Hey guys, how are you? I must say that the tower is looking really nice and i am happy to see that in a few months of time we will finally see a exterior finish of this tower that we have all been waiting for in years.

Now i would also like to report to the admins and mods that the earthcam skyline shot of tower 1 and the WTC is once agin frozen from about 4 days ago. so is there any way you can demand earthcam as admins and mods to fix the problem. Thank you so much

Have you ever had a bottle of beer in your life? If so, was the bottle green, brown or maybe it was just Reflective. Glass....for crying out loud.

The glass panels of the base have a slightly different tint then the rest of the curtain wall. They're visibly greener....or we're just all ignorant!

Here is a shot I took on Easter. The only green is the reflections of the World Financial Center Roof.
