Thank you for the GREAT pictures Onn! Without the HD cam I usually feel lost, but your close up pictures make me smile again.

I have a question about the two giant cranes: Once the jumbo columns are finished on the west side, and the entire '3rd floor' is completed, will they be used or needed any more? All the pieces from that point up should be tower crane capable? Are there other uses on site for these oversized monsters?

I think they'll stay because there will be more big vertical beams to place up on those they placing right now...For the 4th, 5th, etc. floor...That's what east crane doing...I guess the same is going to be on the west side...

More WTC Arbitration This Week
by Matthew Schuerman
October 12, 2009

Another round of arbitration begins this week in the fight over the World Trade Center site. This time, developer Larry Silverstein is arguing he's getting financially hurt by the Port Authority's delays.

Silverstein took the issue to binding arbitration this summer after he failed to convince the Port Authority and Governor David Paterson to guarantee the loans he needs to build office towers at ground zero.

Silverstein says delays on the publicly funded parts of the site, such as the PATH terminal, are making it harder for him to attract private financing for the buildings. And if he doesn't finish all three of his towers by the years 2013 and 2014, he'll be forced to forfeit them entirely under the terms of his lease with the Port Authority.

The hearings will take two to three weeks. The panel isn't expected to rule until November or December

God, I hope so!

On a side note, looks like they putt up another jubmo column today, rounding out that corner. And they're starting work on the next mechincal floor on the east side.

I think you mean the east side, unless you're talking about the new column.

Seeing all this progress really excites me. I just wish the HD cam still wasn't down. :l

The HD cam goes down from time to time, that's a fact of life. You can't look at the archives anymore, but there was a period of time when all the cams were down for about four months. It'll be back.

I figured it'd be back, just I'm impatient when it comes to wiredny. I guess most of the action is happening on the west side, anyway.

Impatient with wiredny? They have nothing to do with the webcam and many of the good photo updates are originally posted there.

I was referring to the latter. I like instant gratification, lol.
