What concerns me every bit as much as the scare it put in New York citizens is the cost of the fiasco! It's not cheap to fly a 747 with F16 escort. You'd think they'd want to present a better image than spending money for a photo shoot. As demonstrated they could've just used Photoshop without ever flying the plane.

...local news here said the cost was $300,000!! Totally inexcusable in todays environment. What was the point? If Obama didn't know about this, he needs to get people under control.

You certainly can! The person who allowed this to happen is on his staff and as such anything that person does reflects on the president. Any decision they make should be the decision the president would make it not he has chosen the wrong people. He is ultimately responsible for anything done under his watch!

Don't make comparisons relative to the average citizen's yearly salary! If so, nearly the cost of any government program will make your jaw drop.

and also remember that the federal budget.. is a LOT bigger.

You know, it's sad that the original hudson terminal was lost due to 9/11. The tracks were left intact at the base of the "bathtub" when the PANYNJ took over & used a more modern loop terminal which could fit longer trains vs 3 cars.

The retaining wall holding up the subway line is where part of that old loop used to be & why they needed the wall there.

More photos later today.

I don't understand... I've been looking at this thread for a year or two now and it's always the same. What have they done and what and how many kinds of delays have there been?

Roel, please do not post my photos without proper attribution. At least instead of "Today", you should write "How Today Looks Ground Zero?".
