Yes,

I suspended a few accounts for a certain amount of days and some forumers got a warning. I think I recently posted a warning in this topic for forumers going offtopic. Ignore me, fine. But it will have consequences.

People never learn not to derail threads with useless unrelated topics!

Back on Topic:

I think this building will be in the list for most beautiful landmarks. So far we have seen amazing progress. When do we expect to see progress on levels above the V columns to commence?

I hate quoting picture but since you already have it market. The red beams circled aren't laying there. They've already been set in place since there pretty much in the air.

There are many steel pieces in that floor on WTC1; but the steel column (green arrow) looks more a horizontal one

The 50th floor is about ~600 ft high. So it won't quite reach 7WTC.

There's what seems to be a very large piece of steel near the SE corner, sitting on the crane track.

Looking at the pictures you guys are posting, I had no idea this would be so close to the buildings across the street. Incredible progress is being made.

Someone else had mentioned the same thing but there is a street between the two buildings and I'm thinking it might just appear that way due to the angle of the photo. I'm also happy to see that suddenly we can see a building rising after so much delay but I agree that the progress has picked up significantly. It's not all that exciting to watch photos of the prep work because you really don't see anything taking shape.

No, I noticed the street. I definitely noticed it because I've walked up and down it a few times. And yes, it may just be prep work, but it's prep work on America's biggest skyscraper project and it's prep work on a building that has much more meaning than just a regular glass and steel skyscraper.

I dont know dude but sometimes i dont think we should justify the long period of time the Prep work took because of past history of this place...i think it was a slow process under all terms and that basing the speed on the significance of the building is just not right.

I mean, the Burj Dubai (Burj Khalifa) was so significant in its own way and was such an important milestone for Dubai and the rest of the world, but it didnt take that long to be topped out...

Does anybody else share my thoughs, agree, disagree?

p.s: am not trying to start some conflict here, just showing off some of my thoughts...I love New York, my City!!!

Hopefully they are just changing the length of the boom, or performing maintenance or an inspection.
