I don't think that full productivity will resume until wednesday or even thursday. Theres just so much snow, and many of the roads in lower manhattan and the nyc metropolitan area as a whole are f**cked up.

1st Post Finally!

Hey all! I'm an avid SSC user. Love it! I am a big 9/11 buff for many reasons. I am also a die-hard New Yorker! It is not often that you can witness a National Monument erected in you lifetime and this is by fare the most important in our countries short history. Yes more important than PH!

Enough about that! Look at the snowy pics... you really get a good idea of how many trees have been planted. Awesome! Cried!

Wow, some of the snow pictures look amazing, but did they damage the coccoon(sp?) thing?

I saw a few pages back but I dont recall anyone answering: why are they not cladding one of the corners of the building yet?

And also, when is the roof planned to top out? Ive heard the end of 2011, is that correct?

Yes, some optimists said end of 2011. But they also hoped for a mild winter. At the moment it doesn't look like that.

As you know they're in the 52nd floor today. That means 47 floors from here to the roof, some of them are tall mechanical floors. All this in only 54 weeks. It's possible, but there's not much wiggle room (is that the correct word? i'm not american ) for any kind of delays.

Oh well, december 2011, january 2012, who cares?!
