It's really AWESOME to see the Mast reach new heights. However, does anyone know if they're going to possibly PAINT it!? I really hope so because it is filthy looking.

Powerful, imposing, impressive and almost ominous. Just like NYC's (and a good chunk of the world's) financial cockpit it towers over. A giant middle finger to all who seek to inflict violence on American citizens on a mass scale in the one of the world's most dense urban environments. We mourn, we recover and comeback stronger than ever. America has more than its share of flaws and God knows we much yet to answers for in our history, but it this can-do "we chose to do things because they are hard" attitude is what I'm most proud of as a US citizen.

Very beautiful photos... Will the spire be painted after being installed or not?

Well, I think they must be proud of this beauty. It´s the new icon of NYC.

Well I like it! Reminds me of the North tower but only better looking. Can't wait until the whole site is finished and done with.

Piece #5 going up! I'm guessing its going to go right in since #6 is in the staging area already.

Number #6 is about to be placed on top, this will make the mast definately visible from the cams!

Edit: the crane looks like its going for something else now, are there any pieces left on the ground?

Wow, they're really picking up the pace lately.

With that said, don't expect to see ANY progress on the site from tomorrow until at least next Monday. There is a MASSIVE winter Nor'easter getting ready to slam NYC and New England. There will be rain at first tomorrow, turning into a blizzard as the day continues. Local news is now forecasting 5"-8" of snow for Central Park.

Boston could be getting up to two feet

Hey guys, hate to post this kind of question, but I was unsuccessful after looking for a while: does anybody have a link regarding detailed information on the window cleaning system that will be used?
