Please stop this. That also goes for you, Kanto. Any further posts in this direction will get deleted instantly and might lead to infractions, as some of the latest posts were highly offensive.

(We're using blue color for moderation remarks btw.)

If you feel like discussing the spire vs. height measurement, go there:

Spire vs. roof height measurement - The eternal skyscraper enthusiasts discussion

I just opened this thread to give you people a place for a cultivated discussion of the whole matter.
Please never ever start it in the WDN forums here again, thank you. Now go on with 1WTC.
Thank you sir!

To have a restaurant at the top would require an elevator exclusively for the restaurant... And they don't have one.

If I am correct in finding the photo you mean - its the 9.11 memorial and museum. http://www.911memorial.org/

I'm beginning to love this new WTC. A few months ago I would have said that's impossible, but now I really love it

Yeah they do. The restaurant was "canceled" after the building plans were finalized. The elevator will be put in, along with the floor, and eventually someone will put the restaurant up there. The floor may be some kind of event space for a while, but I think we will see a new Windows on the World in the next 10 years.

I thought the observation deck was going to cover two floors.

he's right though, IMO. I have seen 1WTC from the other angles and just having seen the Jersey City waterfront view 2 weeks ago i totally agree

There are 3 floors up top. 100, 101, and 102. They have been swapped around from this plan below, but there is still an extra floor aside from the Observation Deck.
