^ Larry and the PANYNJ are fighting over the site because Larry claims the site isn't ready for him to build on since the PA didn't finish preping the site, but the PA claims that the site is ready and meets his requirements, so hopefully they can do something productive and get the tower going ASAP, but if not, it's going to be a long road; they are like cats and dogs. But I'm sure someone like Bloomberg will step in if the fight gets bad enough to threaten the success of rebuilding. At least Tower 1 and Tower 4 are going places, with Tower 3 right behind them. It's not like the towers will not get built, but Tower 2 may take longer because its behind the rest. However, that just means there will always be something to watch.

Before the EarthCam went down there was a rock driller working on the T2 plot, so I guess they started doing something again. I hope to see more of them when the Cam is back online

The HD cam is online right now and has been online for many weeks, but no one has touched the Tower 2 site for three weeks; it's such a waste of time.

sorry but which webcam do you mean? "HD" sounds good..
I only know the earthcam (http://www.earthcam.net/users2/inter...2&clientid=158) and this one http://rebuildgroundzero.org/webcam/rgz_000.jpg, but none of them seems like high definition?!

because you zoom into the parts and then the resolution distorts as you zoom in. But the original view of the whole site definitely seems HD.

The HD earthcam has been showing the same pic since 1:30PM so it is down for now.

But it did seem to show a rock driller, as mentioned, so that is good news.

I really like the design in this one, it is going to make a statement in the skyline.

The earthcam is working again, but the rock driller is gone. Apart from a little boom lift the site looks quite desolate again

According to wtc.com tower 2 should be rising but it doesn't look like much is happening now.
What's the hold-up?

The Port Authority is still excavating the site. We probably won't see any serious work begin on this one for several more months.

Lowermanhattan.info reports the site is to be turned over to Silverstein Properties on March 31. There information is pretty reliable. Though sometimes when they post approximate dates they are usually off somewhat. I doubt the Port Authority is going to be ready in just 5 days.

If I were to guess, it won't be turned over to Silverstein till late April or maybe even May.
