Not so detailed, but it gives you the idea of how much progress has been done.

Beautiful picture. What is the official height as of today? Any timeframe when 1WTC will surpass 7WTC?

The 50th floor is built out with a height of 586ft 8in. But you can see a couple pieces of steel going as high as the 52nd floor, so that makes it overall 613ft 4in.

It needs to get to the 62nd floor (746ft 8in) to pass 7WTC (741ft). My guess is sometime in mid-February.

7WTC is hearing the Jaws theme tune as 1WTC approaches!

Steel Beam Dilivery

How do they get the large side beam up to the top floor so the roof cranes can handle them? Do the come up the outside freight elevator or what?

Thanks,
Bugs

Some photos of construction workers on 1WTC during November 2010. All photos are taken by Joe Woolhead (photographer of the World Trade Center site who works to Silverstein Prop.)

















All of the images are property of Joe Woolhead.

That dude on pic number 2 looks like the actor of Beauty and the Beast, the series from the eighties! Or, for the younger viewers, Hellboy. Ron Perlman I mean! Very very nice photos indeed.
