I have a spire question. Since the antenna is going to be encased in that spire, does that mean there won't be a blinking light at the top? The ESB antenna (and the old north tower one) has that little light at the tip that blinks every few seconds or so. I hope I'm not being terribly unclear, I'm not savvy on technical terms. I've seen it depicted on the nighttime render, but we know the renders can be a little inaccurate sometimes.

There will be a beacon at the top, and it will flash the letter N in Morse code (for New York).

This Morse code thing sounds rather silly to me

Wow, the glass is really beautiful! I was a bit sceptical at the beginning but now I'm quite positive that it will look great. Also, I can't wait till the cladding reaches the higher floors so we can see the sunlight reflections in future skyline shots.

Okay, I know that it should be topped out at the end of this ear or at the beginning of next year, but I'd like to know when should it be fully clad with glass?

"I am roughly 3 miles away"

Um, yeah, glad you have you back Carlos. A little idea came up while you were gone. See, this three miles away turns out to be a bit far.

Soooooooo, it was thought that maybe you should move to the recently completed Beekman. That way we get closer shots of WTC1 and WTC2 and 3 when they go up.

As an incentive, we were going to give you a nice telephoto lense as a house warming gift.

What do you think?

LOL Can you imagine photos that close with an 800mm lens?
