Great! How long can we expect the installation to take?

Please have some respect, reflect on what happened at this site, and think of how your words and negativity may be perceived by others.

The beacon shouldn't be lit just because YOU want to see it lit on a certain day. That's the equivalent of wanting to turn on the water to the two voids "just to do it" before the names are mounted and the marble installed. The beacon is mounted, but there are still 8 temporary platforms to be removed, an elevator to be dismantled, glass to be installed, and a crane to come down.

Just my humble perspective.
That elevator is going to be there in some capacity at least until mid 2014 so that Conde Nast can fit out their floors.

I've been beaten to this point by quite a few, but like it or not, this isn't your building. Sorry for your loss, but there is a very large memorial across the street just for you.

Someone screwed up and forgot to submit some simple paperwork. It's as simple as that.

Yes, because now we are back in the 1800's and Manifest Destiny is what we live by. Please, nothing rightfully belongs to anybody. Terrorists have deterred, have influenced how things are done and what is built. Why is 1WTC being built like a fortress then? Patriot Act? NSA spying?

It's called technological advancement. Structures can be built more structurally sound, in the 21st century than 40 or 50 years ago. It is because, it is more economically and structurally feasible. One way they did not cave in to those sub-human terrorist lowlives, is that it was build to match the height of the originals. Besides it's not going to happen again!

Nope, the guys are 6inch diameter kevlar ropes, these could be the lines that will pull the top end into place though.

The Port Authority also owns and manages the 16-acre World Trade Center site, where construction crews are building the iconic One World Trade Center, which is now the tallest skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere. The Port Authority receives no tax revenue from either the State of New York or New Jersey or from the City of New York. The agency raises the necessary funds for the improvement, construction or acquisition of its facilities primarily on its own credit. For more information, please visit http://www.panynj.gov.
The Federal and State and City rebuilding costs for the World Trade Center are being financed by the taxpayers. One World Trade is a huge gift to the Port Authority by the taxpayers.

Assuming the photo is real, and it certainly looks real, they had every intention to have the spire lit for the Fourth. Someone- some pinhead bureaucrat-----effed up big time. What a shame for those involved in trying to make it happen.

Just noticed something peculiar...on the Earthcam Tower1 base view, adjacent to that new structure they erected on the east side of the tower, there appears to be an elongated hole in the new ground structure. Was this caused by some type of failure/partial collapse?
