18000 crane will be moved to other side to assist building Transportation hub.

I wonder where they going to put a news crawler?

You are 100% correct its amazing they had to invent a way to have a glass curtain wall because that was the first one and thats why some windows popped out. Towers are just now starting to look like the hancock has for 40 years. Boston gets a lot of shit for its buildings too which is uncalled for.

New pictures by GreenwichBoy, WNY, 2-14-10. New crawler crane on Vesey Street. Anyones guess as to its job. One possibility overlooked is that it might be there to extend the Vesey St bridge down closer to 7WTC.

Must we endure the incredibly ignorant and childish comments about the length of time it's taking to build this structure ... week after week, month after month?!

Listen, people! It takes time to do this job, this has unique logistical problems and challenges that skyscrapers built elsewhere do not have. There are issues dealing with a massive and complicated underground transportation hub. This tight space has to be built around a memorial that is considered sacred ground where thousands lost their lives. There are political, insurance, and governmental challenges that must be dealt with. There are worker's unions, environmental regulations, and building codes that are more demanding than - forgive me for stating the truth - the more cheaply constructed skyscrapers in other countries.

Stop your whining and grow up. There must be a group of impatient 9 year olds here.

You're a fool if you think that little rant will help anything. People come to this site, view the first page of this thread, register to post and then leave. The best thing to do is to ignore them.

Tower 7 isn't a supertall and silverstein isn't building tower 1. Nobody cares how slow it started the speed has pick up and its no longer slow so everybody stop ya bitching. Snow storm coming in a few hours let hope it passes over.

You are right...think I'll just check in on this thread from time to time....got no patience for that type of post and no resistance to calling them out. You guys who take the time to post pics please keep them coming and thank you very much for posting them. I'll say thanks once right now and maybe check in when the tower is finished. And for the record the progress is great!!

One can really see that the corner nodes are made from solid steel in these pics from Lofter1 over at WNY.
