Jesus Christ, Calm the heck down. This has nothing to do with sports in here, this is a topic about a tower.

Nice to see some new steel. At this rate we'll probably top out late spring or possibly early summer.

It's supposed to top out in April. I think that's feasible considering that it looks like the tower's in for another growth spurt like the one we saw late October-early November when they added new steel for three weeks in a row

I forgot who, but someone posted a week or so ago that as long as new steel went up in the next week or two they are still within the schedule to meet the April top out date.

How many more jumps of steel are we looking at 4 to 5 after this jump??

These look like they are 50' tall from floor 90 to 92. You can see the mounting point for floors 91,92 on those columns. 92nd floor Splices are 1,189'

OMG I noticed the steel from the Ferry on my way home from school today, I nearly flew into a giddy fit but I didn't want to start a riot of Giants fans on a boat in the middle of the harbor.

Where approximately was this photo taken from? It's a great view of the WTC; I am planning a NYC trip for the first time, so i am scouting for great spots to get pictures of the skyline.
