Because they are orange I am thinking safety.

Right. They are "mushroom caps" required by OSHA to prevent accidental impalement, - a fairly common occurrence I'm told.

Impalement is fairly common? Wow! I would not have guessed that.

"OSHA statistics show that 61% of construction accidents were due to impalement from rebar."

It's a good thing that this contractor wasn't working on the World Trade Center.

The "speed" seems to be about par for the neighborhood - look how long it took to get 29 Linden built - PLUS, there's a bar less than 10 feet feet away, so all things considered..................

Wouldn't count on doing many HDR photo shoots at the site in the near future if I were you.

It's already optimistically penciled-in for a 2017 end-of-construction shoot.

The rest of it will go quicker. Nobody appreciates the amount of work that goes into the foundation and slab.

Week 10.............progress! Looks like there may be a vertical component to this project soon.

The first picture is my usual view - now mostly blocked out by building materials.

Holding my camera as high as I could over the fence, I took the second picture. It's slightly off from my usual angle, but - given the obstructions - this'll have to be the flip book shot for this week.

The last 3 shots are other/better views from different angles.

Week 11.........stagnation

You know those photo puzzles where they show two pictures that look identical and ask you to find six differences between them? Try that on the second photo vs. the same photo from last week.


1. The sun is not shining.

2. A car has been added to the background.

3. There are puddles and the ground is wet.

4. Umm..........there are no shadows? ("Sorry - that's related to #1")


That's it......I got three. I doubt there ARE six.

Anybody see anything else?

If there is a bonus provision in the contract to finish the job early, that money is probably pretty safe sitting in the bank.
