Cladding started on the east side.



I'm also waiting to see how they'll manage to set up the 760 now that the remaining of the TG2300 jumped all the way up. I guess we'll either see the LTM1500 or the AC500 with the full jib extension. If the east 1280 is close enough, they might gently ask Skanska to lend it for a few days (even though I very highly doubt it).

They are probably not New Yorkers, let alone American. Americans don't wear scarves in the summer for fashion =). That is a very European thing to do. Anyway, they look like hopelessly lost tourists. I hope they made back safe to their hotel where the mother can reflect on what went wrong in her life while staring at the dark ceiling above her bed. Just saying.

4 WTC has the best glass on site, just beating 7 WTC. Very close. I think I'll like 3 WTC's glass very much (since it has the same glass as 1 WTC!)

I don't think they'd need containers for fluids they wouldn't digest either.
