Don't fret, it was indeed intentional.

That image is absolutely beautiful Chapelo. The reflections on the bay are blinding!

Wow!

I wonder if they'll finish off that facade by this Friday. I hope so!

Also, according to NYBOY's photos, it appears they've just begun the NE facade as well.

That's right, it is also visible in the videos of NYBOY1975.

"Reach For the Sky"

Ok,I'm deciding to post a different one this time.This time,a post that shows the great inspiration One World Trade Center has already given to many people,people like this artist

Quote:
The fig tree is there to represent our natural world, and as it transforms into the skyscraper, it becomes a symbol of humanity. The skyscraper is a resting place for humanity, and a metaphor for our desire to constantly reach higher than everyone else in the world. The fig tree it grows from, can be seen as much the same. They are home to an infinite number of animals and indeed other plants, and they are some of the tallest trees in the rainforest. It is a symbol that no matter how far we think we progress, we will always have a connection to our natural world.

A little photoshop work, and now it finally makes sense! This makes me really excited for 2WTC.

This is only for fun. I'm aware this will never happen, so please don't flame me!

I'm not trying to be a party popper but did anyone see this in the Daily News about how the construction workers at 1WTC disrespects the building from head to toe. It's unbelievable and saddens me to a core that they go on TV and express how the building is such an inspiration for them and America when behind scenes they mark up the whole tower with racist, sexist and just plain old insults that no one should bare to see. How can the Port Authority over see this tower everyday and not see this and do anything about it. These workers have no respect for the victims on 9/11 or the site. This and people throwing garbage in the pools that was reported last summer is just ridiculous and makes us look real bad at the end especially to the worldwide audience. Now it makes me think its inmates from prisons across the country that help built this building cause they treat it like a jail house. See, this is the difference between America & China. China 3 floors per day while here is ignorance on every steel, wood, marble & floor per day.
