Love that last photo. The bolted windows kind of spoil it, however.

Went to the memorial for the first time today.

The suns reflection off of the buildings made it difficult to take pictures of them, esp 1 WTC.

That is currently on hold and is above street level to hold the mechanical for the Transit Hub. There has been no recent news about it. The thread for it can be found here.

It is currently on hold. We want it to start construction, but that's basically impossible without 3 WTC starting construction first, because that's the building Silverstein is focused to get built at the moment. However, many of us are still optimistic that all of the towers will be built (maybe except for 5 WTC and possibly 6 WTC, the Performing Arts Center.)

And the fact that 2 WTC has rose above street level is the result of the foundation being done. At it needs to do is rise.

You can use a photo hosting site, like Tinypic.

It's really a shame that 2WTC is on hold, because in my opinion, it's the prettiest. Hopefully a great future for the WTC site...

Please take all 9/11 Memorial or Museum talk to the appropriate thread in the 'General Urban Development' section. Thank you.

Condé wants a kitchen in its cafeteria floor.
