when the camera was pointing directly at the H&M demo i noticed them pulling many containers of dark dirt from teh site.

THey were working overnight doing it was well. It is definitely soil for the Fulton Street Base.

They still have a lot of work to do on the roof over the WFC east west Connector/North projection if they are planning on running deliveries through that road.

The construction is taking a long time - I remember looking awhile ago into this thread and the construction back then does not look as dissimilar to now.

Looks like there will be a changing of the guard at the Port Authority, New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine is losing out to the Republican candidate in the New Jersey governor’s election right now.

Durr, but some things (like a layer of dirt) have to go into place before any work can continue on top of it, even though the trees themselves won't be planted for years. They've already started working on the tree planters around 1WTC too, even though the trees won't be planted for years.

Wow you got a "facepalm" award for that post. Stop for a minute and think what you just said.

#2 that dirt have NOTHING to do with trees

#3 of course they poured cement base for trees. Duh

Not like you might expect. First, the governor of New Jersey takes office on January 20th, so Corzine will remain governor for another two and a half months. Second, the structure of the Port Authority insulates it from the biggest ramifications in state politics. The governors of New York and New Jersey each appoints six commissioners to the PANYNJ board of directors for six year terms. The board of directors then chooses the executive director who manages the Authority's day-to-day operations. Once Christie takes office, he won't get to appoint a commissioner to the Authority board until the six year term of one of the New Jersey commissioners expires. His most immediate influence will come from the governors' ability to veto the votes of the commissioners from their respective states. As governor, if Christie doesn't like how the New Jersey commissioners vote he can overrule them. From a practical standpoint, since the PANYNJ is funded through the revenues of its various operations instead of by the taxpayers and the vast majority of its decisions are practical and not controversial, Christie is unlikely to intervene very often.

how on earth did this design win ? the skyline is gonna look so weak , it just screams " you destroyed our mighty twin towers , so as consolation we built ONE tower the same height as the old ones and put a slightly longer stick on the roof ( this i hate about Bank of america tower , a glass cone that happens to get the title second tallest in nyc cause it has a stick on the roof ) . i might have liked it a little bit if they had put the freedom tower in the middle of the cluster instead of beside it .. but WHY didnt they build new TWIN towers ? i can understand if they dont rebuild them like the old ones as it would be kind of a symbolic dilemma , but didnt like 80 % of the public want them to build TWO towers ? or atleast one tower that is actually taller ( stupid sticks dont count ) has more floors and looks more impressive than the old ones ? im sorry if this is the wrong thread for this , but i was resently in new york and is just stunned over how lame this tower is ..

200 greenich street looks cool though , but i guess thats the reason some people like this project ...

probably has something to do with Yorkers being a bit proud, financial problems, and wanting SOME symbolism in the hieght. To me, they look a little symbolic, like stairs climbing
