That new crane is coming. New updates provided by the port authority.
http://www.panynj.gov/wtcprogress/pd...Newsletter.pdf
World Trade Center Progress
June 2010
One WTC Update
Built With Their Hands

• The innovative “cocoon” system, a safety feature
that protects the workers and public at
ground level from materials that may accidentally
fall from construction floors, envelopes the
building on all four sides.

More than 6,000 pieces of superstructure steel
have been installed to date
. Concrete work has
significantly accelerated.
The number of workers laboring daily to build
the tower, already in the hundreds, is increasing

as more trades are mobilized.

Preparation is under way for material hoists to
the top of the tower
. Large elevators will be installed
on the east and west sides of the building
;
some will carry workers to the top, while others
will be reserved for materials and equipment.

Fuel cells will be delivered to the site in early
summer.
Fuel cells are essentially boxes that take
liquid natural gas and, through a chemical reaction,
release electricity and heat (for hot water)
that will be used in the finished building.

A new climbing crawler crane is scheduled to
arrive over the summer.

LOL, do a Google search for "climbing crawler crane ". 2 hits ! The PA website and SSP.

OK, 3 hits, this forum is the third.

Someone at the PA has no idea what they are typing about. I'm pretty sure they are referring to an external climbing crane, something like the two tower cranes but designed to climb the outside of the structure.

I agree Bob, that's exactly what I said to myself...this site might be full of other treasures and is very likely to be hollowed for days before construction works resume, a bit like with 20 Fenchurch Street in London...

The PA retained a company to remove, record and preserve anything found during construction. This very interesting find well not slow things down.

PS: A Budwiser can from 1967 doesn't count.

They should build the roof to 1776 feet, and the spire should go another 155 feet or whatever the measure is, to denote the year the ESB was built. Prolly too late to change anything now. :p

I have a connection, one of the head engineers of the complex. Next time I'm in New York, I'll see if he can get me onsite, maybe even in the tower itself. I'll definitely make sure to bring my camera if that happens.

In the meantime, they've added quite a bit of steel since I was last here. The tower's really starting to pick up the pace. I wouldn't be surprised if they were only a few floors behind their timeline for the year when 2011 starts (if that makes sense).

Just make sure you keep that camera hidden. The Port Authority strictly forbids unauthorized photography from inside the site and will probably confiscate your camera if they catch you.

Duly noted. I'd have to remember to bring my Coolpix to the site instead of my DSLR. I can understand why they don't want cameras on site: security, etc.

Ah, I'm a quarter Irish! I got luck in me veins. Luckily, I have some experience getting stuff past security and sneaking cameras places, so it wouldn't be too hard. Just don't expect any masterpieces since they'd most likely be shot through a hole in my jacket pocket.

Maybe in your opinion, since ESB will no longer carry the title, however i think the spire would be too tall for 1971, 195 feet, would throw off the visual balance of the building a bit.

You do understand its being built to replace the twin towers not ESB. And the height is perfect where it is, that my opinion. If they build a new ESB then it can be 1931 feet tall.
