This tower never tops out or what? Or you guys are waiting for that crappy antenna to be sticked on top so you can call it topped out...

^ Nice!

Structural steel and cable for the cable-net wall at the south entrance is well in progress.

Thanks! I think it's going to be quite imposing contrary to the renders, that one little section that have up looks good already so I can imagine three would make if stand out a lot!

What's being erected is the Ring supports and the window washing track. The platform rings are yet to be erected. Lower one is 145' wide, middle 142' and top one is 139'.

Those are cool shots, everytime I try to get to the cam it will say 1wtc cam then nothing!! So i love these shots from these cams,, I have no problem with 432 park avenue cam though. The verizon building is a nice building,, just looks so out of place amongst these drastically different looking buildings.

by lower, middle and upper levels, Otie is referring to Level 108, 109, 110. There are three rings and each has a slightly smaller outside diameter as the levels go up.

KPI cams are no longer online. The Earthcam cams are acting alittle weird-The cameras point at their original spots during the morning/evening, and then are repostioned during afternoon.
