Hopefully about early to mid December. This is an educated guess. My reasoning is that the current South crane is in the perfect position to erect the communication ring structure on that side. In the end we'll have to wait, but we do know that the lower sections of the mast will arrive late this month, but will not be erected until a yet-to-be-seen TG-1900 that will be located on the top of the platform. We're all waiting to see the first steel rise above the parapet level.

Chill out, name calling only makes you look bad.


Anyhow, I'll have to see what the antenna looks like before I could ever cast an opinion. At this point, it's unknown.

Wow that photo is incredible! 1WTC looks huge in this picture. A lot of people have been saying that NY is falling behind because it doesn't have anything 2000'+ bla bla, but 1WTC totally dominates the skyline and IMO would look silly if any taller.

I agree. Its height is near ideal in relation to it's surroundings, though maybe not in relation to WTC3 and 2 when they are built. It looks massive in that picture, truly reminiscent of the impression the old Twins gave.

My head just exploded with that photo andru posted.

Good god...it is not hyperbole when I say that may be the most amazing skyline photo I have ever seen.

The only thing that could top it? Take that exact same photo after 1WTC is topped out. Please do this.
