It's good to see the progress beginning to take shape as the construction workers have doubled their efforts!

Each time I have been to NYC after 9/11 I have visited Ground Zero... so now you can't imagine how happy I am to see FT rising...!!!

NYC Skyline rocks... and when FT and the rest of the complex is completed it will rock even more...

Great shots Jwalas, I thought they put up a section of main column n the west side and your pics confirm it.

Looks like they are getting ready to place more erecting steel on the south core half.

When does the tower approximately rise above the ground level?

As jwalas's photos show, it's already well above ground level. However, it'll really start rising this fall.

This question annoys me. Look carefully at the photos, dude! It is already above ground level.
