Just Started a job at 1 Liberty Pl, on the 22nd floor. So I figured I'd take a few pix on my camera, come to find out my camera is in North Carolina from the last time I visited Charlotte, sitting in my freaking car. So here are blackberry pix






I am always amazed by the scale of the massive footprints of WTC. Its amazing to see people working on it from 1 Liberty. I wish I could have been lucky enough to gaze upon the real things from my window instead of this big hole in the ground :-(.

Here in the night views the 1wtc is gaining its namesake

Note all the colors: Red, White and Blue

lights in the stairwell appear like the stars on the flag

With the red columns and white lights then we have the picture

I noticed that the equipments and materials being used on the construction seems different. The cranes are well-painted so as the the steel bars and everything else. The construction seems to be special. I know this is a very significant building but does the construction must be special?

I am not surprise if the construction workers, contractors and engineers are special too. They are probably the best the world can offer or relatives / friends of the victims.

I am hoping at the end this will be significant to all New Yorkers and to all the people around the world especially to the victims of the strategy.

Looks like the next level of core steel is up on the 'roof' ready to install around the tower cranes. This will mark the first jump in height in a long time! Exciting!

Of course I could be wrong, and it's just more connecting beams for the current top level. We are so close to seeing significant upward progress....

The 2 big crawlers are both brand new so the paint is still nice and shiny.

Yes, I agree that is probably easier to build in a dry, open area, then in the middle of downtown New York City, but the progress is kinda slow here. I have a picture of the construction progress from back in February and I'm looking at the recent ones, and it has only moved up a few floors and widened a bit. That is not commensurate with 9 months worth of time. Even on a difficult site.

1WTC is a government office building. Their is no incentive for it to be completed quickly. At least not in the eyes of those in charge of building it. It gets done when it gets done.
