This will look really dark next to 4WTC. OF course, the latter is extremely light...

Actually I did post my logo/username on it. See my original work.

Sorry about the little off topic. Anyways...I'm really loving the dark glass on it. Looks just gorgeous.

I can't wait to see this building rise. Reminds me of the Comcast tower in Philly a little bit

Is it me, or has the crane which they started to take down, grown? Are they putting it back up again now?

Nice update, Skyscrapers144! I can't wait for the real contract to be signed so construction can start again! (I hope that happens.)

It's not like that is going to stop anyone wanting to use his photos. Anyway, IP isn't real property.

I first thought it was glass, but then I thought it was some air conditioning equipment. But now I think it's glass again. Anyway, nice observation, wtcforever! When you first mentioned those "clear things", I was confused, but then I went on to earthcam and I understood what you meant.

Please do not quote pictures if they are directly before your post. Especially if they are enormous.

And what claw thing are you referring to? If you are referring to the large steel structure, then that is the Oculus or Transportation Hub.

I believe that's the start of the Transportation Hub, if I'm looking at what you're referring to. And let me take this opportunity to say that I think the new Transportation Hub is awful looking with all its sharp pointy spires sticking out. Just horrendous. People walking in daylight under the shadows of those pointy things are going to have seizures!

Sorry about that. Sorry if I sound stupid, but what's the Oculus again?

It looks a little dirty, but I bet when it's completed it'll look amazing! You can go from the Transportation Hub to Grand Central Station, right?

The Oculus is the PATH station. Oculo- means "eye", hence the shape.

Not directly. The PATH does not run to Grand Central, and the only subway lines connected to the hub are the 2/3 and A/C/E. Eventually, there's a plan to directly link the Transportation Hub and the new Fulton St complex, where the 4/5 will take you to Grand Central in short order.
