I want a twin of Freedom tower, instead of 3WTC. I think, it could be nice. Third tower is nice too. Simply 2 identical towers to see more habitual.

Love that pictures too! I admire these constructors for their courage to walk on the beams without any protection. I couldn't do it myself.

In Spain (and I am sure that in United States too, a more serious country than mine), you have to wear a safety harness. I can't see where his harness is attached to. (Perhaps I can't see it due to the angle of the photo).

See the red safty line draped along the beam ? It may be hard to see in the pic but she is tied off.

And yes I think it's important because there are many accidents in the building industry. Accidents also often causes delays...

I was surprised to see them walking around like that without any safety measures. Good to know they are tied to that red safety cord.

They got it wrong, I have seen her on other job sites, she is most assuredly a she and very good at her job, a credit to her trade and all Local 40 members.

I assure you, she can kick your ass.
