Does any body know the view from Tower 1 WTC looking at Tower 7 from the 58th Floor looks like, i mean with 50 feet left to surpass it I wonder it they could see the top of Tower 7 pretty closely from Tower 1 WTC.

Timeless pictures of the construction workers. Had the shots been black and white, one would have been reminded of the men that built the ESB so long ago...

Yes that's the williamsbourgh bridge. He most have thought those brown buildings was Stuyvesant House. But if you look, there in the very top picture. You can also see the 4 taller brown building in Carlos picture.

Those ones are "brackets" (don't know the specific name) that will hold the 2,000 pieces of prismatic glass. Now the base is getting fireproofing, but it will be clad until construction workers stop transporting huge materials below it.
