You can see the cranes looking down 6th Ave in the Village now. Shouldn't be too long before you can see steel over the top of the Barclay-Vesey, also =]

Either left the way it was so that they could lift it to install equipment in the mechanical floors or a simple foul-up. Either way, it is over and done with.

E: my apologies for a double post.

That's another crane deck, for bringing in material or equipment lifted by a crane.

It was just an "OHSHIT!!", either the tube was too short or, probably, too long. They fixed it, moving right along now. (The technical term for it is a "girt") it's just there to support the cladding. (It's an 18"x12"x 5/8" rectangular tube.)

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Actually, it's none of the things you guessed, I just don't want to say what it's for. It's nothing super top secret, like the **** or the *****.

I recently saw a floor plan for the building posted on one of the popular websites, and it had detail of the core - bathrooms, the bump-out, etc. Of course, I didn't save it and now I can't find it anywhere. It may have been in one of the recent news reports.

If I remember right, it said the bump out was either the fan room or an area for an emergency generator. I'm going to drive myself nuts trying to find that plan online.

Heck, maybe it was one you posted and then deleted soon after.

I'm very passionate to see the construction completed before the deadline. Does anybody have a detailed video of the renderings?

Tomorrow is a federal holiday. I doubt we'll see any new steel.

Awhile back, someone posted a photoshop of what OWTC would look like at 38 floors. Turned out to be pretty accurate.

Pictures for website!

Someone new york willing to take pictures of this beautiful construction every week from January 2011 to a website I'm building.
In contrast, and depending on the profits of the site gets a share of advertising.
The photos must have excellent qualities and resolutions up to 1000px.
Anyone?
