Why would that be a problem? You usually go 'inside a building to see whats 'inside'

Not necessarily. It could be an architect's choice to have glass that allows people to see what's inside from the outside. And actually, if you look at the initial renders for the museum, the curtain wall seems a lot less refelctive.

That has nothing to do with the reflectivity of the glass. Try actually reading the posts you reply to.

Your suppose to be able to see the arches, from the outside.

Yeah, I guess this is only possible at night when the glass isn't ridiculously reflective. I haven't seen it in person yet, but from what I've seen in pictures, it just looks like a mirror in the daytime.

I wonder when they will remove the fences and make it just like any other park.

Maybe they expand the fenced area a little bit when the construction on the northeastern part (Transit hub) is completed.

As long as the vehicular security center and 1 WTC is not (at least almost) finished and West Street realigned to its future setup, I don't think they will remove any of the fences..

But you have to think positive, when all the construction is done, we cannot enjoy watching the rebuilding any longer

Here are some pics I took on my visit to the Memorial on Friday. It was a great and moving experience. It is a must do if you are in NYC. I will also be posting more pics in the related threads as well over the next day or so.

An interesting thing happened to me when I started to take pictures of the vent structures. I was detained by security and the NYPD. Once I explained my knowledge of the structures and my purpose for taking the photos (to share them with you all here at SSC) and not just taking pictures of the security cameras I was free to take more. They were very courteous and understanding.

Enjoy!

Out of all the times i've been to ground zero, this is the first time I've been to The World Financial Centre.... gotta say, it was amazing. crowds of people, people sharing stories, etc... It's hard to describe what you see from the windows though... you're in complete awe. a lot of emotion down there.
"this is where it all went down"

Windows at The World Financial Centre:

Unfortunately, I couldn't get a ticket to the Memorial Park, but I'll be sure to reserve one well in advance for my next visit.

some more:

Hi pnapp1, those are some of the best photos of the memorial that I've seen yet. It's great to see the close-up shots of the vent structures from various angles.

Did you notice if any of the trees appear to be in bad shape? From the web cams some appeared to start turning brown back in July and many looked to be quite brown by the middle of August. But I never see much brown on visitors' photos, nor any mention from visitors, so perhaps the web cams exaggerate it. Workers did replace a tree (blue arrow) near the SW corner of the south pool a month or two ago after it lost its leaves. Its neighbor (red arrow) isn't looking good from far away:

Hopefully the browning trees are just changing color early due to stress and will do better next year. If some try to hold dead leaves through the winter, then that will be a sign that those are in trouble. The only one that really stands out in various visitors' photos is the one on the left:
