It looks like they're getting ready to pour the rest of the ground level concrete for the southern half of 1 WTC. From a few minutes ago:

I wonder if this is going to be a night time pour on the south side? They have been very busy laying rebar there the last two days now.

Thanks Charger. The Memorial is really shaping up - I guess at the price we'd want to be seeing something extra special. Looks like we will.

I'm really happy with the progress. Can't wait to see when work beyond the lower portion starts.

Very interesting, not sure exactly what this means yet:

This timelapse camera sits at the base of the "Survivors Stairs" and will film @sept11memorial being built around the stairs, which sit at the base of the WTC site

Very interesting indeed, here's the press release:

I wish they'd give us a shot from the time-lapse camera's perspective. I'm really interested in seeing how the Survivor's Staircase is currently positioned.

They're really going to town on that Vesey Street overhang, and now there's a concrete pump truck parked over there with the stabilizing arms set up. Late night north core pump? Hmmm.

Looking good.

And that would be nice, that's probably what the concrete pump is for. When they are going to pour exactly is another question...they may wait until the weekend.

The steel is going to be part of the core. Right now the steel is there to support the south crane. Eventually the steel will be part of the core, but incased in concrete. You might have to get creative with the diagram.

They've now extended the boom into the site, but I can't tell if it's going to pour into the core or down on the floor below. There's another pump behind the tower that I can't really make out on the webcam. IndiansUnite, you'd better get out there and find out!

Is that the Deutsche Bank Building circled in red? I'm trying to get an idea of where the camera is located. Oh wait, you wouldn't be able to see outside of the bathtub from this level/angle. (Scratches head.)

Well they have lights going and last time I checked there were more workers than usual down there for this time of day. It's hard to tell as it gets dark though...
