Well i belive the United States as a whole has the obligation to finish something at least before September 11 2011, i don't think the memorial is going to be a nice place if its going to be next to the FT still under construction (which at the current rate i'll die before they finish it).

Hey, maybe it’s good they're NOT on right now. Than we don't have to sit here looking at nothing getting done. At least they'll be closer to starting above ground construction when the cams do come back.

I think we're still 2-3 months away from that happening.

Well, you cant really blame them. Think about all the red tape that would have to be processed in order to build at a terrorist site.

The reason why it's progressing at its current rate is mostly location. Soon it will be rising at the rate of any normal skyscraper that just had all below grade work finished. Had the tower remained at the location it was supposed to be built at, it would likely be close to topping out now and I don't think the first footprints were over the tracks.

Look at WTC Tower 4. I highly doubt there's many other skyscrapers rising faster then WTC Tower 4. If it were being built on the Freedom Tower's site, it would be quite slow.
With the way things are going, it seems likely that Tower 4 and Tower 1 will be entering the skyline at the same time.

Strangely enough Earthcam went down for over a week right around this time last year as well.

Unfortunately NYC residents like this self are blind to the effects that politics and unions are having on the FT project (and many others in your city). You've been putting up with it so long you don't really see what's happening. While all of your politicians want you to believe the slow rate of construction is due to the PATH tracks under the building, that's just a fallacy. If it was being built by private industry they would've found a way to work around the interference. They couldn't afford to take all the time that is presently being taken. The old saying that "time is money" is certainly true in the construction industry.

You keep harping on Unions, for which reason I don't know. Considering that almost every large skyscraper built in NYC (including WTC 4) using union workers, I don't see how it is relevant.

Yeah, what is with that? It's not going to free anymore? Speaking of which, it's weird that both webcams are down at once. Is this for security reasons, perhaps?
