I don't want to get political, but the last picture of the beam I've seen shows that they welded a plate over the Presidents signature. Just one of those random/useless trivia facts.

Well great shot to whoever took it. Two iconic towers in the shot (ESB and 1WTC). City looks great to.

Wow, I didn't know when I posted the link earlier ppl on diz forum taught it was OK. So that's the excuse, "their men", "it's been done all over the world", "no big deal". I didn't know that's how grown ass men act. Do you even see the ignorance posted all over that building. This is 1WTC we're talking about, not a brand new prison. Don't matter if it'll be cover up. Look what they did to the President's message. I taught they wrote memorial or inspiration messages. You get it. God for bid if they attack this building again or doing repairs, who the hell wants to see that. You think when "men" were building the ESB or nation's capital they had time for that. This explains why they were so slow on putting up them windows on them remaining floors cause they were too busy tryna fill in ignorance on every open steel.

im on vacation this week but stepped into the thread for an update.


the fact of the matter is that ****house graffiti is completely normal. i havent been on a project that hasnt had some colorful drawings/racist/sexist etc notes....

take it with a grain of salt...what is the labor force made up of??? i will read the daily news from time to time but at the end of the day it is a local rag paper that is looking for a story.


there is nothing abnormal about it....

Very impressive in 1932 but with the new towers it will be incredible in 2013-2014.
