I'm not trying to disrespect the memories of anyone who died there, but eventually, we have to move on and focus on the beauty of the new project.
I totally agree

We have to stop living in the past. We Americans get so hung up on what happened here and what happened there. Just move it and build what needs to be built. If it is such an historical artifact put it at the Firehouse where those men worked, or in the woman's back yard.

Sorry to sound harsh but the whole darned place and every scrap of whatever that is there is not part of some solemn graveyard. We HAVE to move on. Either build something on that real estate or don't, but the clusterf%$k that place has become in trying to be both a modern economic hub and a cemetary is almost laughable.

The Freedom Tower Construction Video Project

Ok, I'm a huge dork and extremely bored while at work. So I started a seriously geeky project to occupy some of my time.

For those of you who don't know, the Freedom Tower construction site placed a high-res webcam that saves an image every 15 minutes:
http://www.earthcam.net/users2/inter...2&clientid=158
I decided to grab the 12:00 noon screenshot every day for the next 5 years or so. Then I'll edit them together in a time lapse movie and put it up on YouTube or something.


Here is the project so far:
You Tube


High Res Version:
Right-click to Save As

I need to find some suitable music so I'm open to any suggestions. I will update the video every few days.

Well, if that's the case, then it should probably be in that one for the entire WTC complex and not the WTC1 only.

i agree, but i like the history of it. walking in that staircase would be really cool. like i said, unless it's in the way of development then i dont see any reason to move it.

Dude, play either "The New World" by Dvorak, or "Jupiter Bringer of Jollity" by Holst.

Actually, that thread doesn't cover 1WTC. But if you want it moved there, I have no problem with it.

That's a brilliant idea! I look forward to seeing it progress! (Although we have to hope the webcam starts to look up as the towers grow!

but IT IS! its right where TOWER 2 is gonna build up!
and you also can't go inside of sth totally out of concrete and steal -except you dare david copperfield!

if you ask me they should pull that old thing away and maybe bring it into some museum or just do -what they did with the rest of the WTC-throw it on a dump

I need to find some suitable music so I'm open to any suggestions. I will update the video every few days.
Just a few notes on the project:

- I was originally going to do 3-5 frames per day, but the moving shadows from the surrounding skyscrapers ruined the video when played quickly. I settled on 1 shot per day at noon EST.
- The video runs at one frame every 0.2 seconds (5 days per second)
- When it rains, the camera gets covered in water and is useless. Because of this, there are about 5 days missing since the project began on April 13. (this worries me about the winters)
- I also tried one of night shots, but I gave up the project. I may return to it later depending on how the day one goes.

Great to see your progress video. Should be fascinating to watch when finished.

You asked for some suggestions for accompanying music? How about this (even if a bit obvious)..... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxoqzhgKReY

Or if not that, how about this.....

What happens when the tower gets too big that you cant see the construction from the cam anymore? Just end it there?
