    ^ I thought the Freedom Tower had 88 floors now?

    Either way it doesn't matter. They're tall and they look good.

    Anyone know the height of the building? Looks easily 1100 feet tall to the roof that is. I heard somewhere that the spires would be 1260 feet. So I guess we could have 3 buildings officially taller...

    I thought it took more like ~3 months to dig a hole, then the other 9 to put the steel and concrete in. The hole doesn't really look much different than it did in April.

    Yea they did, which is why it's stupid to cancell/pospone the Freedom Tower if they don't get 40% (Which I'm not optomistic about)
