hi, the first 5 sections of wtc antenna are 3.65m (12ft diam), so has internal ladder for access. sections 7-12 measure 2.5m (8ft dia) so pretty sure still has internal ladder access. above sect12 the spire reduces to 2m and 1m.

Burj khalifas spire is alot larger then WTCs,. it has lift access and rooms. up until very high segments
its smallest diametre is still large enough for human access right up til over 800m

I'm really surprised to see so many low rise buildings in NY, I can see that skyscrapers only are located downtown what I didn't really know.

Central Park looks immense...

Amazing photo by the way.

I only wish the entire spire was as thick and heavy looking as the lower part.

A lighter colour would have suited the spire better...

Maybe because it's zoomed in, but it's not terribly thick but not too thin from a distance

Definitely better with the radome, I'm not sure if you mean "massive" as in height but the radome would have added a lot more dominance, & more visible from farther out.
