you would be the one to freak out about the FLU. you realize over 250,000 people a year die from the normal flu.... and what, 10 confirmed have died from this one?

we're all thrilled the media has scared you into your dark hole.

No. Simply it is over-hyped (like someone else already said). There hasn't have to bee a conspiracy for this to happen, it's the very nature of mass news report, or more known as the media. A possible threat that that generates attention, increases media commerce (increase in viewers for television-linked media such as CNN or BBC, that generates more profit for selling spot slots at a higher price due to tv ratings). Similar system for internet and paper based media. No conspiracy, just following their own interest, their nature, so it's what they're supposed to do. They exploit natural human attraction to peril, destruction and fear, it's in our genes.

Your comment is poor sarcasm that adds nothing. So it's just the average comment, useless in its stupidity.

Hope this can end this OT that has already gone too far.

if you're that afraid of the flu, you should seriously just stay indoors your entire life... however, that may be a bad idea as well because you're much more likely to die falling off your toilet than from this "pandemic"

I apologize you did post pictures! Of course they only show cranes and not what's going on with the buildings. Next time I tried to show some detail of the construction.

What?! Tons of people have posted pictures of the cranes, it sounds like you just need something to complain about. The pictures are completely fine. What did you want him to do? Jump down in the hole?

You can't really see down into that side of the hole because on the east there's a closed sidewalk, and on the west there's the subway tunnel structure. I'll try to get some photos that show more of the action next time i'm in NYC (probably next week).

Whoa, this tower is growing like a weed. Those pictures I posted before were from around May 1st. Significant work has been done since then, looks like a lot of concrete was poured. The core is going to be street level in no time flat.
