The support rods for the entrance glass gladding are also installed now.

No structural work on the spire, but they're putting in a staircase along side it. There's also been some progress with the cladding.

You can also see the beginning of the communication ring in Ken's photo.

Thanks for the photo Ken! With all the cams down, pics like this are even more valued now. Keep'em coming!

Not sure how much more of the spire they can erect without the support cables and the base bolted down. Weren't they waiting for the platform to cure before "tightening the bolts"...?

If they need the temporary platform to install spire parts, the platform is blocking the communications ring, and the spire needs guy wires to proceed, how will they work this out???

That's not a radome, those are metal panels, this is the only section that will have anything resembling an architectural cladding. I wonder if any one still thinks of the mast as small?

The spire is just fine without the Kevlar guys, they just add more support in extreme winds and seismic events. They will be the very last structural additions to the mast. too bad we can't see the parts at the north side of the base...

When will they start cladding the West side of the Tower where the elevator used to be? It looks like the Tower has a giant zipper. Would be nice to see that cladded up.

Everyone has pride for their city where they grow up, so they are biased, but the awe-inspiring thing about NYC is that we grow up fully realizing it may very well be the greatest city in the world with no doubt the most iconic skyline ever. It's not because we are biased, it's because it's true. That alone gives you an amazing feeling. I always feel like I hit the lotto being born in the NYC suburbs. I can drive 45 minutes to the NYC line in Queens or I can drive 45 minutes to the Hamptons or 20 minutes to Robert Moses, or walk to a local beach. It's the best of both worlds.

One thing people from outside the NYC area don't know is that many people especially younger ones in college will meet for the first time, ask where each other is from, and the closer to NYC you are from, the cooler you are. That's how much NYC means to locals...if you live 50 miles from Manhattan like me, someone who lives 20 miles away will make fun of me and they will get more respect. I know it sounds weird but it's true. It's hard to explain to a non-New Yorker, but having NYC gives us a sort of cocky, "we know we are famous" kind of pride. Just seeing how many movies are shot in the city, how much history it has, how much it has influenced culture including art, fashion, music, etc. it is just amazing when you take a step back and think about it. NYC is also so big that even living 50 miles from Manhattan and 35 miles from Queens, I still see NYC taxis on the LIE all the time near where I live. Even that can be exciting!
I agree. I live around 22 miles from NYC in Rockland County, and once in a while I see NYC taxis all the way up here! I just love that. I am so proud to see the skyline every weekend traveling to relative's houses. I am proud to live so close to NYC, such an amazing place.
