I just cleaned this mess again.

People, you need to stop the childish fights about the old WTC, the height, twin towers, antenna instead of spire and the likes!

Just keep your posts straight and factual. I know the new WTC is controversial for its location alone, but you need to accept that time's moving on.

If some people can't behave again there will be brigs and bans.

Cordial thanks for your attention. Now please keep moving it forward!

I think it was said before that people stupid enough to fall into the pit deserve to fall into the pit.

In the first picture, if you choose the largest size. It seems that the upper floors of One Liberty Plaza have a dirtier and brighter look, then the lower floors.

No, that building is being completely repainted. Right now, they're scraping off the old paint and adding some protective substance on the steel.

by then it will likely be a tropical storm or less. I hear talk of snow though. Believable because of what happened last year around Halloween.

Flexible rulers, I'm not from the New England, but what is the need for flexible rulers? On subject. It must [not] be fun standing on something on the tall floors and attaching glass to the mid level beam. I mean the beam between the floor receiving glass and the next floor.

the DOB has already asked for a list of cranes and locations in use in the city and is planning to do drive bys to make sure they are properly secured ahead of the storm

Yea but the sustained winds will be around 65 mph so gusts could top 80

A tropical blizzard/ice storm? Is that what is expected out of this? I can't even imagine that much snow, or even worse, ice. The cranes on the roof must be in danger. Wouldn't the crane on the side be most susceptible to ice and wind due to the cold altitude and position on the face of a very large object that the wind would whip around? I have too many questions. Another, why are all of the buttons on this forum suddenly in Spanish? I'm using my regular bookmark.
