Happy Paddy's Day everyone from Ireland.

Is the parade going to go anywhere near the WTC site, or is it just in around Midtown?

Have a great day and don't get to smashed. God bless the Irish

Why was it yesterday? Paddy's Day it today, not yesterday.

They held it yesterday, so that on Sunday religious observance can be held.

There will be a restaurant as part of the 3 level OB deck. Stay tuned, perhaps something will be announced at Wed. PA Board meeting. The RFP process has been going on for a number of months now.

Well that's good news at least...of course not like windows but will there at least be something you can sit down and eat at rather just finger foods?

Did any of y'all have a chance to experience a meal in the Windows of the World restaurant? If so, what was it like?

It must have been an amazing experience to be up there eating with NYC serving as the backdrop!

Seems wasteful to have so many mechanical floors, up so high instead of rentable space. I wonder if these floors will have lights to make it look like the rest of the floors or will they be dark stripes at night?

Out of this world. We used to have happy hour at Greatest Bar every Friday after work. Take the stairs up from our offices a few floors below, get tanked, flirt with the cute waitresses, and enjoy the view/food. One of those "once in a lifetime" experiences I'll never forget.

Here's a question I have for Otie or PMad (or anyone that might know the answer). Our floors in the original 1WTC (93-100) were joined together with a private staircase that ran between our floors. They cut through the floor plate in the core to construct the stairs. Will tenants in the new buildings be permitted to make such modifications?
