That's how I feel too!! It's so huge and so tall, it just doesn't feel real. But it is! It's a lot to absorb, literally and figuratively.

Also, ty to the ones who got back to me re: the NJ memorial. Much appreciated!

WHOA! I'm headed back in 20 days now. At this rate the glass is going, it's gonna be pretty much finished by the time I get there

EDIT: I went to Earthcam and zoomed in on that same view. They have 1 floor left in that vertical gap on the west end. YEAH!!!! The New Jersey view will finally look like the north/south views

Well.its still early yet. Perhaps they'll pick another (the last?) section and get it bolted into place before the day is out. Be nice if someone could get some close up shots of the progress as its happening.
