could someone take either an aerial or ground photo of the Tenhouse to put in perspective just how close that Fire Station was to the towers. I know the Deutcshe Building is gone and they are right next door. I was in NYC for the first time back in November ' 09 and the site was soooo overwhelming. My dads a firefighter in California and I'm a Fire tech student so visiting the site had different emotional meanings to us.

You mean the Deutsche Bank Building? Yes, it is gone. Good riddens.

Looks nice. The more glass is on the elevation the better it looks.

Definately! Hopefully they continue with the cladding once the north-west-side cladding is on the same level with the rest.

Not safe to operate tower cranes in 50mph gusts.

I almost had my head taken off by the hook block of a crane in winds like today. Best to just shut down and pick it up tomorrow.

The next day we spent an hour unwinding the hook block from the boom of the crane. It got wraped around about 6 times overnight.

Gusty winds and tower cranes don't work well together. It's too risky as it can topple the crane if the wind throws the load too far off balance. It also dramatically increases the risks to the iron workers trying to position the steel. Better safe than sorry. I'd much prefer to see this tower built without even one death.

Not to mention, being at 666.666666 feet is itself an omen to not rush through anything at the expense of safety.

You said it man.

It would be absolutely wonderful if no one died in the construction of this tower. ( I pray every day for everyone involved.) Too much blood has been shed on the site already.
