I noticed that about the netting around the base. But I didn't spot the spire piece. Two very nice signs.

Another angle of the spire, from the now-functional 7 WTC cam. (Cam here: http://www.video-monitoring.com/cons...itv/silver.htm )

Seems like a lot of progress near the end of the year. Can't wait to see the end result!

2 Questions:

1. It seems like base cladding is about to begin, when should we see the first pieces of the base glass go up and why haven't they squared the base off yet?

2. When will we see the first mast sections be lifted up?

We still have quite a bit of December to go through, they'll square it off soon. Kinda hard when the netting's in the way

So that's probably section #1 unless they have already lifted one (or more) or one (or more) is out of view. And as far as the crane being too short: Is it possible they could place a larger crane tower around the existing tower, then have the inner one telescope up so it looks like the crane tower in this diagram?

Nice antenna... but its just that, and the tower should be listed at its true height.

these first pieces of on-site antenna segments look more like the smaller, thinner pieces being brought down from Canada by truck, i.e. section 10 +

I was walking to the PATH station and just happened to walk past one of the spire pieces. Figured you guys would like a close up view.
