As ZZ-II said, it's the Empire State Building. Welding had been discovered, but a practical means of getting power up dozens of stories of structural steel hadn't yet. This photo was taken in 1930.

The ESB was mostly hot-riveted together, nowadays they would use bolts (safer and less labor intensive). Welding in the field is too unreliable for use in building and bridge structures.

They are erecting steel over the east-west pedestrian connector. They are also laying rebar around the north core.

The problems occur when construction companies disobey safety laws, which is not as common as you may think. There are safety violations in every country.

That sucks. Earthcam also has an uncanny knack for going down when truly interesting things happen.

Than why was it that the new buildings collapsed during the Sichuan earthquake last year, why the old buildings made it through with minor or no damage?

Great shot, webeagle! We watch all of these webcams that take in the whole site, and it takes a shot like that to reinforce the massive scale of this project.

That picture of the ESB was taking in the 1930's. There are no pictures of ESB before 1930. Excavation of the site began on January 22, 1930 and the building opened May 1 1931. 16 months after it stated

It's not the final Fulton Street, it's a temporary construction road that will be used for hauling in steel for the memorial:

TRAFFIC ADVISORY - NORTHBOUND RIGHT LANE ON WEST STREET TO BE CLOSED SATURDAY TO FURTHER ONGOING WTC SITE CONSTRUCTION

Date: Jan 16, 2009

Press Release Number: 9


The northbound right lane on West Street between Albany and Vesey streets will be temporarily closed on Saturday, January 17, to further ongoing construction at the World Trade Center site.

The temporary closing of the northbound right lane on West Street will allow the existing World Trade Center perimeter fence to be extended westward to allow the development of an internal construction road that will allow trucks to deliver steel for the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.

The work will be done between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. tomorrow, January 17. Motorists may encounter slight traffic delays due to the lane closing.

The lane closing is part of a cooperative effort between the Port Authority, New York State Department of Transportation and New York City Department of Transportation all working together to advance Lower Manhattan construction.
