As CBS2’s Hazel Sanchez reported, people from all over the world have been watching the nest built high above a 50 foot radio tower.
The baby ospreys popped from their eggs after being carefully nursed by their proud parents for the last month.
“Ya know a lot of people are telling us it’s the best reality show ever,” Paul Henry said.
Henry created the live webcam, ospreyzone.com, which has been fascinating viewers far and wide. more... 6/26/2015

Timelapse: The 11-year construction of One World Trade Center (citymetric.com)
Soon after the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center, New York's Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, vowed that the site would be rebuilt. And by rebuilt, he didn't mean a squat museum or memorial site. No, as part of his speech he promised: "The skyline will be made whole again".
Now, finally, it has been. On the Ground Zero site there now stands a new tower, which reaches the same height (1,368 feet) as the tallest of the original pair. The spire reaches up to 1,776 feet, a height which references the 1776 Declaration of Independence. more... 6/2/2015

Marking the opening of One World Observatory, a lookout post on floors 100-102 of the new World Trade Center, EarthCam has released a sweeping video of the building's 11-year construction. Although many people wanted a speedier build-up, as a rebuke to those who destroyed the building in the first place, the project got bogged down in delays, design reconfigurations, budget disputes, and lawsuits. It took almost a year and a half after 9/11 before the city even decided on a rebuilding plan, and then construction finally got underway in October of 2004. Now, 11 years later, this video condenses that slow, steady progress into a two-minute salute to rebuilding. more... 6/1/2015
