As much as I hate to admit, I understand people getting anxious and even impatient. The best update we've ssen in a loooong while is something like a "Hey, a few beams of steel just went up! woooot "

But I still stand firm in my opinion that this one is a sleek looking glass skyscraper.

I agree, sleek, angled, but the spire is too tall.
truthfully, I think downtown Manhattan will start to rival midtown. Isnt that crazy? How sick will NYC skyline look with the entire WTC complex complete...along with goldman sachs..it will look glorious.

Ive learned to appreciate the skyscrapers going up around the world nowadays. While I am biased towards the traditional art deco and gothic styles of scrapers, the world is always changing and many towers, when I view them with this attitude, look 10X better. especially FT.

downtown will look slick, and very futuristic, if the wtc buildings resemble the renderings. but I meant to say it'll look sick, as in very good.

The needle top is not quite coherence with the spire.

My friend, who's in contact with some of the workers, says he's pretty sure that some tower cranes will be up in April. I can't believe the NY Times had it wrong. I sill wish I could see the site via a live cam. I hear that all of the below grade beams will be up after spring.

Judging by whats int he middle, it seems to be the base of the crane that maybe erected.
