Highly doubt it and I wouldn't even want those posted for security concerns... this building is already a target. That being said some people always tend to get access to crazy places every once in a blue moon so if they popped up it wouldn't surprise me.

Yeah, probably the best we'll see are existing photos from the outside of when the core was under construction.

There are numerous shots from inside the core on the official WTC website.

It's just about as tall as the tallest in my city (hideous blue and gray box):



Driving east on I-69, I have one hell of a time picturing the base of 1WTC in place of that building. That really drove the scale of this project home for me.

I think you are confusing interior shots of the Memorial with the core. I see no pics taken inside the core.

There are a number of shots taken within the tower, but the core has not gotten to those floors yet.

The current top of steel is about 4 feet above the 24th floor, elevation 239' 4", so call it 243 feet.

The tower is now higher than it is wide.

Maybe they're not on the official website (and I'm pretty sure there are), but there were definitely some shots of workers setting up rebar in the core.

as it looks like they finally filled in the space theve been leaving out for the 18000, i'm guessing its job is done? and if so, will it be torn down or moved to a different spot on the site?

Took these about three hours ago. I'm in the Whole Foods in trbeca right now but I'm heading back over to the site in a few to get some more photos. Things are pretty exciting at the site today...a lot of activity and a load of tourists. Looking good More photos will be posted tonight.

Yup, now the hard part is done (the base levels), and the weather is getting better, this thing should just take off.
