A dog runs and jumps into the pit, the child chases after the dog and falls into the pit.

I suppose the child and his/her dog both deserved it, eh?

^That same argument can be used for ANY banister - balconies, observation decks, etc. So now we should have six foot walls on every more or less open space? And besides, why would a dog jump into a waterfall?

Dumb kids will find some way to kill themselves regardless. It's much easier for that dog they are chasing to just run out in the middle of the road. If your kid is either so dumb or so young that they would jump into a gaping pit, then you just wouldn't let them run around near it, just like you wouldn't let them play out by a road unattended. The world is full of far more dangerous things than this memorial. Parents who want to keep their kids protect them from these things.

Guys, I may not be a frequent visitor in this part of the forums, BUT, having been to NY three times and the old WTC twice, Let me tell you one thing:

This complex is NY ιn its finest hour. I like all buildings (the Foster one more to be exact). Speaking in meters, NY will get with a snap of a finger, many of the 300m-1000ft - plus towers needed for it to make a comeback.

About time, that is...

I was by the site yesterday, and that crane that was shown in the webcam is not a construction crane, plus there was another minor crane at the same place as well.

I don't care about the dog, that was just an example (the child chasing the dog). And what if someone faints right by the barrier? huh? Please......

I shouldn't have said anything.

But I would hope that a big hole is a big nono to a young child.

Or at least the parents would be more mindful of the actions of their children.

i'm sure they will put something like a barrier or something else there. if they don't want a law suit for someone falling down there

Dogs have jumped off 600 ft cliffs before, sometimes they are chasing a bird or a leaf...

So... the main problem for a child and a dog in New York is a thin piece of metal... no problems for them with balconies on a 45th floor, with the traffic, with all kind of... I will call them unfriendly people, in the street and parks

There will be a normal barrier and that's ok. We can say something if the design has no fence because of some stupid modern design idea, but in the render I can see a fence/barrier.

I hope that works would increase speed and soon we could see the rising building. And then we'll speak about the important thing: the construction of a new skyscraper. This thread always has problems because the lack of construction events and images in the area...
