No it's not exactly the same thing, even though it's likely the same cam. It's not as good as the older one because there's no archive, but superior to a jpeg you can't zoom in on.

Ask The Port Authority: 1WTC Construction
Quote:
Q. I've been following the construction of One World Trade Center and was wondering if the cores will always be built staggered as they are now, or is the south core going to wait on the north core to catch up and rise together? Also, will there be more tower cranes installed at the site? – Anthony, Scarsdale, N.Y.

A. As you may have noticed, we poured another level of the north core last week and we anticipate that the north core will catch up to the south core in August. By the end of this quarter, we expect to install steel on top of the north core and jump the north tower crane up 189 feet above street level. Ultimately, we expect there will be three tower cranes on this project.

Q. I would like to know when more of the steel core is going to be built and when we are going to start seeing the outer perimeter columns going up? – Jason, Miami, FL

A. As I mentioned in a previous inquiry, we expect to install steel above the north core during this summer, and this fall, you'll see jumbo columns being installed around the tower's perimeter.

Q. I was wondering when the actual steel perimeter will start rising? From my vantage point, it looks like there are still basement areas needing to come up to street level on the north as well as the west side. Perhaps by September? – Joseph, Cambridge, MA

A. An excellent observation, Joseph. Not all of the below-ground areas around One World Trade Center need to be completed to begin the erection of the tower's jumbo perimeter steel columns. A crawler crane will be mobilized on the recently poured southeast slab at street level to assist in the erection of the first perimeter steel columns. We expect to begin installation of these jumbo columns this fall.

Nice to get some more insights into the construction. I thought their was to be 4 cranes instead of 3. Either way I'm looking forward to seeing those perimeter steel columns climb higher.

Good question....who knows, they might be installed already. Fuel cells that would be useful for a tower of this size would have to be rather large. I think they were supposed to install them quite some time ago, they may have slipped under our radar.

I didn't take any pics today but saw a large number of trucks parked around WTC7 around 1 PM. One truck was pouring concrete inside the northern part of the site. 3 were parked on Washington St and 3 more on Barclay St.

Vesey St is almost completely demolished and the underlying steel frame can now be seen. A hydraulic breaker was working all day just doing that. I'll take some pics tomorrow.

Edit: Infact you can see a part of the frame in the pic that Onn just posted above.

I can actually make out the shape of the tower now. Thanks for the picture, Onn.

I just bought a townhouse on the beach in Keansburg (The garden spot of the western hemisphere). It's a heckofa lot further away than IndiansUnite gets to be (jealous muttering), but on a clear day I'll be able to watch the skyline rise from my window as soon as it gets a little taller.

You'll be in a much better position than I am in just another 2 weeks. I'll recede back to my upstate NJ house for a couple of weeks and then head back to my uni in the cornfields of Illinois. I won't be able to see ground zero until Thanksgiving

here's more heartburn for all of you

I got this poster of the view from the new WTC7 in my room when it opened its doors in 2006-



It's been poorly taped up and the view has changed significantly. But hey, at least I have some new WTC memorabilia.

Speaking of memorabilia, I've always wanted to ask PANYNJ if I could buy an extra netting (that covers the site) that has renders of the new WTC development. The one showing all the towers looks simply magnificent and something that can be used to cover one of my bare bedroom walls.

anyways here are some pics of a model of the Transportation Hub for those who are interested--> Clicky

Most seem to disagree with me, but I truly think the Transportation Hub is the one of the most important parts of the site. It's the part that everyone will get to interact with, top to bottom. It should be large and expensive, and the Port Authority should not pull one dime away from it.

Oh and nice poster.
