This building requires so much patience its not even funny. I think the main reason why people here are so impatient is because they spent 3 years arguing and complaining about how and who should build this tower. Its sad because, if you think about it, this tower would be almost topped out, if everything was on schedule.


But then again, we wouuld have that hedious twisting birdcage hovering over lower manhattan So I guess it all worked out for good.


Hopefully, this building will be well on its way by the Fall.

We just gotta be patient yall.......cus no matter how much we spend our time complaining about the slow progress, its still not going to be completed for at least another 3 years

Complaining about how slow it is isn't going to make construction go any faster so people should just..go meditate in Nepal or make a Zen garden or something.

Does anyone know how do get a directory of other high res cams like this one?

http://www.earthcam.net/users2/inter...2&clientid=158

I've looked all over www.earthcam.net and all I can find are the usual lame low res things.

Was this WTC one not intended to be made public? Who first posted it here?

After reading some posts above me made me wondering how long did this building in Oklahoma City got rebuilt after bombing back in 1996 (I think)? It might be similar situation as Ground Zero but I know that Ground Zero is wayyyy much bigger than Oklahoma City Building for sure.

The Murrah Building was never rebuilt. A memorial sits on its site now.

True, but a new federal building was constructed near the old Murrah Building.

Looks like a hole with rebar in it, and lots of it to boot. Hard to tell from this angle as you cant really see it too clearly

Trust me, this tower will be at street level by january of next year. The Port Authority and the developers want this completed just as much as we do. Its just going to take PATIENCE and TIME.

Meanwhile, it looks like they are pouring lots of concrete today. What could this mean? Maybe they will be erecting tower columns soon.
