That isn't for the memorial. Thats for the PATH Concourse for the new PATH Station.

My guess for this is that it is somewhere west of the 1 box, so you probably won't be able to see it from the webcam.

They finally started the decking of the southwest corner of the memorial, after the steel was already laying there for ages...

Thanks for the pics. I'm going to try to make a trip to NYC later this month.

If one more person makes a comment about how long it's taking to build this, I am going to scream.

hey everyone, sorry if this has already been posted in other posts but i noticed in different renders some different things for the memorial, are they going to fill the old foundations with water or leave them empty or are they going to have some sort of waterfall from the edges of a fountain in the centre and are they going to be lit up and project the verticle columns of light? would be nice to have waterfall and vertical column of light.

Look at the renders on the first page, they are building a waterfall on both pools. But I have no information about the lighting of the memorial. But of course that would be very cool too.

I assume you mean by the end of 2010. Probably.

1WTC won't be that tall. The 50th floor is around ~600 feet high. So it'll be shorter than 7WTC. It'll probably just eclipse some of the shorter WFC buildings. The line on 4WTC seems as good a guess as anyones.
