Dude, I hope you get better

On a WTC related note, it's getting ridiculously hard to count the number of floors that are clad

Now we can notice that because the office floors are fully lit up.
Yeah. It didn't even occur to me that it'd look different when it is occupied. Good point.

I just want to see what they end up doing with the base now that the first idea was scrubbed. That is really going to make or break this thing from street level. It'll always look great from a distance, though.

It did..We had a lot of fun with it.. TV News headlines: "End Of The World should happened in 6:00pm..More about it in our next news in 7:00pm" ..
**** yeah, I survived..
2012, here we come..

Those things are nice to make fun of..

You should say to her that you'll sue her and took some money from that female moron in case she don't want to migrate her ass to the court every day.. I lost a lot of my own nerves on such idiots in the traffic..

Glad you're ok..Arms will be fine..

Beautiful picture two posts above me. Unbelievable another two towers and a railway station will be built in front of WTC 4, it seems like such a small space...

By the way, is the curtain wall expected to be halfway the building by December?

Planes flying near that area is a normal, everyday thing. They may look close, but they are on the proper paths to and from JFK, Laguardia and Newark airports.

I am anxious to find out what the new plan is for cladding the base. The concrete work will be finished soon, with no real idea what will cover it.

Excuse my ignorance, but why exactly are those dark corner spots on the first 6 or 7 corners of the glass there for?

And also, will the top 6/7 floors look like that when they're clad as well?
