Not new video, however WTC3 looks nice with the new design. Not as bad as I thought it would be.

Also, if this is the new design for WTC3, why did they keep the old antenna for WTC1 here?

Maybe it's because it's Larry's video and 1WTC belongs to the PA so maybeLarry doesn't have all the newest info on 1WTC, though that is just a guess

I'd have a question to Otie, do you have such a roof render of 1WTC too?

Developing: WTC Crane Drops Load Onto Street
By: NY1 News
Emergency crews have been called to the World Trade Center site after a load being hoisted by a crane fell onto the street below.

Details are limited, but the incident is said to have taken place at 4 World Trade Center.

There's no word of any injuries.

NY1 has a crew headed to the scene and will have more information as it becomes available.

Now hearing 1 injury.

Sounds like no one was hurt. A cable snapped and an unoccupied trailer was crushed. Thank goodness no one was hurt

PS, I guess this will probably stop construction for at least a few days as safety items will be reviewed. maybe on WTC 1 as well

A cable inspection on 4WTC sure but I doubt it will have any influence on 1WTC. From what I know the two towers are constructed separately

"A 35-foot steel column fell off a crane this morning at the World Trade Center, crushing a vehicle on the site and leading to a partial shutdown of construction, officials said.

The incident occurred just before 10 a.m. One minor injury was reported - a construction worker slipped and fell while running near the fallen steel..."

It could impact every crane in the city as the DOB gets sent out for additional inspections.

Remember, just a few years ago a number of cranes collapsed and killed civilians and it was also determined that safety inspectors were taking bribes not to do inspections. It is a sensitive issue here.
