Sounds like somebody from New York is a little jealous that another city is getting a building that actually looks good instead of boxes with an antenna stuck on top to make it tall!

Well, things are very different now. Just click where it says "thread tools" in the top of each page, then click "subscribe to thread". On the next page you have a choice of how you want to receive notification! It's very easy to do and avoids all the mail from active threads.

Where's the traffic? This shot looks like one of those movies where everyone in the world has died. Hardly any signs of life at all!!

When taking HDR shots I try to avoid vehicles ( the pano is HDR, but the overview was also part of an HDR set, just looked better stratight ). It is not hard to get no vehicles, or many vehicles, as there is a stop light just south of the bend (top of picture).

Would one of the moderators please close this thread again and just reopen it when new information is available. We've seen nothing but dumb comments and complete jerks posting in this thread (except Harry) since it's been reopened and really no new information has been posted.

Does the ice forming inside the ring indicate a problem? Looks like there's water leaking through the concrete to form those stalactites.

Someone checked the propane tank, and several sites in the park ( sump wells and/or radiation collectors/sensors ).

There may have been more but those are the tracks I saw.

nationalizing a bank is not bad news......its still a business whose purpose is to lend money. Dexia and Fortis of Belgium/Holland (two huge European banks) have been fully nationalized, and they're not going to be wound down or shut. Am sure there will be a review of the lending portfolio at Anglo Irish, but that doesn't necessarily mean they'll pull the plug. If they've actually signed Loan Agreements that commitment them to development financing, the developer can sue for a substantial amount if the bank walk away.
