Gonna be interesting when they drive it through Tribeca.

I work really early (5am) to support our trading desk operations, so I'll probably swing over and take pictures before I go to work.

I guess they will transfer the pieces into smaller barges to make it easier to unload them in Manhattan, maybe?

Anyway, it is already in Newark. Does anybody saw it arriving in New York?

It went south on the east river then west through killvan kull then it's final route was north up Newark Bay. It's now in Don Jon Marine's yard in Newark Bay. I believe my buddy from J. Supor is suppose to move it to Tower 1. If he does I will sure have some pics to post

Nice the antenna is almost ready to be installed on 1WTC. How many more barges until all the sections arrive to NY?

Yeah, it's been there since at least 10:00 this morning, but they don't appear to be doing anything with it.

Looking at the antenna over the past few days, it sure has grown on me. I quite like the look of it.

So congrats! Really amazing!
