More progress on the SW and South facades' cladding today. It should catch up to the currently highest panes by tomorrow or Thursday.

Just wondering, the corners at the base that are being squared off, what are they filling those spaces with? Concrete? Steel? Surely they aren't just cladding over them?

The background looks much better than the foreground.

Another comment about the Verizon Building?

Just be glad it's not the Beaver House in that location.

So I highly doubt another 9/11 type of attack will ever happen again.
Why aren't you banned yet?

I really hope the base doesn't look like a larger version of 7's base with some glass fins slapped on. I have never been a huge fan of the base on Seven.

As for the Earthcams, they have gone down often over the years. They are on top of the Hilton and it used to take months for them to fix the only camera we had back then. Be glad they are offering them to the public.

@ Thatoneguy: Beaver House? You mean the black and yellow one I suppose?

That tower isn't bad, it just looks somewhat odd between all these old building in the financial district, it would have been better somewhere in Brooklyn or the upper east side.

Some of you are disgraceful judging some of these older buildings, the contrast between the timeline of architecture is what makes NYC beautiful! (And unique)
