If Larry Silverstein is getting financially hurt by the Port Authority then he should sue them for that. Port Authoity is the main reason why we witnessed so many delays. They should be punished for that!

By the way, awesome updates! I can see a lot of process within a week already!!!

That photo with the perimeter finally visible next to the old tower outline gives a good perspective.
I'm going to miss folks coming in , looking at the core and saying they can't believe how skinny the new building is.

Great pic, but it really raises a lot of questions that are extremely puzzling. Does anyone know what those silver pipes sticking up through the rebar are for? There's nothing in the rendering of the west plaza indicating anything of significane in those areas... just a flat surface. Also, is that a planter in the middle of the pic? The renderings show that that's right where the stairs will be... what would a tree planter be doing right there??

EDIT: Oh wait, I think I know what those silver poles are for. Handrails! Or, the holes in the ground that they will anchor into.

EDIT #2: On second thought, no, that wouldn't really make sense. There would be no need to handrails so close to the fountain. Also wouldn't explain where there would be three right beside each other. Damn, what the heck are these things for??? Zen?!

There will be a small fountain (or pool or something like that) on that side...So I think those things are just the pipes for that fountain...

I was there when they threaded the rebar through the area on the left of that last photo ^... Some stupid chick asked why they have painted rebar, giving all of the valid reasons to have rebar coated, i also said, "yea, it's taking a long time to do". She then said "well there you go, thats the real reason". Standing on the pedestrian overpass, you can sure run into some weird people.

Most people standing up there near the vessey st/vz building side have no idea that whole area is over train tracks active 24/7.

Well we've got a new angle from the rebuildgroundzero website. At least we'll be able to see the NW corner column installation.



Though I hate not being able to see the rest of the WTC site.

Not 100% WTC1 related, but there is another humangous crane on the soutwest corner of the site. Anyone know why?

Back on topic: I noticed (low def cam) that the core forms haven't moved in quite a while. I think I expected to see them up to tower crane level at least by now. Shouldn't a crew be working on the core at the same time as others on the steel?

About that crane...It's there because they finishing that corner...

And about the core forms...We'll probably see them going up after they finish that NW corner of the base and core steel continue to grow...
