i like ssp cause it's more in depth with projects, and it covers a lot more of them. at least for NYC anyways. but i'm not registered there cause the site doesn't accept gmail??? and i dont want to be bothered to figure out my isp internet pass

What a pessimist. I'm sure in a year there will be plenty to see.

You will see construction going on. Besides, if you come to New York you will see the newly completed New York Times tower and the nearing completion of the Bank of America building ... both super-talls.

Tom, you plan your trips very far in advance, don't you?

I see you like to travel. It's my hobby, too. Do you focus mainly on cities or do you also visit other places like national parks, natural areas, small towns, remote places too?

I have seen the US7 in April 2004. One year later the building has gone slightly over the street level. I think the same will happen with the Freedom Tower. I expect the worst and hope for the best.

BrooklynNYC: There is more to see than one construction site in New York, don`t you think so, too?

phillybud: I plan my trips very far in the future. I planned 3.5 years ago that i will go in September 2007 again to Tokyo. Now i have booked my trip.

I always stay in a very big city and but i also go outside to see the rural areas and interesting natural scenery.

Mr. Tom Green: To me the way you advertise your trips is attention-seeking and obnoxious. You are like the Lindsay Lohan of world travel. Don't come to New York if you complain, you'll probably just complain about the spires on BOA and NYT.

By September 2008, you'll see core concrete and steel framing at least 1/3 the way up from ground level, i'll bet 40 storys of core and at least 30 storys of steel framing, and thats being conservative on my part, once this tower gets to street level, its going to rise fast i'll bet on that.!!

The underground portion of this tower is special becouse it has to be built around PATH tracks, so the columns are not straight forward, there will be outrigger trusses, and load transfer trusses, and irregular column lines, (if you read blueprints you'll know what i mean,) and i'll bet most of it will be in reinforced concrete, and that takes extra time, but they know where its all going, it just takes time to put it in.

I just don`t travel there. After my trip i upload around 500 pics that i have taken during my trip. Selecting the pics, resizing, photoshopping, uploading and posting the pics on SSC costs me around 40hours of unpaid work.

All in all i have uploaded around 2500pics for free for you and the other forumers on SSC so far.
Noone pays me for that, you know, so stop to critize me.

Tom i for one enjoy your pics. I am certain you will be blown away by NYC when you do come. It is the center of the universe and is visually stunning and culturally amazing.

I usually plan my trips anywhere from 2 months to 6 months in advance, but once in a while I go on the spur of the moment ... like the time my best friend and I flew to Amsterdam for a 1 week trip about a week in advance!

In many countries the best things to see are outside the main city, for example in Jordan visiting the historic city of Petra beats Amman or Aqaba any day; the same goes for Myanmar - the big city - Yangon - is awful, but side trips to Bagan, Mandalay and Inle Lake were wonderful. Even if you are into architecture as I am, it is rewarding to get out of the big city ... another example - Cuzco, Peru to see Macchu Picchu (Lost City of the Incas), or to Agra to see the Taj Mahal.
