Do not worry about that. You can continue post new pictures of Freedom Tower construction updates here. I always enjoy to see new pictures of it. Keep it up!

The Louver wall steel goes up fast, in fact conventional bolted structural steel goes up fast. A good crew can throw up 40 beams a day (in a conventional building). With 4 cranes and 4 crews one can throw up alot of steel in a shift!

It's the 7th level but it's the 5th floor. The 4th and 6th levels are partial floors, mechanical mezzanines labeled 3M and 4M repectivly.

Man, that was as much steel put up in one day as we've seen them put in an entire month (or months).
