I think the tarp pretty much signifies that that portion of the core is ready to be poured. However the western part of the core still appears to have some work that needs to be done.

Oh, boy. I can't believe what I just saw. I was watching 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue on MSNBC when they began doing a long story on, get this...

Rebuilding the Twin Towers

That's right, folks. With the Freedom Tower already well above street level, a huge portion of the memorial park already built, and the foundation for Tower 4 laid out, this moronic host began saying something like, "With the beaurocratic slow-down in the rebuilding of the World Trade Center, one group just might have a solution to the nightmare, a group advocating the rebuilding of the Twin Towers." They then had an interview with a guy from, I assume, the Twin Towers II Alliance or one of those groups, who claimed that rebuilding the Twin Towers was still possible and it would, somehow, result in the completion of the site much sooner.

That's right, folks. This douchebag actually claims that spending months dismantling the steel in the memorial park and demolishing the portion of the Freedom Tower already built, throwing out the designs for all 4 towers and start from scratch in a multi-year long design period for the new towers plus smaller buildings and memorial, and then being forced to find new money would somehow cause the project to be completed FASTER. When will you TTII people learn to accept what is being built?

Forgot to mention, they said there was going to be a part two about the Twin Towers II on tomorrow's show, where they talk to some of the 9/11 victims family members about what they think of the Twin Towers II. For those of you in the U.S., that would be 6:00 eastern time on MSNBC.

Seriously how can anyone be that ignorant. I can't believe a major news network would even devote time and money for such a worthless story.

David Schuster has done this at least one other time that I've seen personally. Either him or someone at MSNBC has a personal vendetta against the current development, it seems.

It seems they waste plenty of time on plenty of worthless stories quite frequently. And I hate when we get repeated stories from 3 days before...

I'd rather hear about international news than how Lindsay Lohan went to rehab or whatever. But back on topic...

I can't conceive how any true American can be opposed to this construction...

Discussing MSNBC's misrepresentation of the state of the site is hardly political. Chill out.

The reporter needs to be fired. Has he seen the work going on here. In one year we went from nothing to something. I'm from New York and I'm all for the FT. I'm suck of this no nothings, talking about something they know nothing about. I've been watch this building since the ground breaking. And I can't wait to it's finish. Those to ass holes can eat a dick.

Like Nichole Gelinas has any room to talk. That hair is definately not rational or attractive. Seriously, you're on National Television. Try making yourself look presentable, not like you just came out of a f**k session in the janitor's closet.

Do these two have any idea that they're mocking world renowned architects who have put a great deal of serious effort into these tower designs?


Anyways, thanks for the visual update webeagle12. I look forward to seeing construction, as planned, continue.
