Exciting day at the World Trade Center slowly coming to a close. Lighting hit the beacon's finish nicely late afternoon.

Looks like a heart warming experience.

Can't wait until next Wednesday.

1WTC is simply beautiful to my eyes. Seeing the final spire pieces go on is such an amazing sight and I can't help but smile!



There were compromises made to get to this point but that is exactly what had to be done. Some complain about design, others about the chosen antenna but what matters is that this building actually exists. I'm very proud to be an American and a New Yorker.

It still makes me sad how little known 1WTC still is... Here in Denver not many people know that they are rebuilding the WTC

Their character was the simplicity that accompanied their design. The Sears Tower and the original WTC are prime examples of that era's architecture and few people consider them "boring". However, it really just comes down to opinion as I've stated at least 3 times now. I like WTC's angular features and dislike the Shanghai's tower's lopsidedness. Some people may feel vice versa. Variety is the spice of life and it would be a shame if everyone was the same.

It would be cool if a flag could go up there. Here is an example of whats possible, 600 feet over Baltimore. I'm sure there's one higher somewhere in NYC...

I think that with the antenna uncovered over time they will waste more money trying to maintain, for example, ice build up and freezing rain during cold seasons, the radome fiberglass would have protected the interiors of the antenna from those extreme conditions, removing the radome all together was really a dumb idea.

That's a shame...almost everyone I know who lives within 50 miles or so of NYC and frequently goes in there or works there takes a picture. It makes sense that it has more local relevance, but it's no doubt representing all of America at its best! I remember driving down the LIE at like exit 22 in Queens westbound seeing 1WTC slowly rise just above the horizon. Now it's probably monstrous from the same spot! From St. John's University there is a big tower with a starbucks at the top where you can look out from huge windows with great skyline views. Nothing like getting coffee watching WTC progress!

The one on the top of ESB is (I think) the higher flag in NYC.

I can't agree on that. Go anywhere such as Flickr or even Instagram, and people all across the country, even the entire world, have their eyes set on the new building
Maybe little known by the people you have mentioned it to, but popular on a wide scale. Everyone on the east coast knows well about it
