As you can see, Google Earth images are over 3 years outdated. (No WTC7)

Those building footprints are a little outdated as well though.

Wow... pretty impressive. I really like the Memorial Site, and the Calatrava hub is AMAZING. I'm not really a fan of the Foster tower, but most New Yorkers seem to love it. And I'm sure I'll like it when I see it in person. And at least it's glass... overall I think the NWTC is really nice. Also, what's wrong with 7WTC? Too bland? I kinda love it. It's really beautiful. And so is 4WTC.

You have any compassion for the victims of 9/11. Amazing the lack of respect for what happen.

Agreed, quality materials can make up for what may seem like a 'bland' design. Not to mention it's lit up quite well and the base IMO is pretty damn good. Love that pic that NYguy posted of it at sunset/night.

Indeed. I've grown to love 7 WTC. It's a clean design that was exceptionally done.

The cab and counter weights are on the second crane.

2 hurt by falling WTC skyscraper debris

By AMY WESTFELDT, Associated Press Writer

A 15-foot pipe fell off a skyscraper being dismantled near the World Trade Center site and plunged through the roof of a nearby firehouse Thursday, injuring two firefighters, officials said.

Demolition work was stopped on the 40-story former Deutsche Bank building after the sprinkler pipe fell from the 35th floor onto Engine 10/Ladder 10.

The firehouse was nearly destroyed in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Six of its firefighters were among the 343 killed responding to the burning World Trade Center, and a bronze memorial to all the firefighters who died is now affixed to the building.

The neighboring skyscraper, being dismantled floor by floor, was heavily damaged when one of the twin towers collapsed into it. Cleanup of toxic material in the building began in 2005, and work to dismantle it began late last year.

Workers from John Galt Corp. were cutting the pipe at around 7 a.m. when it dislodged and fell through the firehouse roof below, officials said. Two firefighters were treated for minor injuries and released, fire officials said. The firefighters weren't hit by the pipe, the department said.

The city Buildings Department issued John Galt Corp. a violation for failure to safeguard the public and property, spokeswoman Kate Lindquist said. A message left with the company wasn't immediately returned Thursday.

Work dismantling the former Deutsche Bank building has been stopped before by environmental regulators. A search is also ongoing for hundreds of human bones that have been recovered from the building over the past 18 months.
