No, I'll think you'll find the centre of the world is actually a VERY big ball of magma

actually not, it's a huge solid steel ball. it's kept solid by the massif pressure in the middel of the earth
Thanks for the pictures Carlos! Great to see the progress.

Center of the world is a ball of iron drowned by its own gravity (Fe56). No magma there... just iron hell under high pressure

Back to level ~6378

Post #1776! Woo Hoo! God Bless America!
Thanks for those pictures. I think it's awesome to see very Very noticable progress on 1WTC. Especially near the 1776 mark for posts in this thread. I'm looking forward to seeing this rising high into the sky.

today I really felt that SOMETHING was actually happening I was very excited to see the columns covered in concrete and lots of work all over....I actually felt a little melancholy..and proud!! to be New Yorker



notice the concrete columns beyond the tall steel columns

It seems like there is more activity on the walkway and transit hub than on the FT.

I think Talb is right. That is exactly where that road will be located, not the tower, but progress is progress, and 1WTC will take shape while they finish the substructure. The complex is enough to impress the ruler of Dubai. Every detail is perfect. I think Roger's tower will be the most impressive. I just found out that the steel beams for the memorial have arrived.

I LOVE NY I can't wait to get our skyline back!!!!!!!! When ever I cross the bridge, it just doesn't look the same downtown without supertalls. I don't care that it isn't the tallest anymore. Besides, a building as tall as Burg Dubai would look silly in Manhatten. The complex as a whole will be tall enough to make downtown look amazing from any angle again. I think the new WTC will have so much more design impact than the twin towers. NYC is and always will be, such a dynamic city!!!!!!!!! I recommend a visit for everyone.
