I know that part is the 6th part, and we know the 4th part is placed on the spire, so that means that now part 5 and 6 are on top waiting to be placed.

The most recent KPI shot from 7WTC shows one still left, but I don't know old the picture is. What is really strange about this picture is that the crane line is going way off towards the temporary PATH entrance. Edit: Perhaps it's a rope used to stabilize the piece that is being lifted?

And for anyone wondering, I'm using Beber's redirect link to see the most recent KPI shot. The KPI page hasn't updated since yesterday.

What does the pit mean?? I don't get it
The building in front (or beside, not sure) the 1WTC is gorgeous.. I like the idea of them being close to each other, nice contrast between classic and modern

Piece #5 is still on the ground. Interesting that they went ahead and lifted #6 first. Guess #5 will be lifted directly onto #4? Sections #9-12 had been double stacked for a very long time, but one of those has been moved to be in line between #7a and #7b, near #5.

The vents really give a cool industrial look. Gives it more character...reminds me of the original WTC windows

Close-up of the platform used to install the spire. Amazing work!
