The glass building called The Winter Garden is about a 6 or 7 minute walk from my Uncle's apartment. We go to free concerts there.

-- It was badly damaged on Sept. 11th, 2001, but not destroyed. Obviously a lot of glass had to be replaced.

-- the palm trees ( Washingtonia sp. ) are real, alive and growing; not fake.

South Core did rise one more floor between yesterday and this morning. I guess that I was right last week when I said that they poured the south core, but maybe not the day I said it.

indeed, the height difference between north and south core is just constantly getting worse.

At least its a progress, now we should be able to see lot of the south core from the streets.

look from today at 11:30AM to 12:15AM but only the east half of the southern core rose, not the west half of it.

it has been long time since re-pour of the bad batch of concrete has taken place, so this reason isn't the cause of no activity at the northen core. But one thing for sure is that in 4 years time when the documentary on this construction comes out we can know then.

I think it overhangs the PATH tracks, but I'm not sure. Maybe they're reinforcing the lower portion?

Anyway, can they please solve any red tape and legal issues and speed up the construction. We really want to see the tower way above the huge hole.

Thanx to AkltinD, Fish, Twilight, NYGirl and Philvia for teh quick informative response... cheers!
While i have you all here and seems you so helpful... can any of you give me next weeks winning lottery numbers???

The next level for the north core will overhang the PATH tracks, it is like a reverse setback, more like a setforward, so it will take a while before it is poured.

In other words it should not be long before it is poured again since it has been several months since the last pour.

Are you suggesting that the tracks will run under the core

Well that's what I thought and now someone from NYC has said the same thing so I'm going to say that yes they will run under the core. Kind of a wonky design, but I'm sure they will reinforce the hell out of it as a result.

Here is an annimated gif I put together of yesterday's jump from the earthcam at 15 minute intervals:
