And another reason which that terrorist Pataki used for justification of him pushing so much for that second class Libeskind's site plan has just collapsed. I really hate how they criticize the superblock and then build just the same superblock which they were criticizing. A street closed to cars is not a street, just a walkway and even the old superblock had many walkways

I agree with you, Greenwich needs to be open.

I agree. One question though, when you say Fulton street is being built, will it cut across the entire site like planned or from West Street to Greenwich then end. You said yesterday that the hubs plaza pavers will extend all the way over to Tower 2 so I'm not sure if that means they axed Fulton running in between the hub and T2.

Also, wasn't the whole reason 7WTC is designed the way it is so Greenwich can run through the site? Seems like so much has gone into this already to make this as much of an open space as possible and yet they are just making it more and more of a fortress.

Yes, Fulton will remain as a street from West/9A Route to Church, though as you get closer to the hub/T2, asphalt will be gradually vanishing into messabi pavers, and disolving again into asphalt before intersecting with Church, this according to the landscape drawings, as I previously said, I haven't seen the final streets program drawings, so many things can change.

Great, thanks for letting us know. I see how the netting is gone on one side of the tower. Hopefully we see more glass soon!

Is it just me or has slotted cladding began on the SW side? New glass is up but I can't tell if it's slotted or not.

The color looks a little bit darker, but I think it's only the light, looks like normal cladding to me still. But definately a new row has started!
