If they didn't dig it all up I might have to agree with you just a little.
There are always going to be bits and pieces of human remains in that soil - It was pretty recent the some construction workers found some bone fragments while working on the site.. I expect this site will be full of ghosts (lost souls). There was a journalist who claims to have photographed a ghost in the early days just after the collapse - He was underground in the subway station, and he took a pic (which I saw) that captured a giant orb - Then the jorunalist found out 2 months later, that there was a dead woman who fell onto the tracks in all the chaos that ensued after the collapsed, and she was smothered to death.

All of the debris and twisted wreckage that was removed from the site, is sitting in a dedicated landfill, and it has been said that it will take YEARS to go through the pile of remains, finding remains of people...

These may not be the biggest and tallest towers in the world, but there is more significant meaning behind the construction of this then just about anything else in the world right now. Its going to be a huge thing, when groundbreaking time comes! Hopefully I will be there...

kingsc - sorry to hear about your loss!

From what I know, they are not exactly building Fulton Street itself yet, but a temporary road to help with construction of the Freedom Tower.

OMG! OMG! Two more of the massive PERIMETER steel columns just went up along the eastern side of the Freedom Tower!

I was able to watch it live on the eartcam rotating camera too!

EDIT: Make that three. I caught the last two.

jwalas... holy crap. You've given us the greatest batch of pictures we've seen in a LONG time (not to take away from the great contributions of our other photographers), and in a very timely manner too. Typically the wtc.com or media photos are posted days or weeks after they were taken and are outdated. I especially like the ones where you were able to capture the inside of the formwork for the north core, revealing that they're not wasting any time in working on the rebar for the next jump. A million thanks!

Who said it would be lower than the WTC (I assume you mean the original towers)? The roof of the Freedom Tower will be the exact same height as the roof of the Twin Towers, but the spire on top will be taller.

Those are some great pics jwalas. With the 2 sections added this morning (they can be seen on earthcam poking up through the Vesey St. overhang) that brings the total to 16 of 24 perimeter columns 10 feet above the ground floor.

PS: those little 18 foot sctions of column weigh slightly less than 24 tons (21,800Kg)

Zensteeldude, I believe you had a picture previously showing the perimeter columns connected horizontally. I was wondering do you know at what height the perimeter columns will be before they connect them altogether?

Thanks!
