The pics are appreciated. Is the view good from the 2nd floor of the Burger King? A pic from that vantage point would be interesting.

Yeah, the pics are definitely appreciated. There are no webcams showing a decent (by any stretch of the word) view of 4WTC, so the daily or semi-daily pictures that we get from you and others are the only way for us who don't live in NYC to keep up with the construction.

And the 2nd floor of Burger King gave a good view when the construction was below-ground, but now that the building is above ground and is so huge, it would be impossible to fit the building into frame from that close to the 4WTC, so it's probably not that good of a vantage point anymore. The view from Zuccotti Park (however it's spelled) is the best. Though, it would be nice to be able to see a shot of what's going on at the front side of the building (facing Greenwich). Any change of getting a shot of that, from Liberty Street?

(BTW, speaking of that Burger King, did anyone ever see "WTC: The First 24 Hours"? There's footage from inside the BK taken on the first night where you see rescue crews using it as a kinda rest area and eating hamburgers. Then the cameraman walks up to the 2nd floor and there's a really eerie view where there's a huge chunk of the steel face of the South Tower sticking into the ground, right outside the window that the tourists always crowd around.)

And yes the shadows on the ground, are being caused by the blinding reflection off of 7 WTC. :haha:
