It did not rise, but it has significantly grown! If you are denying the big progress you are blind and stupid.

I agree, but you have to realize that it is on top of the Milennium Hilton and that Earthcam has hundreds if not thousands of other webcams throughout the world. If anyone should be complaining it should be the people who are paying for the camera to be up there - and I'm sure they are. I don't know if we can access the camera's archives since they changed the layout, but it was fun to look at the roof sideways a few years back when it tipped over. Then we got a couple shots of the guy's tools and voila it was back up.

I miss the ability to search through the archives and see the progress over the years. I hope the archives will be available to us again in the future. I've been clicking on the webcam several times a day since it first went online. Now that progress has sped up considerably we're dealing with these frequent outages. I can't get upset about it because, after all, it is free. But I do hope they correct this problem ASAP. We're missing out on so much now.

Do you care? You do realise next time you come back to this thread the question may be 2 pages old, and evidence suggests you're not very good at looking two pages back when visiting threads.

It is wonderful to see so much activity at the WTC site, it's finally enjoyable to visit this thread again, after 8 years of frustration.

the earthcam shows a new picture, unfortunately not from the construction site. But hopefully this means that a technician has fixed the problem and will readjust it soon on the site.

The past 8 years were frustrating, nonetheless, were courageous years for those who lost their loved ones in the 9/11 attack to see the building rising.

Do you mean columns, like in the previous photos (those big red columns)? Any photos?

I think he means those black tower sections. They have been using them to support the boom for the 18000 while they assembled it. The boom is being raised now, they still need to assemble and attach the jib (the upper boom section that tilts independently). The pieces for that are lying on the floor there.
