Thanks for the pics. I always knew this will be a very handsome building and a fine addition to the New York skyline.

Nexis, thanks for the New Jersey pics.....It gives a bit of idea from afar.....not too afar.......but outside New York this building is starting to show itself : )
........I remember back in 2007 sitting near the centre of your pics in Lower Manhattan on the Hudson River near the WTC site on a warm September evening looking across to New Jersey seeing an illuminated clock and fire works.......so I know your there : ).....from an Australian's perspective.....

Nice location. Now 1WTC is getting taller, pics from further out are becoming more interesting as it becomes a part of the skyline.

Was to be expected, now that they are no longer working on the part that's designed to withstand the moon crashing into the Earth.

They've got a shot at being around the 38th-40th floor by the next 9/11 anniversary.

Actually, the street level platform over the PATH tunnel has to be as strong as possible, and it isn't complete yet, they simply completed it enough to allow things around the site to speed up a bit.
