Sounds like Goldman Sachs really took New York for everything they could via their threat to move. Must be nice to be able to legally blackmail the government.

Actually, you are only talking about 5 hours which is relatively short for pours on a major construction site. Many times pours can go 12 or more hours for projects like this and for projects such as nuclear power plants can go several days. The continuous pour is required for slab integrity and overall strength.

Yeah, you can see the forms almost touching street level. One more hop up and the core may be slightly above the street.

From the view of the usual webcam http://www.earthcam.net/users2/inter...2&clientid=158 they're working on the wall on the left side of the freedom tower site. Its covering with white and black paint or something, I don't know, someone kindly tell me what that is please.

That looks like its for the memorial, not the Freedom Tower. I read an article a few weeks back that they were going to leave part of the wall exposed after they reinforced the whole thing, so maybe that is what they are starting to do?

The black stuff you see on the slurry wall is bitumen sheeting. They're placing it to prevent water and vapor entering the memorial building. I don't know exactly what the white sheeting is. It probably placed to prevent the bitumen from being damaged during the placement of the rebar and the concrete pour. The part in the middle without the sheeting will be exposed to the public like meh_cd said. They dug a second slurry wall behind that part to reduce the amount of tension on the old slurry wall.

Well you're right mate, in the south east corner around 2:00 pm. And the progress is really going on now.
