Dude, it's fine. I've already come to accept that I'm a loser and have no social life.

Almost makes me wish they had built a stadium at hudson yards instead of towers so they could stop this false advertising, almost.

just before the beacon appeared to be blinking along with the FAA lights. it looks like it's also acting as a warning light. If it was the beacon i'm guessing this will be the extent of what we'll see until the cranes are down.

Not NJ bashing so please don't take this the wrong way I have friends in Jersey! But NJ has been living off NY's image for what seems like an eternity now. Even the most famous NJ born star Frank Sinatra sang about being jealous of NY! I think people understand though that it's more of a land issue. NJ has more room for stadiums. They can't build east of Manhattan because there are 2 boroughs (BK and QNS) which are congested. So the easiest thing for the teams to do is build just west of the city in Jersey.

It gets kind of annoying having to say NY/NJ...it's really a NY thing just taking place in NJ. Both teams have clear NY roots. What always confused me is how people in NJ totally forget about big cities of their own like Hoboken, Paterson, Jersey City, Newark, etc. I would feel very weird living in NY my whole life but essentially acting like I represent a city in NJ. I guess I'm a border freak. To me NY is NY and NJ is NJ.

Beautiful tower. The windows are only a couple weeks away from completion! I love how to tower shimmers, shines, and reflects from different angles!

Once 1WTC is complete on the outside... We will have a 3-6 month gap on when the next tower rises (3WTC).... What will we do during that gap?

Not really looking forward to see Tower 3 rise. Don't get me wrong, I like that tower, it just doesn't excite me like Tower 1 did or how Tower 2 will.

Tower 2, looks the best of all in my opinion, if I had my say BUILD #2 next, if you gotta scrap one, scrap 3, (although I'd love to see em all built) but 2 just looks like an architectural GEM... C'mon Durst, PA, build 2, leave 3 capped.. Build 2 to the original height, That would be what most of US probably would rather see.

It's all about the market. I'm pretty sure that NJ residents DO get annoyed that their state doesn't get represented in national events like these despite being hosted in NJ. But they don't have a choice... NYC dominates the market in the area and its the economic and cultural center of the New York metropolitan region.

I'm a New Yorker but I've grown used to this false advertising and I'm sure the residents of the garden state hate it as much as we do. Blame the media and the marketers trying to make money off New York's popularity not the residents of NJ.

Bottom line is NYC is what holds this whole region together. I guess it comes with the territory...
