I haven't seen much work done since Tuesday. Is it the weather that is affecting them? No one on the roof yesterday or today.

Those mast pieces don't look strong enough to be the heavy duty tower cranes.

At the site right now; They're currently lifting sections onto the top of building. It's all red just like the other crane.

People are amazed by the trans hub!

This. I'm pretty sure those are not crane sections.

ps: I mean to say "tower crane"

Well, the boom on the crawler has been lowered, so maybe those are crane pieces.....for the crawler crane.

If they ARE indeed for a new tower crane, it won't be a strong one based off the size of the mast sections...

With the cold wind and the many people during rush hour, I was only able to get this gritty image of them lifting a section.

I did get two more of a much larger section with ladders inside it.

Excuse my ignorance please, but why is this tower on hold? Is there any date for a construction start?

Lack of tenants, thus meaning lack of financing. Same for 2 WTC.
