They really take the time on this tower. I'd like to see it rise soon.

The Cortlandt St. station on the yellow line is still open?



Sorry for asking so many unuseful questions but it's pretty hard to understand what's going on and where on this site

Lower manhattan detailed subway map :

PATH station is very much open, for the last 4-5 years. The tracks are really doing a loop, however they have seperate points of entry into the site and the station is to the left of the 1 line.

The 1 line's stop will be open eventually, but right now it's in the middle of a construction site.

Cortland Station is not open because of construction going on in that area. However I believed the northbound platform will open in the coming months.

Just few moments ago they put plywood or formwork or however you call the thing over north east core of the foundation. (may be getting ready for major concrete pour)

The formwork is always on the core walls in this project. They are just lifting the formwork and putting a temporary floor above the core to work on putting in more rebar.

They did some serious laying down of rebar for the rest of the floor today. It would not be surprising to see a pour of another part of the floor by this coming Friday.

OK, at http://www.earthcam.net/users2/inter...2&clientid=158 today, 8th may 2008. I'm just curious if this happens other constructions, I know that form work only rises not goes back down.

(Compare pictures 6:45 AM and 7:00 AM, the form work on south core rise.

Compare pictures 7:00 AM and 7:15 AM, the form work goes back down

Play slide photos from 10:45 AM to 12 o clock, the form work slowly rises again)

One question, on that webcam, at freedom tower area below the core area there are construction workers active maybe putting in rebars. The floors there are black colour, I want to know what they are. I mean These floors really change in height compare 8th may and 7th may, the black floors rose by a lot.

I have grown to like the Freedom Tower, though I still hate that podium, though. It will not have any floors at all. and the 100th and 101st floors may house a new Windows on the World restaurant and bar.
