One more thing, I did see them pouring concrete somewhere inside 1WTC earlier this morning (probably the core), so at least work is continuing on the inside of the building. They probably have to have the core reinforcement up to a certain height before they can continue building the upper floors anyway so they probably wouldn't be building out the upper floors even if it weren't raining this week.

I actually have that book....although it has been a while since I read it. Good read though.

The podium of 3WTC takes up that spot.

Nice video on the memorial by NBC...

http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local...-84661137.html

It's short, but gives a lot of new views of the construction. It also looks like the video must have been shot within the last 2 weeks, and focuses on WHAT HAS been built, instead of focusing on the muddy pit in one corner of the site and deliberately avoiding showing 1WTC or the memorial like that 60 Minutes piece.

Maybe another smaller building could be built there, possibly there return of the Marriott WTC, could name it 6WTC. Then when you think about it, there will be a building for each No. from 1WTC to 7WTC. One World Trade Center "Freedom Tower", Two World Trade Center "200 Greenwich Street", Three World Trade Center "175 Greenwich Street", Four World Trade Center "150 Greenwich Street", Five World Trade Center "130 Liberty Street", Six World Trade Center Marriott Hotel "Next to 175 Greenwich street", and Seven World Trade Center. Then you have the performing arts center of course next to One World Trade Center Plaza.

Time will tell.......
There isn't room there. 3 WTC is just set back from the street about 10 floors up instead of rising straight into the sky.

Oops another page it's been covered.

I think the Performing Arts Center will be called WTC6. Sure, it's not an office building, but the Marriott Hotel wasn't an office building either and was still called WTC3.

I forgot about the PAC. That's a more logical 6WTC. But I'd rather it be a future tower.

Speaking of Marriott Hotel... Is there any chance Marriott Hotel will return to Ground Zero?

There are no current plans, no. And due to the difficulty of finding funds to get the ones that are already planned and designed actually built, I wouldn't look forward to it happening ANYTIME soon. However, I am holding out hope that eventually they will build a hotel directly south (across Liberty street) from where the original Marriott stood, on the plot of land next to the proposed 5WTC (and north of 90 West Street).

The plot of land is too small for an office tower, but hotels typically have a much smaller footprint (look at the Millenium Hilton). The plot of land is big enough to allow for a podium 104' x 208' wide (shaped sorta like the footprint of the new 7WTC), with 20' wide sidewalk on the south side and north sides and a 30 foot wide sidewalk to the west side allowing for a pull-in. To the east side of the building, a park would be shared with 5WTC. A pull-in lane and security checkpoint would exist to the north, where cleared vehicles would then enter into the underground garage through a heavily reinforced section on the east side of the hotel. (Yes, I've spent a loooottttt of time thinking about this and even have diagrams for each floor. )

The weather radar looks like it's thunder-snowing in NYC. Earthcam is iced over.

Why do all you girls have to report incorrectly on the weather. We have only slush in Manhattan.
