Good updates.

2 Questions:

1. What are they doing against the Wall on the memorial Site?
2. When is the next crane likely to be erected?

They are reinforcing the slurry wall with a new inner liner. It's about two feet thick of reinforced concrete. They are leaving one section bare for the memorial and it has been reinforced with a new slurry wall on the other side.

Supposedly two new kangaroo type tower cranes will be erected for the memorial before September 19th and two more tower cranes will be added to the Freedom Tower after the whole building gets past the ground level. I would guess we'll see the first tower crane for Tower 4 sometime in the next three months.

Looks like earthcam has gone down again. That's like the third time this summer. I sure hope they get it running quicker than last time when it was down for two weeks.

Of course several years ago it took pictures of the gravel on the roof for several months.


ETA it seems to be working again already yay!

There must be a reason for why the cam goes down so frequently. Otherwise they should invest in some better technology...

Could be many things. But consider that this camera is on the roof of a 500 foot building 365 days a year 24 7 and among other things is on all the time while exposed to the weather that can range from 30F to 95F during a whole day, it would not be surprising if it does break down from time to time.


Not to mention the computer its attached to may malfunction or it may be hit by strong winds etc etc.

Thanks for the update!!

I still think it is going painfully slow, but happy that it is progressing at all.

This building should be topping out by now. This is what happens when politics, people complaing about the design and Silverstein not wanting to build it (PA toke over) for years on end. The structural steal should be finishing the top floors by now.

What the hell are you talking about? They just started this thing two years ago. And the first design was ugly and let not forget it took almost two years to clean the site up

What the hell are u talking about...? The cornerstone was laid down in July 2004 by the crony Gov Pataki, that's when construction started. Then more political bullcrap with the saftey of the base from the City.. etc etc etc... Blah blah blah. On we go.

Look they started construction in april 2006, I was in NYC all summer in 2004 and I spent alot of time at the WTC. There was no way they were doing anything, they didn't even have it cleared out. Lets just say it was nothing nice. And anyway it still wouldn't be finish by your timeline.

It started in 2004, political bullcrap haulted construction.
That's why people complain only in this thread about it taking so long... because it is.
