I'll believe it when the PA says it. I can't find any official sources on this information.

The reflection looking south is even better.

Me to Kanto, what a great month indeed!

Is it just me or does the World Financial Center have a heap of bulbs that need replacing on the roof of each of its buildings? Or is that how its meant to look?

It's been like that for quite a while. Another fun fact: the WFC's roofs are made of copper, and were brightly copper colored before they were oxidized (green).

Hmm it would be good if as part of their renovation plans they could replace them with LED strips that change colour etc as its a bad look with all those blown bulbs and that is an interesting fact :O

I hope some major tenants are found for the other buildings soon... I wonder if they have approached any of the former tenants of the two towers? I know they have all moved to new offices etc and are probably reluctant to return but you never know. They should approach them even if they aren't looking for space and say the WTC wants you back.

Hi!

Very nice photos!!

I'm french and I will be visiting NYC from march 22 to march 29. (and I'm so excited !) It seems that the completion is coming.

Of course I guess that the building won't be completed at the end of march but do you think that the construction will reach the top during my stay?
