    To be frank, it's amazing how much the other sites "borrow" from WNY. I'm obviously not in the city right now, so I'm not insulted. I'm more flattered. Not sure how the photographers feel.

    Probably going to lift the massive girders on the temporary hub.

    Edit: nope, moving a couple of new girders that have arrived

    Anyone know what is going into the long north <> south underground space to the west of the subway box and east of the South Pool?

    GZ earthcam shows the space hasn't been fully covered over yet. Seems it will include a large entry point to the subway at the foot of Cortland Street on the Memorial side. I'm curious if this area will include an extended subterranean pedestrian passageway running from Liberty Street all the way north to the PATH Station.

    No, there are subterranean passageways but not to that extent and definitely not for pedestrians.

    They lifted another giant arch into place at about 10 this morning - previously this all had to be done at night while the station below was empty but not anymore. Not exactly sure what changed but things should really pick up now - all of the arches should be at least on site by mid December, I'm told.

    So the first big piece went into the empty space on the left and it looks like the remaining two are being prepped for the right side.

    Does anyone know exactly which portion of the hub are these arches going to make up?

    The roof of the new PATH Hall (Station).

    Ah, here it is. I was looking around for this picture:


    From this Flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/twi-ny/page381/

    Pages 381-2 contain pictures of the PATH hall and a potential future 1 train stop. As recent as possible, so it seems(minus the sun roof).

    How are they going to keep the classic NYC grit and grime off the tops of all those pretty white arches?

    ^ Nice!
    I must say construction on the path hall roof has really picked up lately! 14 large arch pieces in place already, and at least 4 more on the site! Pretty amazing to observe it all coming together!...
