Is edge of the tower roughly marked by the steel beams or is it much bigger. Because when I compared it to former WTC, steel beam mark is smaller.

The dark colors you are seeing are the steel bars of the rebar. The fresh poured concrete is grey and much lighter

PA HONCHO IS BLUE-CROSS

By PATRICK GALLAHUE

April 25, 2008 -- The head of the Port Authority yesterday slammed the outrageous trashing of confidential Freedom Tower blueprints.

"There is a construction protocol as to how you get rid of blueprints and plans you no longer need," said Chairman Anthony Coscia.

"It was not followed in this instance . . . We are looking into the issue. We are investigating how it occurred."

Last week, The Post reported that a homeless man found the blueprints - detailing floor plans, air ducts, elevators, electrical systems and support columns - in a SoHo trash can.

Days later, two self-proclaimed "salvage experts" recovered from a Dumpster 300 pounds of documents containing the personal information of Ground Zero workers and blueprints for World Trade Center 4, the temporary PATH station, construction specifications for World Trade Center 7, and plans for the PA Police Headquarters.

I think that if a large corporation was to become a tenant they might take the name of that tenant. In colloquial usage if nothing else, like how WTC7 was known as the Salomon Brothers Building.

By the way, the improper disposal of blueprints is one thing but the improper disposal of workers personal records is just inexcusable.

Is there alternative way to post photos apart from just linking url to the photo, because sometimes I can't do that. Like copy and paste doesn't work for me.

on the bottom left you'll see calender, compare 24th and 26th april. Then you'll see result of pour yesterday on the left wall of freedom tower from our view

In this image, on the left outer wall part of this foundation there're orange coloured floors with steel beams along it. This is where concrete was poured 2 days ago, so are they steel rebars???

Happy Anniversary Freedom Tower

If I'm not mistaken, today marks the first day of the third year of construction on the FT. Two down and another almost 4 to go. That would make it 1/3 complete? By the way, I've read that it'll now be late summer to early fall before the tower rises above street level.

Random question... OK, I know that the construction site in the upper-right corner of the pit is going to be Tower 1. I know the long structure running left to right through the middle of the footprint is the replacement subway/PATH station. But what's the structure in the foreground (bottom, about 2/3 of the way to the right in the webcam)? It looks like a significant structure, but will be completely buried when the entire WTC site is finished. Are those construction offices? It doesn't look like it's attached to the train station. What gives?

Hard to know what you're talking about without a marked up picture but if you're talking about the structure at the bottom of the picture with the construction trailers on it, between towers 2 & 3, then that's where the Calatrava transit hub will be. That would be the permanent station as opposed to the current temp stations which will be gone by 2012.

If you're taking about the structure running beside the FT, then that's the east-west path corrider to the WFC.

I believe that white or off whtie colored structure your talking about at the bottom of the picture, is/was the farehouse/concourse/corridor for the current PATH station that is now closed, and ready to be demolished for the new PATH station.
