Indeed, it is nice when it's really quiet downtown and you can just take pictures in peace.

So the memorial plaza consists of the two holes shown on the pics where the old WTC once stood? Or am I mistaking? Are these towers being built around the holes? I thougt the new towers were exactly on the spot of the old ones. Someome correct me If I´m wrong!

I will try to be nice. No, there was never any serious plan to build the 'new towers exactly on the spot of the old ones'.

Next time do a little research first. Google, Bing, Yahoo, Wiki etc...

Is the corner tower crane going to stay that height long? In what phase will start to climb up?
