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''.

The reason is that the subway is in use during the day and they shut down service at night so the crane can install the beams. I saw this happen a late night evening or two ago and it makes sense to do it that way. Or possibly crush a train full of passengers with a fallen beam and make headline news for an entire year, ya know.

Can anyone confirm operational hours for that part of the subway?

Well those are the PATH trains that run under the FT..so techinically not the subway but I believe that they run until like 11 I check right now...

Alright, yeah service is from 6:00 A.M. to 11:00 P.M. on the weekends..but that's for the green line that runs between Hoboken and the WTC..there's also a red line that runs between Newark and the WTC that runs 24 hours and 7 days a week..Not sure what this means..Maybe they run under different areas of the WTC..?

Also I have a question for the people that post photos up here. I take photos down at the WTC about once or twice a week and have been doing so for a decent amount time now..I've been wanting to post them up here but I was wondering if photobucket (or whatever sites you guys use) have some type of auto-watermarking function..don't know if this exists but I just don't want to have to manually put watermarks on each and every photo. It's not that my photos are amazing or anything it's just that I'm not to comfortable with other people taking them without my permission..you never know what can happen..Is this possible or do I just have to deal? Thanks.

I forgot, but are they still assembling big red on the west side? If so how is the progress on that and when should we be seeing the colums on the west half start going up?

Don't worry, the other buildings will only make 1WTC look taller, GS is the same height as 7WTC, and even Beekman is 100 feet shorter than tower 4 in that picture. There's not a building even proposed in NYC that will make 1WTC look anything but incredibly tall.

Found this on youtube, video of the 18000. Looks like it was shot on the 26th.

Almost it's 1350 ft with the antenna spire. The Area is 2,530,000 sq ft.

One World Trade Center is 2,600,000 sq ft.

I really like the design of 2 WTC. That first pic looks like it's from a scifi movie. Have you ever thought that if somebody from 1980s came to 2015 and saw this they would be like wth?? what happened to the twin towers? Of course we'd all know. I just thought its interesting how things change.

Question about [RIGHT]the ring on top of "One World Trade Center". The smaller circular shapes facing outwards on the ring are communications equipment correct? I cannot tell be looking at the pics,but I always thought they are part of the antenna and not lighting. One other question is will the base of he building change lighting pattern at night or stay a brilliant white light?

Thanks

Please don't say that, these all have enough working against them.

Imo, each building completes the total area and I can't wait to see them all change NY's skyline.

Keep in mind that the focus of the HD webcam is the memorial, not 1WTC. I wouldn't be surprised if they set up a second webcam to follow FT's construction later on.
