I'm pretty sure that two tower cranes were supposed to be erected. From the perspective of the cam, I wonder if the tower crane there now is on the dead center of the core, or if it's on a corner of the central core, which would make much more sense.

I know......I have never seen a crane that long before. Maybe the core of the Freedom Tower is larger than we thought

I think they wanted bigger cranes just to show off that WTC complex is getting rebuilt whether people likes it or not. However, I'm very happy that new WTC complex is getting built!

Close. The outline of the building extends further south t othat brown beam next to the grey building. the core is also slightly bigger as the building extends further to the right in the picture. But more or less its correct.

That may be right, but I'm not sure. I, too, would like to know exactly where this crane is positioned on the core and the size of the core.

the core is going to be bigger than the whats been started, im sure. but that is the beginning of the core. In the old WTC, the core (steel core) was so massive that it had 4 kangaroo cranes on each corner./ pics of those in the ssp thread on this tower. This might be built in the same way. if so, then this would be 1/4 of the core with its own crane
