Hope they put up more cladding. It's really hard to appreciate it's height when all you see is hundreds of feet of black net. I see this everyday at work in TriBeCa, and you feel like theres no movement at all - although there is

It does have a taller roof height by like 14 metres.

These columns look rather tall to be just 1,240'. I honestly think the Tower has finally surpassed the ESB but I need more pictures to be certain. If it has surpassed it, then it is up to floor 101.

Yeah sure! Just let me spend $200 to rent a boat, buy some gas, and take it about a mile past the Statue Of Liberty so I can take that picture.

These columns do look especially tall. I think this is right. Can anyone else confirm?

so forgive if i might be mistaken, from what you showed everybody and I, this Tower is up to the obervation floors. which means that this tower is 90 percent to the roof top.

Since we are agreeance which I am very happy for, then from what the constrcution diagrams show, that floor 101 is taller then the Empire State Building which mean Tower 1 is King of the eastern sea board and of NYC.
