That shot of the tower cranes (one of them carrying the concrete bucket) up close with 7 WTC in the upper right-hand corner is very dramatic and phrnominal!!

This building is probably the most talked-about construction project in all of New York!!

Exactly!

Mainly, I think, because it will be the 2nd office tower (7 wtc was the 1st) to pierce the skyline for Ground Zero!!.

Great night shot with the sunset in the background, NYguy!!

But you're right! I would imagine that they must work at night to keep on schedule and meet the construction timetable.

I'd love to have this as my avator someday, so I think I'll do just that!!

Not sure about that... of course I can only speak for myself, but here in Sweden I read alot more about the Burj Dubai in the newspapers. I guess Dubai feels more exotic then NY. Still a great project though and it will be interesting to follow it as it gets built.

If that ^ is the situation here ( around 500 miles from NYC), what do you expect in Europe or the far east ? What makes you say 'planet' ?

Well, for starters... JMGarcia travels all over the globe, and has testified that he is accosted with questions about the FT wherever he goes.

Why don't you try a little exercise, aluminum: Query "Freedom Tower" in Google News and see how many international news stories pop up. Me thinks it will be an education for a dude obviously in need of one...
