There is a hazard now of cranes hitting each other, so till the new big boy is completed don't expect a huge amount of stuff to happen quickly on tower 4.

NYC revokes permits for 2 ground zero cranes

New York City has revoked work permits for two cranes at the World Trade Center site after a crane part was placed in a nearby street.

The city says that contractors building one of four planned office towers at the site didn't have permission to put a crane boom down in a street before raising it. Tishman Construction was using one crane to lift a taller crane for the skyscraper under construction. It is one of three office towers being built at the government-owned site by private developer Larry Silverstein.

The cranes have been out of commission since Thursday.

Tishman spokesman John Gallagher says contractors are meeting with the city Tuesday to address crane concerns.

Are you asking me to believe a crane contractor in NY is ignoring rules? Get real.

Based on some recent incidents a better question might be to they ever follow them? Of course there is a big difference between rules created by politicians and rules for safety and in many cases they are very different.

This isn't exactly bad news. I think there should be zero tolerance for carelessness on the job on all construction sites but given this site's significance and audience size it should be about perfect. No harm, no foul...get it right already.

I agree, there should be no room for messing around with safety.

back to work for the working man. Supertall it may but it's still amazing to watch it get built.

The first time I saw this building, I thougt it has a dent (in the upper section, left corner)
But last time I was there I stood right there on the corner, and everything seemed to be in line.
Somehow my eyes play tricks on me (no difference between pictures and standing there "live").
Anybody with the same problems? [sorry for going OT]

Whenever many cranes are in fouling distance they slow things down and have to be more careful.

I dunno what's more sad, you thinking i'm an idiot, or you thinking that a construction accident at the wtc site would be funny.

What made me laugh was the sarcasm in webeagle12's comment

I never said you were an idiot or that it would be funny to see people being crushed by a crane
