Yes yesterday was sunny in NY but with gale-force winds. The wind really did a number on the flag. At least they've removed it; hope the can replace it with something similar (and better secured, next time!)

Is that scaffolding on the SW lobby corner? Maybe it's in preparation for the base cladding...

As far as I know they still yet to find a replacement glass for a base since the one you see in rendering was cancelled.

They don't need to replace it, there's no reason to have a flag randomly hanging on the building. I could understand for 9/11, but not for every day.

I can finally see the top part of the crane from my living room window! I used to be able to see the antenna of the North Tower peeking above an apartment building a couple of blocks away, now I guess I'll be able to see several of the top floors as well as the spire of 1 WTC.
