I thought my question about the footbridge was relavant, and I think we all learned something. Some did go off on a tangent about the aging properties of copper, but it's all good.

The joys of getting off track. No new developements as far as I can tell. No new on the north core rising. Someone should go check it out for us.

Please don't include the pictures next time you reply to a picture update. That's one of the rules. Thanks.

They're pouring concrete at the FT today... I have no idea for what.

On a side note, does anyone know what they plan to do with the area to the east of the Freedom Tower once they finish pouring the concrete for the B1 level (the level they're working on now)? This is where the future Performing Arts Center will be located, but I'm sure their prints for the Performing Arts Center are nowhere near completed. Therefore I'm wondering if they'll actually continue on and pour the concrete for the lobby/auditorium level of the PAC. Basement levels are one thing, but it seems strange if they pour the street level floor without knowing what will even exist there (ie, where the holes for plumbing or stairwells or elevator pits or whatever will be located on the ground floor). Will they just put this area on hold once they finish B1? Hopefully so... it would mean they could focus more on the Freedom Tower.

Looks like they're pouring one of the basement floors in the area you're describing. My guess is that for now they'll just level it off at street level with some hookups for the new building left just below the ground so that they are available when they figure out what they're going to do. Many renders just have the area as a grass park, which I actually think would be great. With no plaza like the original WTC there needs to be an area where one can stand between the towers and look up. I'm talking short term, though, since apparently there will be a park near 5 WTC and the church whenever they are built.

EDIT: I've looked at a few renders and it looks like the area you're talking about will become a small plaza similar to the one near 7 WTC. The grass park/location of the PAC is on top of the current PATH building.

What a constructive post just joking

Anyway, could you precise where they are pouring concrete... You kinda confused me... Is it on the north core or on the performing arts center?

I'm sick of the Mets' lack of progress, but you don't see me constantly moaning about it. The person to blame for it not being rebuilt already is every person on earth.
