That's some tall steel. That'll form two of the four basement floors. Great to finally see this one growing.

What can we expect? Vertical steel, horizontal steel, forms and then concrete?

Those pictures are from a blog...
http://blogs.discovery.com/rebuildin...rane.html#more

...that is part of Discovery's "The Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero" project.
http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/the-rising/

For now it's only the website, but it will be a real TV show, executive produced by Steven Spielberg later this year.

As we have a saying in Holland: that's from the time that men were made of steel and boats were made of wood... but it is always hard to translate sayings.

Iron men and wooden ships. I've actually heard that one before, and I live in the US.

Very, very impressive to see the outline of this amazing tower take shape so quickly. It sucks that the foundations will take so long, but it's totally worth it.
