The memorial museum seems that will resemble a tower that has fallen on its side. Very nice, It couldnt be better than that i believe. I like it a lot.

What is that building right behind the steelworker's left shoulder? The design almost wouldn't look old if it were built today.

That's the Lincoln Building, built in 1930; 53 storeys, 673' tall.
The building obscuring the base of the Chrysler Building is the Channin Building, 1929, 56 storeys and 680'.

That specific area is for Memorial i think...

I saw yesterday the movie "Babylon A.D." Scenes from the future of New York all WTC towers have been completed, including of course WTC1 and WTC2.
That was very cool Looks so real!

Likewise, the recession may affect Tower 5, but we already knew that Tower 5 wasn't going to be completed for a long time, so who cares.

As long as the Freedom Tower and the memorial (an entire half of the site - and the MOST IMPORTANT half) are completed roughly on time, I'll be happy. And this article doesn't suggest any delays with them.

I honestly wouldn't trust man of that age to be in charge of tightening the bolts. OMG.

It's not really the PAs business. Larry is paying rent on those sites whether they have buildings or not. The only way they'll be delayed is PA gives him a new lease that excludes 2 and 3, and they don't have much incentive to do that because they'd be losing a ton of money.
