I like it, but it's so simple and wide that it doesn't seem as tall as it really is :/

Because 99% don't even know there is a different name for buildings higher than 300m? (btw in German language there doesn't even exist a different name)

Ladies and gentlemen, I have seen on Earthcam that the replacement boom on the second tower crane is now in place! once again four tower cranes gracing the sky above the World Trade Center site!

Not surprised that the PA made DCM swap out the TG1900 for a Favco crane.

What a nightmare this must have been for the schedule/cost.
