This is why I hate you, bigreach... You keep on ruining the WTC and ST threads for everybody with your random psychotic outbursts. I've sais this before: find another occupational therapy!

yup. plus many of the floors are open-plan style, so light can flow freely over the entire floor.

The entire WTC will feature this as well. All these new towers will stick out like sore thumbs at night, at least for now. Same goes for all the west side office projects.

Mechanical glass is complete on the northeast side and looks almost complete from where I'm standing. Anyone know what the cranes were doing last night?

A comet named ISON will be coming near the Earth in the fall of 2013. If it survives its passage near the sun (within 1 solar diameter of the star) it could provide spectacular viewing.

Here is a photo of comet Hale-Bopp over the original Twin Towers in 1987 [EDIT: others have pointed out that the actual date was 1997]. With the ubiquity of today's cameras and potentially an even brighter comet, we may be in for a visual treat, even in lower Manhattan.

Plus 60 Wall Street is in the picture. That building was completed in 1989.

Wow... that's total BS... where did you get that info from? I can tell you for a fact that 200 West does not have LEDs to light their office floors. Oh and TWICE as bright? Keep pulling stuff out of your ass... next will be your intestines if you're not careful.
