That's the backside of WTC3, the transit hub, and WTC2. If that helps...

They better not be claustrophobic. Yikes. At least the ceilings are tall.

I'm looking forward the big opening. When I know exactly when and where, I'm going towait, buy a ticket on the airport and fly to NY. And then, I will take 20000 photos .

This is going to be a moment, where I HAVE TO BE there.

Thank you! It looks 10 times better than previous.
I really like this photo. It's, well..., yeah everything is perfect. The light, the angle, just everything. I think, it's an example for a perfect photo

Me too. Even though I already have a family I still didn't give up on my dream of living in the US. If I would ever get there the first place I'd visit would be 1WTC

I think so, too. I've a family and since I'm a child, I wished I live in the US. I don't know why, but it is how it is. Yes, and I'm sitting still in Vienna, and waiting, that time passes.
Maybe in two years...
I hope it's going to get true

A little bit detailed info about the new base glass, but still nothing visual..

Quote:
Above the blast wall and the lobby is a layer of infrastructural floors reaching to 57 meters above ground; this lower section will be covered in reflective glass. “The idea is to make it lively. The architects didn’t want it to look so dead at the bottom of the building,” Tollner says. The original plan to sheath the base in prismatic glass fell through earlier this year after millions of dollars failed to produce a satisfactory glass product. “This new design is completely different,” Tollner says. “It’s going to have glass fins, and they will have a very nice reflective quality. They’re not going to be completely flat against the building, and they’ll have a frosted texture behind. When they light up the building from within you’ll get some interesting patterns.”

I'm curious as to what it means by "glass fins"...

I dont understand that some people find the spire "too tall" ... the proportions are great IMO...
