I'm sorry, but everybody says "It is taking so long," do you think that your individual remark is going to do anything? Are you getting anywhere? Hasn't everybody else already posted that; are you saying something new? NO, SO SHUTUP



just kidding,

no but actually, stop

No, I saw the film. I am the source. It appears at the end of the film. I linked IMDB to show you that the sentence appears. But If you don't trust me go and see the film. You are going to enjoy it a lot anyway.

Does anyone know what the South Mezzanine in the transportation hub is? Isn't there only one mezzanine in the hub (the one east of the North Tower pool and west of Greenwich Street, which caused so much controversy about whether it should be column-free or not)? I figured it would end (to the south) at the point where the South Tower pool sits. So, uh, what is the south mezzanine???

Another great photo from PA. They have several previous photos from past months from this angle. Great progress being made. God I wish they had a webcam from this angle!

They also didn't have safety regulations during the Great Depression, much like they don't in China or Dubai today:

According to official estimates, five workers died building the ESB, and the real tally was probably higher. If the choice is between faster construction and workers' lives, I would hope that everyone would choose the workers' lives.

Fantastic photo! PANYNJ also released their first quarterly report, which details the milestones accomplished during the fourth quarter of 2008:

I thought that 14 people died building the Empire State Building, and that before construction started, it was estimated that for each floor completed, one person would die.

Five is the official number, but I wouldn't be surprised if the "real" number was 14. I believe I've also heard that estimate about one per floor.
