I even didn't see stairs on that thing, maybe it's an extra prison cell or so.

Just a small question: If you look at the picture, you will see, next to the 4 WTC there are cranes. At which building they are fixed? It's not visible...

Or did I become a kind of blind?
it,s the side crane of 4wtc (just like 1wtc has one)

I just noticed that it's visible from the KPI TV Cam:

Bet these mobile observation towers cost a pretty penny:

Zuccotti Park needs a watchful protector.

I know I'm a bit late but reaching the treshold of the trapezoid floors is a big event so I have a new diagram for you

Roof height used below!

[IMG]http://i42.************/im7xw5.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = 327 meters or 1074 feet out of 418 meters or 1371 feet
4WTC = Approximately 217 meters or 712 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet
1 57 = Approximately 133 meters or 436 feet out of 306 meters or 1005 feet

(Note: I used the 418 meter figure for 1WTC when measured from the lowest above ground entrance and I used the 298 meter figure for 4WTC.)

OMG! I did not know WTC4 was being built! I only thought it was the Freedom Tower. (Face slap) What world do I live on? *sarcasm*

That crane is on WTC 4 - it is attached to its side and is sliding up it as construction progresses.

Oops. already answered about 10 posts ago :-)
