Sorry for stupid question.
No, they are not. If you look at the first picture on Page 1 of this thread you will see the four new WTC towers stand around two pools in a park. Those two pools are the footprints of the old WTC skyscrapers.

So does the tower crane on the left (east side of the building) serve the same purpose as the corner-mounted crane on 1WTC? IIRC, the one for tower 1 is mainly used to bring up rebar for the core.

Cladding should start any day now. I'll be staying at a hotel in Lower Manhattan this weekend, I hope it's then!

They're budding. You'll start to notice leaves over the next two weeks.

After re-reading some material, found out the tower cladding will actually have a matte finish to it, not unlike a laptop screen. So it will have very diffuse reflections. Should be interesting.

Give it a few weeks and they will be. In the northeast part of the US, usually by the 1st of May trees have all their leaves.

Oh my God. I JUST realized... The setbacks or shoulders of 3WTC almost exactly match the setback and roof of 4WTC. Why this took me so long to realize I don't know. But my mind has just been blown :O
