Tomorrow it's Saturday so tropical storm Hanna won't cause much delay. Dunno how much rain is predicted for NY but both bathtubs could become real bathtubs for once
Let's hope all the water is pumped out by Monday.

It looks like some steel and the concrete core are already at street level or just a tiny bit above, but for the floor plates, who knows when.

i live in NYC only 8 hours away so i visit relatively often about once a year, and i went there when there was one steel beam in the ground in 2006, to just august, where the steel core was at ground level, the progress is amazing

You live in the city, but are 8 hours away??? That is a real thinker. I don't know if that is what you meant to say, but sometimes the broken english on this site really disturbs me. I want to see what you guys have to say, but I don't like having to decode your posts. Please try and proofread your posts to make sure they make sense.

No problem, backupcoolmen. I wasn't trying to single you out. I felt the need to post because I had seen a lot of unclear posts in recent days.

That's not the Freedom Tower, that's the Memorial Park.

I think what fish was trying to say was: "Since is not part of Freedom Tower (1WTC) then why are pictures of it posted here?"

Everyone gets bashed for posting off topic information here and the memorial is off topic for this thread.
