Nice..I was expecting this since 3WTC isn't that far behind the 2WTC..
So we'll probably see vertical steel right after tower cranes are rised..

How old are these pictures? They certainly are not real recent because the tower cranes for WTC2 are not installed yet in them.

You can clearly see two cranes to the right in the picture. I'm pretty sure those are within the past week.

Looks like they are getting ready to install the tower crane(s), as seen with the installation of the black crane base in this picture.
