Looks like someone has pointed a spotlight right towards the cam. You can barely see something on the east side of the tower at the moment.

There was like zero progress today. But the new crane tower went up a bit I think.

There is much progress.. Remember 9/11? They are building all this stuff underground so less people will die if such a thing happens again. This tower will be safer, more high tech and taller. That's why it's taking so long.

Wow, you are the first person to admit this Come on, if you have no patience don't come here. There has been much progress. You think they can just start building after 9/11. They have to clean the area first, but before they did that they needed to investigate it. Then they needed to make a design (choose a design). It takes time. Be happy that there is something u/c.

Hey, guys... Do you have some problems with patience to pluralism? It looks that you hate all critical view points on the construction process...
No criticism means no democracy!

So, what's wrong with you?!.

@Bohdan Astro
It was just offtopic and bored me to discuss the pro and cons and economical feasibility of certain cranes. To be honest, I skipped most of your posts.

SSC a democracy, don't make me laugh.

Anyway, I hope that there will be some quiet weather for New York the coming weeks, all these windy days aren't really helping the construction.

Thanks for the updates.

My question (Are you really moderator here?) is just sarcasm...

I did find some new alternative to Manitowoc crawler cranes on the construction site:

Well perhaps because in every single page of the 11000 above, somebody is wining about the lack of speed?
I'm convinced that whey'll speed up when the lowest part is done and all floors are the same.
