I have a feeling the Sphere is coming tonight. There’s a crane on site as per earth cam. They were working on he platform this morning. Lots of activity going on behind the fence right now. Hmm…

Edit
It definitely has to be happening tonight…

Nice Dragon!! Wonderign where the huge chunk of the top is though? Seems to me they missed a piece…?!


#265

Thanks!
About that chunk, maybe they’ll put the pieces altogether when the Sphere is in place.
Let’s remember that it’s easier carrying a huge sculpture in pieces than the whole sculpture.


#266

Welp they are working on the Sphere again tonight. Hopefully the top piece is installed!

When will they start cladding the church?


#270

Sometime before the end of this year


#271

The church is opening November 2018


#272

It’s actually insane how long its taking to build this damn church. It was unnecessary for them to commission Calatrava to design this knowing very well everything of his takes 1000 years to complete. The church got greedy with this vanity project.

Just in time for my 20th Birthday! If only it were opening Nov. 2019… Then I’d go down for the opening and have a drink later because I’m 21. Not religious or anything, but just excited to see something being completed at this site


#276

Took these today on the way to visiting my friend in Battery Park City. The cloudy skies made for some cool effects on the towers.

Is that window washers on one world trade that I’m seeing?


#278

Yeah, it definitely looks like it. Ive been wondering what will happen first: a fully clean One WTC, or 2 WTC rising from the ground.


#279

nah, sadly looks like a camera flare :wink:

Great photos on here!

I don’t know if anyone mentioned it yet, but they opened up additional stairwells some time in the past few months. It’s much easier to get up to Liberty Park now.
