Simply wow ... amazing how well the two completely different structures blend together. Minoru Yamasaki was a great architect.

There is nothing like seeing the same huge image 3 times on the same page.

Does earthcam have cameras that show the side of the site where towers 3&4 are? I thought they did but I just cannot find those damn links!

DOUBLE TALK ON GROUND ZERO

January 24, 2008 -- The former Deutsche Bank building at Ground Zero has stood for years as a monument to bureaucratic bungling - but could finally be coming down!

. . . Sometime this year.

That is, if one is to believe Lower Manhattan Development Corp. Chairman Avi Schick, who took heat at the City Council yesterday over the LMDC's continued inability to bring down the building - which was grievously damaged on 9/11, and in August was the site of a hellish blaze that killed two firefighters.

Schick got a much-deserved tongue-lashing from Councilman Peter Vallone (D-Queens) after first insisting that any timetable for the building's demolition wouldn't be "productive" at this point.

Maybe not from his perspective. No timetable, after all, means no benchmark for progress - and no standard against which to gauge blame.

No wonder that Schick was soon back to his original plan: asking the council, in essence, to simply accept his assurances that all concerned are "committed" to getting the building down quickly.

Whatever the hell that means.

Indeed, Schick wouldn't (couldn't?) even say what precise steps are still needed before the LMDC gets the all-clear to resume work.

And that's especially odd, given that subcontractor LVI Services says it hopes to restart preliminary deconstruction work by Monday.

Bottom line: Schick's dodgy testimony inspires little confidence that further delays aren't in the wings.

More candor, please.

Good question. I remember reading that 130 Liberty was preventing progress with the secure entrance to the underground parking for the whole complex.

New Foundations, because of the underground garage that needs to be built into the basement.

To make the new WTC, we have 7 WTC, the Freedom Tower (1 WTC), 2 WTC, 3 WTC, 4 WTC, a screwed-up 5 WTC. But we do not have a 6 WTC. You can't have a new WTC without a Building 6.

Waah! Eveything is RUINED, just because there's no 6WTC!

Oh wait! Yay! This is 6WTC, just use your imagination:
