They need to get as much done as possible before the inevitable blanket stop-work orders arrive. At least Vanderbilt is still ahead of schedule and so stands to lose less money from delays.

Here in Italy the government is about to shut down all building sites.

Yeah, the construction industry is exempt for now, but that can surely change. In the timeline of these things, a shutdown of a few months won’t matter - we’ve had longer. But obviously one more in the chain of people’s personal lives. But at the end if the day, lives are more inportant.

^Too bad I can't get close enough to bribe someone on site for a little piece of that steel. A small piece the size of a hand, or a couple of rivets? Relic! Or get a somewhat larger piece and take it to a swordsmith. A sword or knife made from a piece of a skyscraper's steel would be all kinds of awesome.

Compared with this pic...when we get down to it, I expect a similar view of the rails below 270.
