There are only ten floors visible, and the "cage" doesn't have to go up all the same time.

In the circle the last floors before the setback ? The walls are slanted inward.

And this started in December 2009.

1WTC started April 2006. 4WTC in Oct 2008.

NYC is long past the construction days of buildings like 40 Wall Street and ESB. But One57's speed is impressive for our time.

Yea, ESB started construction in May 1930 and was topped off by July 1931.

At one point, they build 22 stories in 22 days.

I think its the Unions which have made the workers lazy and less productive than previous ones.

I've notice concrete buildings tend to go up faster than steel ones.

22 stories in 22 days...that's really amazing! But safety standards were also a lot lower of course back then.

back then they used only native americans from northern New York and Canada. Obviously, they probably didn't care too much about their safety.

I think they use the native americans a lot less these days.

Ironworkers came from many ethnic backgrounds. The largest came from Newfoundland, Mohawk Indians, Irish, German, or Scandinavian.

Buildings back in early 20th century were built as open shafts. No floor boards for many storys. If you fell, you'd fall a long way. Now they're required to build out the floors as they go up. There were no safety cocoons or netting back then either. And ironworkers didn't tie off with safety lines.

OSHA wasn't even formed till 1971. A lots changed.

I actually remember reading somewhere that Native American steelworkers were common because they had a great sense of balance which is obviously beneficial when your walking on beams 100s of feet in the air.

Not to mention politics and construction were separated things back then..These days those two are close like Donald Trump and his toupee..
