    Lots of new steel. Note the large curved piece near the movable crane

    Very nice. I just hope its neighbor doesn't get "capped" at 7 floors and that its other neighbor gets built in my lifetime.

    The crane has moved up near that huge piece of steel. I wonder if it is going to pick it up now?

    Looks like they have some steel in place that will be part of that inner balcony.

    Also, temporary steel with some kind of decking being placed now... new crawler or extra room for unloading?...

    ^ I was thinking the same. Its a very wide pad but the steel holding it up isn't very large, i'd say for unloading. It will be interesting to see what it's used for

    I believe those slabs will have something to do with escalators.

    On edit: no they will not. They are much higher than I first thought.

    The roller got a boom extension and the heavy lift head was taken off last night

    They are starting to remove the shoring under those huge arches at the West end of the hub.

    Looks like they're starting to remove all of the temporary supports so that it can rest on the trusses and the supercolumns.

    Is this going to be some kind of ramp?

    I noticed it's connected to a street...

    I believe that is level with the street. It is not a ramp, the most likely explanation is that the the angle of the camera is tricking the eye. The area around the 'wings' is actually quite plain and should be completed quickly.

    Those red plates are crane pads, to get an idea of the size here is a photo, the pad is the thing that says "DCM erectors"

    Near the top of that^ photo you can see they poured half of the concrete slab forming the west end of the oculus. Just beyond that arc is the top of the grand staircase which descends beneath the subway box to the station mezzanine level with the ribbed ceiling.
