    This one is special.

    The wavy surfaces on Beekman Tower gleaming like the ripples in the water out there on Belle Harbor. What's the saying: 'You can't see the Forest, through trees'. Or, something like that - thanks for the fine photos.

    Several new steel columns appearing after a recent slow down, structural steel nearing completion, curtain wall climbing daily: THE EXCITEMENT IS BUILDING.

    Tower 1 reflected in Tower 4 and partially in Tower 7. This is a couple of months back. I must update it. Taken from the bottom of the VSC excavation.

    The radome enclosure will be assembled in 20ft sections; the antenna will consist of stacked steel rings made from lattice steel using 9" solid round stock, weighting about 400 tons (only the antenna structure).
    So I'm guessing they're not going to build the radome antenna like the original?

    Post 19228 from SSP should clarify your questions.

    Re: the picture in post 11686. When the new antenna is put up, this classic scene should be recreated. With the same ironworkers, if possible.
