Brooklyn Bridge Park is actually one of the best locations to take pictures of the World Trade Center along with the Brooklyn Bridge. It's my favorite place to relax and take pictures from as well.

I take it that the 105th floor, or 104 also, is a little more complicated than the other floors, which is why it is taking them a little longer to get finished?

Floor 104 needs columns so beams can be placed for the start of the roof or 105.

I can imagine the roof jump tomorrow, but the parapet jump? That's impossible. Maybe in a few more weeks it will be officially topped out.

^Yeah I can also imagine it but it's,unluckily,not happening.No steel is going to be raised tomorrow because the ironworkers are off for Indepence Day.Some steel should arrive later this week though.

Like I said I don't mind the delay on topping off. If it tops off on July 19th it would coincide with the topping off of the South Tower which topped off on that day back in 1973.

The South Tower topped out in July, 1971 so it opened in 1973. Yeah One World Trade will top out eventually it's almost there so we're on the right track.

They kept it - somewhat. There will be a ring of sorts, but a lot less visible than what was planned.

The way progress looks now I'd say late july or early august cause we still need 104 to be decked also 105 and the parapet.
