Ironworkers have rule not to work when it's too "wet"..Security reasons, and of course, they can't weld wet steel..

On the other hand, talking about shiny..

You mean the base? I don't see anything different going on down there that would make me think they're going to clad it soon.

We've already gotten plenty of rain, fog, and wind during the Spring and Summer seasons so Fall shouldn't be that different. They only have 4 office floors left to go (or 6, depending on whether they decide to make 89 & 90 office floors) then the mechanical floors start and if the weather does get bad it could slow things down once the office floors are completed. December, January, and even February would be the slowest months for construction and that's exactly what happened for 2011 so hopefully 2012 will be different.

Actually, it's not smog which is a combination of smoke and fog, originally...........New York City does not have a bad air pollution problem especially for it's size,compared to some other cities in the US and there arent that many of them that do outside of California . Of course there are days in the summer and fall that do but by and large the weather changes so much and the wind regular enough that there isn't China like smog issues in NYC

Might be that you're right and it's just fog. NY doesn't have really bad problems with polluted air and I don't wanna imagine, how ugly would NY be, if there wouldn't be the Central Park.

Anyone know what's going on with the corners of the building? Seems like glass is missing.

Another point, wet steel is slippery. It's very dangerous to walk a thousand+ feet up in high winds on wet surfaces. Most workers have tie-offs for safety, but not the guys who have to climb up the columns. And climbing a wet column is damn hard.

At this photo (the one which is taken at the field), the skyline looks two times bigger than it is in reality...
The angle is the main thing , if you wanna take such a great photo
