I know. Just imagine how it'll look when 1WTC is up and you have two of those. Or for that matter, when the entire site is done.

What's also cool is how bright the light must be to create those shadows from the fire hydrant. It's like the sun is in the north.

Great pics NYCD !

Just think for a moment, Tower One well be almost twice as high as Tower Seven when finished, not counting the Spire.

Tower Seven well look like Tower One's little sister, in about 3 years. There well be no mistaking the family resemblance.

i now just find it funny and annoyed when people say it slow now. Its like wth have you been last year, are you really that lazy to not even turn on your TV and catch up with your current events. We all know the media(TV) is slow with updates but it still show you how much has got done.

You know, I'd hate to have to be the one that has to climb all of those stairs on one of those days that the elevator isn't working. Climbing all the way up to the 5th floor and out of breath just to get a $5 Footlong.

NYC mayor urges push to rebuild ground zero

NEW YORK – New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is frustrated over the slow pace of the rebuilding effort at the World Trade Center site, saying he doesn't want to see "that hole in the ground" at ground zero a decade from now.

"It's time to stop this craziness of everything and we've just got to move forward here," he said on his weekly radio show Friday.

He urged the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which controls the property, to push ahead with the reconstruction effort now, while material and labor costs are low.

"If we don't, you're going to see me out there beating the drums every day," Bloomberg said. "I'm not going to leave this world with that hole in the ground 10 years from now."

Much work has already taken place at ground zero. Two skyscrapers, a memorial and a transit hub are already under construction. But the building of other planned towers has been stalled because of financing battles between the Port Authority and site developer Larry Silverstein.

Bloomberg laid some of the blame for the delays at the feet of the Port Authority, and urged them to either build now, "or just get out of the way."

"They cannot leave a hole in the ground down where this tragedy took place and slow development for all of southern Manhattan," he said.

"We agree with the mayor that the site should move forward ... but a public bailout is not the answer," Port spokesman Stephen Sigmund said in a statement. He said the agency would continue to work for "a rational plan."

The authority wants more private sector cash for the project than Silverstein has offered and prefers to delay construction on two of the towers until the real estate market improves.

Silverstein recently proposed ending the logjam by putting more of his own money into the project and making it more economically viable by scrapping one of its four planned skyscrapers.

Southeast connecting node in place; all nodes now installed. The last floor beams are being installed in the corner now also. Hopefully they will finish putting the beams in today and they can finish the floor steel next week.

He was referring to towers 2 and 3, which are literally holes in the ground.

Is it finally over?! THE BASE IS DONE!!!

Now let's watch this sucker shoot for the sky!

Finally, we have a date for when 60 Minutes will air their episode on the rebuilding at Ground Zero! This Sunday at 6pm, CBS. My friend at the site told me last November that they had just done some filming there. I never thought it would be three months before they finally aired it.

(Then again it takes the Port Authority a month and a half just to put together a damn progress report... still waiting on that.)
