How long should it take them to complete the curtain wall? A couple of months? It's so close to the top!! Can't wait to see it all finished

I know someone who worked in Cantor Fitzgerald in the North Tower and was late for work on 9/11.

Hopefully the cladding will have covered most of both structures by this September.

It's a panorama shot taken with a smartphone. If you move the phone too much while taking the pano, or don't hold it on the line, it will distort the image in the same spot where the movement occurred. My iPhone 5 does the same thing if the phone isn't held steady.

Look at the left side of the image, or even in the middle, those two peoples' legs were cut off, probably because they came into the frame as the pano was being taken.
