[QUOTE=boss-ton;52348355] Speaking of new jersey and the twin towers a little bit of history behind the two.....The port authority is in charge of new york and new jersey. New jersey didnt want the port authority to spend the 350 million on the twin towers in new york and not have any of that money benefit new jersey since it was both of their money. Therefore the site of the twins was moved to the new jersey side of lower manhattan and that allowed them to reconstruct the hudson and manhattan subway system that was on the future wtc site but was not working. It cost 70 million to rebuild the subway so both sides were getting some of the money and at the same time now new jersey had a tunnel to the new most important part of manhattan. That is what made new jersey agree to let the port authority build the twins towers and why they were in that location.

Firstly there is no Jersey side of Manhattan. And the WTC was alway going to be in Lower Manhattan. The PA took over Jersey's Hudson and Manhattan railroad which became PATH, that's how NY got NJ to agree to let them build the WTC. And most of the money the PA makes comes from NY. They run both of our airports and you don't pay a toll when you go to Jersey but if you want come to NYC you gotta pay, need I say more.

There not building the city towers , its going to be a private mixed use building. The PA let them build on the Land.

the new jersey side aka the side facing new jersey u idiot that just needs to throw in your wrong 2 cents. Also I never said it wasnt going to be in lower manhattan I said thats why its at that site in lower manhattan and not at a different one because they had to find a site to locate in the beginning and ended up moving all of those radio businesses.

Awesome! Great progress, but is it me or does it look strangely thin for as tall as it will be?

Not the OP, but attempting to answer anyway:

1. Probably a helicopter, as there are really no buildings in proximity to Ground Zero right now that are tall enough to offer that kind of vantage point.

2. I don't know if anything is being built on the site right now, but I do know that they just got done a little while back with the demolition of Fiterman Hall, which used to stand on the site and was damaged along with the old WTC7 building on 9/11.

Groundbreaking for the new Fiterman Hall was in January. It has begun construction. A picture here from lowermanhattan.info.

That is too short building for downtown Manhattan. I wish they would build taller than this.

mindgoessnap, I see tall tower shade on the right of this picture. I think that person who took this picture must be top of this tower.

The completion dates in this picture I found may not be accurate as they vary and change, so if wrong I do apologize in advance for that.

Here is a layout of which building goes where:
