It seems that the pouring of the core is almost done. They only need to dig out a bit more of the core on the closer side of the cranes, but its very little. It also seems theres rebar sticking out from the farside of the core.

I'm confused about this construction process. I just looked at cam of Ground Zero. I can't see anything active with the core and this time they won't let me zoom closer to that site so I can see better... I thought Freedom Tower will have two more cranes before they start to rise? I am not sure exactly where the core located at. Is that where two cranes sit on it?

You can't see anything active cause the camera does not show that much detail.

The cranes are in the middle of the core and the building ends at the last beam before the driveway into the site (that other skinny beam is for something else).

They should have named the new WTC buildings starting with "8 WTC," so as not to confuse them with the originals...it would also honor the originals in that way.

The 1 and 9 subways, as well as the cross-Hudson PATH line, were all reopened fairly quickly. Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that the subway was back in service in late 2002.

You can see the 'tunnels' snaking through the pit in the aerial images.

Yeah That's what I was saying. I wish there has to have better cam that will show everything so I can understand better with the construction process. Thanks!

From this point on, there will be no more debates about the Twin Towers. This thread is purely for discussion of the current project.

Yes, we shouldn't be focused on what was, and should be focused on what will be.
