Keep in mind that those beams support the trading floors behind the tower, not the tower itself. When the western beams start coming in, they'll be much larger.

Not to be a quibbler for correctness, but the verticals are columns. Horizontal structural pieces are beams. Noticed several on this forum making that erroneous distinction.

That common mistake bugs me as well, but you have to cut the average guy some slack...

It's an easy mistake to make because of what we colloquially call a big piece of iron for a building... an I-Beam... We don't have the slang term... an I-Column... So the terminology is not in the layman's lexicon.

Aren't there any new construction photos? It's been a while since this thread was last updated.

I'll be staying at the Hilton for 5 nights starting June 30th, so you'll have plenty of pictures. Nothing you can't really see with the webcams, though.

Please take lots of pictures... Most of the webcams have been stuck for days.

I only have a 3 year old Canon point and shoot, so you'll get a measely 3x or so zoom. I'm sorry. Nice camera, but getting old. I plan on upgrading to a better one next year.

Still, I'll take a lot. More than I should, really.

If it's anywhere over 10Megapixels, don't zoom in when you take it, but crop it later on. You should be able to crop it nice and close without digital noise from zooming.

Oh, I won't be using digital zoom. Just the optical. Here is a shot from 2009 using the same camera so you know what to expect. I'd upgrade, but money is tight.

Not if you are smart and find the cheapest time span to stay. It's a corporate hotel, so their prices over the 4th of July holiday were only $169 for a queen sized bed above the 31st floor.

But that was the advanced purchase price. I'm sure if you just walk in and ask for a room it'll be closer to the normal prices.
