Maybe he/she is in the same situation as me where I'm unable to view the earthcam from my computer, so a pic every once in a while is much appreciated. Thanks.

Nice to see the that the "sphere" has returned to a location close to its original home. Last time I saw it was when it was still in the park.

Such a shame that this wasn't used a an outdoor observation deck. Would have been a great hommage to the original 2WTC and also a great experience.

the spire is staring to get a little crazy with all the broadcasting equipment. Its starting to look like the old 1 WTC's antenna. I hope those tubes are temporary.

I still yearn for the original spire.

New pictures of the WTC Site taken today. Like this it looks absolutely stunning.
It needs to be filled up quickly. I hope Foster's Two WTC design will be finally
chosen and construction will start soon as a consequence. That piece of beauty must rise.
One, Three, Four WTC, the 9/11 memorial and Liberty Park with the iconic
Koenig Sphere are shown. A bit disappointed about the latter, because since the
beginning I had hoped the Sphere would return to its original place once again.
But it seems like there is no room for that tragically.

The two missing windows are in response to some temporary window washing equipment.
The original equipment for this on the building did not work properly and will be replaced I have heard.


It looks like the Spire is finally getting its long awaited coating.


Just an amazing view in the sun and clear blue skies.






There she is.


A better wide view of the concourse level.






The Koenig Sphere standing currently in Liberty Park just across / adjacent to the WTC site

I took a little trip down the memory lane.. It was one of the defining moments of 1WTC construction history!..
And I'm so proud I made this post back then. I remember taking those screenshots straight from the live earthcam site that day, from their archives which were taken just the day before.. I really felt like I was kinda taking part to the construction process back then.. Like I was doing my own small part to finalize that cladding assembly that lasted a half a decade at least (to this one crucial part of it)..

It took awhile to find this post again and I wanted to share it again. Glad it's still there. My way of showing my appreciation to this magnificent building and its builders! And Skyscrapercity forum. The best forum online!

P.S. So this was almost four years ago.. Time flies.
