It's right behind the yellow crane, directly left of the circle from that direction.

Would you mind also taking a pic of the west side of the Freedom Tower's lobby and west plaza... that whole area between the building and West Street? We haven't seen any pics of this area (from the pedestrian footbridge) in a long while and I'm sure a lot of progress has been made. And yeah as spectre said, it would be awesome to be able to see a picture of that last corner of the North Tower memorial. As always though, I think I speak for everyone when I say we hugely appreciate the pics.

It looks like they're pouring the concrete for that plaza level area with all the green rebar tonight. For me it's almost more entertaining watching the tower crane load up that big scooper thing, rotate it over, pour the concrete, and then repeating the process over again than it is watching TV. The rotating earthcam camera is the best... updates like twice a second.

I can't see much, but without a doubt they are working on the tower right now because I can the workers all over the lobby/street level. I forgot that they worked during the night too.

Yeah, looks like they might be pouring concrete in that area tonight. Hard to tell, we'll know for sure in the morning. They have poured concrete at night before, so that would not come as a surprise to me...

They've indeed poured a section of the lobby floor. Can't see much details on the cam at night, but you can clearly see the fresh concrete and the circle for the fountain


btw this is a direct link to the image of the cam. It should update every 15 minutes and with the zoom functions in your browser you can still see some details. Less than with the HD cam, but still sufficient.

About the HD cam. I emailed Earthcam about two weeks ago about the cam. I asked if it would come back again and if you must pay to see it. So far I haven't got a response. Did anyone else contacted Earthcam as well?

Yes it is, if you look at the plan render of the lobby it's the long tree planter running north south next to the tower. If memory serves those planters are about 6 feet deep.

It's hard to see on the renders. You have the plans, you should know. But a planter probably would have been my first guess.

And great to see the concrete poured, they got some of the actual Freedom Tower lobby as well, looks great!
