Is there a webcam active where they're visible? I haven't seen their progress for a few days.

You can never replace the original WTCs, but this one will do the old justice in my opinion. Looking forward to seeing this one rise. And yes, it does seem quite slow.

This is too slow!

I have seen countless skyscrapers rise after 9/11 throughout Manhattan.

Those of you complaining about how slow it is should go present your wonderful ideas on how things can be sped up to the relevant people. Surely you know how to make things faster? You wouldn't complain unless you had an intimate understanding of all the little details of the entire job would you? Of course not. That would be the behavior of a complete jackass.

Hint hint.

We are comparing this project to the dozens of other (finished) projects throughout the city over the years since 9/11/01.

As for your other comment, that was not nice!

It doesn't have to be nice to be the truth...

It will rise when it rises guys, give it time. Rome wasn't built in a day. 7WTC went through the same slow-start process. It'll kick up.

Thank you, ramvid01 for recognizing the transit hub.

In that particular photo, you can clearly see the arches that cover the walkway within the transit hub.
