Either they did or it's just the suns reflection..... Check Earthcam/Kpittv cams, it appears glass on the southern-west side was removed

Going out of school yesterday with a 35 lb. backpack on, some gusts around 50 m.p.h. almost blew me over, no joke.

Proud of Manhattan great city and spirit. The Freedom Tower looks like one of the most iconic buildings in the world already.

Looks like the stormiest conditions were confined within 20-35 miles of the city, 40-60 mph gusts are still occurring here and in Newark/NYC

temp boards to close slots

I think it is just temp boards to close the slots while they work on the floors. If you look at the pictures from a couple days ago it looks clearer what they are doing.

If you check out the KPI memorial web cam and zoom in, it appears that the lower portion of the base has some type of black cladding.

Noticed these shiny strips were put on/behind the black covering at the very bottom of the base. From the kpitv cams

Why didn't the make the whole spire as thick as sections 1-5. If they did that it would look more spirish and less like a antenna.

It looks as though moisture got inside the KPI 7wtc cam and is now obliterating most of the image How long now before this is fixed????

From the KPI TV cam called "Memorial Pools" it looks like something has been delivered that looks like panels to me - though it's difficult to discern yet, so I'm not sure

Btw has anyone noticed that the west side external hoist has come down a lot in the last time?

I think you're right oli83. I was down at the site this morning and here are a few things I noticed.

1. West external elevator is coming down right now.

2. Bottom portion of the south entrance being installed.

3. Wind it blowing out of the south west so they are installing curtain wall on the north east mechanical floors.

4. There was a big delivery of materials (skids) at the base which look to be metallic in nature. I can only assume it is the base curtain wall panels (not glass fins).
