My friend got to sign that beam. She wrote a message in Chinese to the upper right of the "R" in "Center"

ABC News just reported there was a load shift on a crane while lifting steel @ 4WTC, it crashed into the building at the 54 floor and broke windows, no one was reported hurt. They have reporters on the way to the site.

Very nice, unusual perspective! Thought at first: "Since when does NYC has a tram?"

No offense but it clearly says "NJ" transit on the front of the light rail.
This is in Jersey.

Great shots as always Nexis

incidentally, i find it strange that despite all the hype of monday's 'topping out', i have yet to see a pic of the white beam actually in place on the roof, or anywhere in the general vicinity of the roof for that matter. and no ceremonial trees, or even the elusive 4wtc 'horse' .

Are there NJ Transit trains that serve NY Penn Station or Philadelphia 30th Street or are they not allowed to leave the state?

Light Rail can't leave the state , only Regional Rail and Buses...

Light rail or heavy rail leave the state or in some cases the city for that matter.
You would have to take a Septa regional rail line train to 30th street.
Going to New York, get on at 30th and take am track. I live In Philly

There are NJ transit trains that go to NY Penn Station, but those are the "heavy rail" commuter trains. The street-cars in the picture are the Hudson-Bergen light rail, it goes from Bayonne to North Bergen. It does connect to the PATH, which will take you to NY.

Here's a link to the map http://www.njtransit.com/pdf/LightRa...r_hblr_map.pdf

The two panels damaged are located at the south side facing Liberty Street.



Two Days of Trouble Follow a Milestone at 4 World Trade Center

Quote:
By DAVID W. DUNLAP
June 27, 2012

The streets and sidewalks of Lower Manhattan were snarled on Wednesday afternoon — that is, even more snarled than usual — after the police cordoned off a large area around 4 World Trade Center in response to a construction accident at the site.

It was the second accident in a week that had begun cheerfully with a topping-out ceremony marking the installation of the uppermost steel beam in the 977-foot skyscraper at Liberty and Church Streets.

On Tuesday, a 37-year-old worker was badly injured when he fell about six feet onto a steel reinforcing bar, or rebar. John P. Gallagher, a first vice president of the Tishman Construction Corporation, which is building the tower, said the worker, whom he did not identify, was in stable condition, with two broken ribs and a bruised liver. He is expected to be able to leave Bellevue Hospital Center in two or three days.

On Wednesday, the Fire Department said, a crane was lifting a beam — Mr. Gallagher described it as a 53-foot, 24-ton steel truss — when the weight of the load shifted and the beam crashed into windows on the 46th floor. The truss shattered two panes, each 5 feet wide and 13-and-a-half feet high, Mr. Gallagher said. The tempered glass behaved as it is supposed to: breaking largely within the frames, held together by laminated interior layers and not throwing off big, dangerous shards, he added. The Fire Department said no one was injured.

Nonetheless, pieces of glass did fall to Liberty Street.

“Fortunately, the street was closed at the time, and the Liberty Street sidewalk is protected by a construction shed,” Mr. Gallagher said.
