenna or spire. Just in case it's a spire, we can't say it is T/O.

to OnePointWest, the reason one twin, the South Tower, looked taller than the North Tower was the South Tower was closer to you, based on your point of view.

They haven't even started putting the spire up

They still need to erect the communications ring, and pour the roof slab, among other things.

So the true statement would not be "actually 7 towers" but "actually 6 towers, with the performing arts center POSSIBLY being renamed 6 WTC." It's not going to happen though...just my intuition.
