The glass is very dirty right now from the all the snow storms. Compare the most recent glass to not so recent glass and you will see. IMO the glass is fantastic.

Before guys start this debate again..It's because of the distance of reflected objects..Closer the reflected object is, waviness is softer..

If we count only Lower Manhattan, I would say 1 WTC will dominate the skyline when it reaches the 62th floor, but if we count all New York, it will dominate until it surpass the Empire State, that will not happen until this baby has a spire.

The ESB only 1,250 feet, 1WTC doesn't need a spire to be taller then it.
