    Based on the diagrams on the previous page, there's another level or two at least.

    The latest jump brings us up to 1244 feet, slightly above the 100th floor. So it hasn't surpassed the ESB (1250 feet) yet. Exactly 129 feet to go till parapet height (1373 - 1244).

    The connecting plates at the top of the new steel is the 100th floor.

    The 1-800-Got-Junk truck helps to add interest on the right side of the picture, and adds a great juxtaposition to the car signs on the left. I'd prefer it if it were just B&W or color, though.

    Also someone can probably edit out that post lamp blocking 1WTC, just saying.

    Default I like the lamp post.

    It adds dimension and texture.

    Ooooh I like that one. I don't think I've seen anyone try that particular shot before

    \/\/ I think I remember seeing that one. Liked it as well. You get used to seeing shots from the same angles all of the time so shots like these stand out. And the WFC looks way taller than it actually is in that shot.

    Strange light last PM from the Jersey side. This "lightning bolt from heavens" effect will be something to behold when the tower is finished.

    The tapered side must be reflecting light back towards the sky.
