yes it still will be reinforce concrete

I'll make jacobchan's post sound great after this:

No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?

ummm read your answer again, you were looking at Route 9A, we were both looking at new Fulton street . From webcam it did look like they laid steel for new road and yes I was wrong.

I've had dreams about skyscrapers before, but this dream I just had was the most amazing I one can remember. I think I was on the Staten Island Ferry or some other large ship and we were heading to lower Manhattan. The Freedom Tower wasn't completed, but it was topped out; it stood much taller than the other towers, which were still under construction, but it was a little different. It had lots of steel, so much that you could hardly make out the core or floors, and the steel was blood red and in a simple latticework shape. Thing is, even though I doubt that's what it would look really like, I felt like it was real, I though I was really there and it was really there, totally forgetting or ignoring the fact that it would be two years before the building topped out. I just want to go back to that dream now because it was so damn good, that feeling. I didn't know people could have dreams with such detail, I remember seeing the WFC at certain points and all of the buildings and details that you see when approaching lower Manhattan from the south... I may be going insane. Someone tell me if I lost it. I'm still finding it hard to believe that the dream was a dream... it was devastating to realize I was really in my bed. I could have been hallucinating, I just don't know what the hell happened.

while empire state was being built, usa was in a big financial crysis. emprite state was going to be the biggest building in the world.

now, 80 years later, we have the same situation... freedom tower and chicago spiral are being built (one of the biggest in the world) and now we have a big depression...

just a comparation...

So for the next depression, if someone tries to build a 2 km skyscraper tall, begin to save your money

Well, in 80 years, in 2089, I believe that I won't have any financial problems.

you should ask the other people walking around in your dreams for money. you can then spend this money in your dream.
Once I had a dream where me and my father went up the Hancock tower in Boston, via a LADDER on the outside of the building. To get down, we had to go to the edge of the building, reach down, grab the ladder, swing our legs over the edge and start climbing down.

People have been saying IT IS part of the core for pages.

It will be wrapped in rebars then buried inside concrete for ever...

I didn't remember seeing any people, but next time I do I will. Strange dream though. Funny how you usually never realize that it's not real.
