hello,

I am very interested in this project.
I read that you can follow the project by the webcam.

Can someone give me the link for the webcam?

Thanks in advance.

Live Cam

I like cam #3 best. You can enlarge it. Or, you can also click 'High Definition' cam on left and zoom in.

Ya'll need to curb your enthusiasm, it'll be months before floors are added. The north half of the core has to catch up, the Vessey St. overhang has to come down and winter has to end.

You guys have to calm down and save it for a few more months. It seems like the other side of the core won't be going up until at least summer. But its still great to see all of the extra height and it rising so fast. I'd like to know how much taller they plan on going with that side of the core in these coming weeks. I can't wait to see pictures from street level now. Now there's NO way to miss it or say something like there's no big visible progress unless you're mentally challenged. On a side note, progress on WTC Tower 4 should be picking up even more, too; it should be above street level by September.

From earthcam pics the rising core (floors probably) looks amazing and impressive!
