If it was up to Trump the tower would have black glass and gold trim.

Over the weekend, because there was a tropical storm coming. They didn't totally disassemble it, only partly.

EDIT: Oh, and they’re preparing to jump the north core crane too!

They did not disassemble it, they just tilted the boom/jib downwards and secured it. They do it whenever high winds are expected.

Isn't that what I said, "partly disassemble". I guess a better term would be "disengage".

Well, to be fair the entire video is from Silverstein's point of view. Richard Quest never talks to anybody from the Port Authority, nor does he really talk about the transportation hub, memorial or 1WTC. I'd bet that Silverstein agreed to do the interview so he could gain some public relations leverage over the PANYNJ in arbitration. Pretty much nobody in the public eye except Sheldon Silver, Michael Bloomberg and Silverstein himself have come out in favor of building the towers now.

How am I supposed to know, there hasn't been a crane on the site like this before. They were tying the crane down, that's what I meant. I know they didn't physically take it apart!

It amazes me how every time I look at the webcam, I think 'as easy as legos' but then I see close up pictures of the West Plaza and the scale is enormous! The amount of rebar, cement, the size of the beams...wow. This is going to be one, strong, tower.

The West Plaza has to be completed to install the 2nd creeper crane, right?
