What we all saw was a little kickoff party today for the construction workers on Tower 3 with lots of donuts provided by Dunkin ;D I bet it's because the crawler is scheduled to be in tomorrow.

The Bay crane that was parked at Greenwich and Fulton is being set up on Fulton just West of Greenwich. Probably gonna set more steel over there.

Just to clarify, that Bay Crane is in no way affiliated with 3 WTC. They will never use Bay Crane when installing the tower cranes, that's for New York Crane.

That Bay Crane is for 6 WTC (PAC).

That spire height looks like it is significantly more than 1170ft. Maybe it is just the angle.

#1 Please dont make up stuff...



#2 They suppose to put crawler to set up tower cranes. Bay cranes can handle that like they did before (ltm 1500 with jib should done a job here if they used mobile crane). It all matter if there crane available from Bay Crane for rent.

I had a feeling that this one had nothing to do with WTC3 because the location it was parked in. There are more than enough space to park next to WTC3 like they always did before.

Sorry for going slightly off-topic here, but how do we know the PAC is going to be called 6WTC? If you look at all the site maps / plans that are out there on the internet, I never see the PAC being reffered to as 6WTC.

You can't see Cortlandt from the angle the Earthcam is... It's still there being assembled. In fact, the boom came earlier for it.

Huh, my documents were correct. It said it would be put into operation 8/23, but was skeptical because that was a weekend day.
