It's funny they will do everything the same time, you won't see that kind of liveliness here in my country.
By the way my excuse for my worse language.

The May 26th episode of Fox News Rise of Freedom talks about the design of the Freedom Tower. The video shows that the spire will be able to change into various colors that include red, white, and blue. Also, the beacon at the top of the spire will flash the letter N in Morse code and will be able to be seen up to 26 miles! I thought that these were just a few fun facts to know. I don't believe this has been talked about before.

Here is a link to the video: http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/rise-o...dom/index.html
Sorry to those who cannot access the video for whatever reason.

Dude, read above. They are redesigning the base's facade. Nobody knows right now, but I'm sure it will be posted as soon as someone does.

Can you produce one of your created renders from the angel of Carlos's long island penthouse view? Would be awesome for all to see on this thread here.
