My guess is that's true. I was just wondering if anyone has heard anything.

All of the talking is over (it has been over for many months) and the plan is as concrete as the Freedom Tower's rising core. I bet Spitzer tells to the new guy:

1- Don't mess with the WTC
2- Don't pay em' hoes with cash

Maybe its a bit offtopic, but what has happened to those plans undertunneling the west street at the trade center to make a plaza which connects the WFC and WTC?

Imo it was a great idea!

Pouring 'crete through buckets on the western side of the core. Looks like parts of the floor are being poured there. (very slim strip)

To those that complain about how slow things have been going, listen up:

The Foundations for the original Twins have be preserved.
Foundations have been sunk for the Freedom Tower.
Now the steel columns are being installed over and straddling the PATH track ways below.
The foundations for the memorial are almost complete.
The WFC pedestrian connector is taking shape.
Underpinning the sub line though the site is ongoing and is nearing completetion.
The new long-term temporary PATH station is almost complete which allow the old one to be dismantled.
Also a pit was dug so that WTC3 & WTC4 can begin their own foundations.
Of course that was after massive utilities relocation all around the superblock.

And there's still an old subway station that needs to be dismantled.


Doing all that takes time.
IF you think you could do better then please explain how you would get it done quick.

The West Street tunnel is NOT being built. At least not for now.

The corridor that you're speaking of IS for the pedestrian tunnel link for underground access to the WFC from the new PATH Station.

The whole idea is to eventually link the WFC as well as the WTC with the PATH Station and the Fulton Street Transit Station.

i wonder if people dare to go into this tower...

You all know it was a traumatism and i would not surprised of frightened reactions of people who will work in this place. the traumatism is too high and present.

The tower is cool but the place reminds me too much what you know. If one day i go in New york, i can't imagine to go to the top of tower

People were once afraid to go back to work in the ESB after it was hit by the war plane lost in fog trying to get to Newark, NJ.


There are STILL people working in there today. Some have stated that they would go back to work in the Twins if they were rebuilt.

I believe that corridor will also help support Fulton Street when it's put back through there to run past the PATH Station and Freedom Tower.

Foundation is looking great! But i want to start seeing this tower begin to rise before i lose all motivation for this structure.

BTW, does anyone know if all 4 WTC's will be constructed at the same time??

Imagine seeing 4 massive towers in very close vicinity of each other being built at the same time...beautiful. lol

Plus New York winters are freezing cold but not as excruciating as Chicago.

A steel beam was added today. If you look carefully, it was placed on the eastern side of the core right up against the wall of the PATH tunnel. You can just see it peering over the roof of the tunnel, and a side of it.

I also believe I saw the delivery of steel at around 12-1 PM today.
