That red crane assembling that space never moves all day in the earthcam, and yet steel keeps appearing. Weird...
@Yankee: That was the rendering I was talking about. They just wanted to show the site's enirety, but for some strange reason, ended up twisting 1WTC into that shape. Probably to fit in the picture, I guess.
The angle that the tower looks like it's on, is actually perpendicular to both Vesey and Fulton streets, and 90 feet away from West Street, which is the one with the angle. If you look at the American Express tower across the street, it is also set at an angle away from West Street.
PS: Oh, they made the Manitowoc longer? Probably either to finish the base or to retain it's title as ''big red''.
