I like this towers crown, should look great when its finished. What are New Yorkers opinions on the new WTC and the 3 towers that will flank it by Foster, Rogers and Maki by the way?

PS. New York looks bloody cold in that photo... it hit 18C in London last week.. do you still get snow in NYC in late March?

theyre going up on the east side which is the opposite side of whats shown.

we got our last blast of snow a few days ago, its gettin a hell of alot warmer here and the snows melting. that one day it snowed it was 75 two days before. so it pretty much came outta nowhere. NYC is done with winter.

This thing wins the "cheapest way to supertall status" award. Nevertheless, its a good addition to NY, and I find it attractive regardless.

Taken last week. I really thought this tower looked much nicer in person. I was impressed and I think it's a nice addition to a rather stumpy area of town.

Awesome! Thanks for the pics TowersNYC!! Although I wish they used sheet glass for the crown instead of rods. It'd look much better during the day and probably even better than the rods will at night!
