Actually no..it has nothing to do with the governement... Why isnt there a museum for the Oklahoma city terrorist attack,why isnt there a museum for the england train station attack?? because theres nothing to show about it. I dont really think that theres something to show about 9/11 except the dead people that died and the heroes that saved the lifes. P.S sorry if u dont really understand what i mean.

I totally agree that it is a stupid idea...and a waste of Expensive land

but i think that the probable reason for this museum might be:

-->That a lot of more people died here than in any other terrorist attack in the US.
-->and the fact that the only way to shut those families up(the families of the dead) is by building them a museum because if not they would still be talking and complaning about it.
-->a way to force people to never forget this particular terrorist attack. Because if you build something on top of it, then people would easily forget what happened on 9-11 but by building a museum people will always remember how much of asshol*es the taliban/AlQaeda is...

Some new pictures from NYGuy on SSP, I'm not going to post all of them becuase I think IndiansUnite just gave us a good tour of the site on the last page.

The most important development that can be seen in many of the pictures is that they are finally taking apart the rest of Vesey Street, where there are currently Freedom Tower beams sticking out of the ground. This is the last major obstacle left before the tower can go up.

The history of this thread was so annoying. Some guy comes in and complains about how slow it is. People tell him it's because the groundworks need to be finished first. Next page, another guy comes in and complains about how slow it is. People tell him it's because the groundworks need to be finished first. Next page, the next guy comes in complaining, and so on and so on and so on.

Now the groundworks are pretty much finished and the tower is shooting up like a spring mushroom, kind of makes me want to kick all the people whining about slowness in the face...

Nasty. Is that rotting meat or what? The smaller mushrooms look like...well, that's kinda obvious.

I wonder if the north core will always lag the south core so that the cranes have a little more freedom of movement?

Thats a culture medium for growing a special kind of mushrooms, which are considered as drugs.

The reason these posts are so annoying is b/c there's nothing to talk about.
1000 pictures/comments of the same staleness--

you must be talking about the infamous molasses mushroom

Most confusing post I've read in this thread.




At least its faster than someone's molasses brain. Seems like more forms went up. I didn't realize the beams were sticking up through Vesey Street. No wonder that side's going slow. How long until that section is deconstructed?

Oh for ****'s sake, now the low-def cam is pointing at the sky.

There's no way this is a coincidence, these cams going down has to be related to security...

Or a new shameless demand for money. You'll notice that before you can access any of the three views, there's now a 30-second advertisement that plays. My guess is that they discovered that with the WTC rebuilding now finally gaining steam, there's going to be huge interest in it and they can make a fortune charging people to view the webcams (or at least cluttering them with advertisements). Think about it, the rebuilding of the World Trade Center is the highest-profile construction project in the United States now, and perhaps in the world.

There's no reason why it would be a security concern... the FT, memorial, and 4WTC are all now above ground so there's nothing that the cameras reveal that isn't obvious to anyone above ground taking pictures. Also, if it were about security, then they would have also demanded that rebuildgroundzero and howtodaylooksgroundzero take down their webcams, but no sign that that has happened. I'm guessing they're reconfiguring their website so that you have to sign up and pay to view the hi-def webcam, and in the meantime have just pointed it skyward just to be... dicks.

Maybe if you did 5 seconds of looking before you shot off your mouth you wouldn't look so stupid.
But I doubt it.

Interesting progress on the site, I'll definitely keep an eye on this, I think it's one to be one of Manhattan's most important structures.
