I walked by 217-225 West 57th/220 W58th on 1 Nov 2011, and demolition was in full swing.

Did you see actual work taking place, or just the black netting?

The black netting has been there a long time, and I haven't seen any visible progress in the amount of demolition in a while.

I'm am going by again tonight and I so have pictures from this past Sunday which I'll try to post later.

My new diagram is ready

Roof height used below!

[IMG]http://i41.************/14b2v4z.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = 340 meters or 1115 feet out of 418 meters or 1371 feet
4WTC = Approximately 217 meters or 712 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet
1 57 = Approximately 145 meters or 476 feet out of 306 meters or 1005 feet

(Note: I used the 418 meter figure for 1WTC when measured from the lowest above ground entrance and I used the 298 meter figure for 4WTC.)

Did you not see any news lately? The whole of the North East US was covered in snow up to 80 cm.

But the others are talking in Celsius, and you in Fahrenheit, so 50 degrees is 10 degrees Celsius
Btw here in the Netherlands, it was the hottest October in years, and also now November is still very good.

It should be around 16 deg right now, and that's what it is. The snow was a fluke. Two weeks earlier, it was 28 deg in NY which also was unusual.

Went by the site yesterday.

More cladding up on the side. It does look like it has interesting coloration and patterns. Can't wait until it is on the front or back so it can be clearly seen.

The crane situation is bizarre. The original crane is lower than the new one but they didn't change its height from last week. Normally on this project when they do something they do it quickly. So they still seem to be using the original crane for something.

They might use the original one for the cladding

I dunno but I recall Dino saying that using a normal crane for cladding is way too expensive and uneconomic

Not if the crane was there to begin with and has become obsolete. Their options are take down the crane or use it for cladding, so they will probably use it for cladding for the time being.
