You know, that may have been my mistake. It may have never been up again after it was taken down. Someone else will need to confirm for you.

This is a screenshot from the PA webcam, but does anyone know why the tower is lit up in pink?

It'd be amazing if someone could get a pic of the view of current WTC progress from jersey city buildings...like one of those penthouses or top floor offices...they've got breathtaking views from that side!

I think that is the color of the net, or protective barriers along the edges of the floors. With the light shining bright behind it, it gives the appearance of pink lighting.

Well that's the thing, this is the first night the tower has been this color, and I check this webcam every day/night.

So I'm wondering if it's for some certain cause, like Breast Cancer or something of the sort.

Edit: Thanks Spectre.

LOL, what a clever spambot. We had this discussion a month ago...!

On topic: 1WTC is looking great, already dominating Lower Manhattan. And imagine it still has roughly 300 feet to go till parapet height! Man this tower will be visible from nearly everywhere once the spire is finished and lit up.

Judging by the older pics, it looks like the same scaffolding. I might be wrong tho.

The northeastern part of the base didn't have scaffolding until now, clearly visible at that pic. Thanks Keepon for posting it.
