Man, I can't wait to post a picture of the WTC from 40 miles out on the Robert Moses Bridge or Fire Island Lighthouse when it's done! No doubt you will clearly be able to see it since you can already make out the ESB easily. I'm too young to have seen this myself, but my family tells me they used to see the old WTC from Northern State Parkway in Huntington and clearly from the Robert Moses Bridge. At least I have a picture with the old WTC in the background when I was about 10! I still have to find it though -___-.

I think night crews has began work on the communication rings. There have been nights when large trucks carrying large pieces of steel have been brought to the site.

If I'm not mistaken, it's a Gypsum-based plaster coating, which helps to fireproof the steel.

I think it's a layer of some kind of fireproof foam.
