If you go to that link...click the time of day I've outlined and move the slider along to there.... there's something square moves across the screen. Can anyone tell me what it is ?

Looks like it is cigar shaped. Many UFOs encountered by plane pilots and land witnesses are cigar shaped

But I'd say it is just a paper from a chewing gum or something like that which is in fact very close to the torch cam

Do paragliders ( the ones that get towed by boats ) go that high ?

Tomorrow marks the 1 year anniversary of when 1WTC surpassed the ESB. It'd be awesome if the beacon could be placed tomorrow.

That should have been the thread title since the very beginning:

NEW YORK | One World Trade Center (1WTC) | 541m | 1776ft | 104 fl | Delayed

It's a special project, so it deserves a special headline lol.

Maybe they will install it at night to show how the beacon works?

I was one of those guys who would repeatedly say,"Wait guys, wait until the spire construction commences..." But it's starting to seem that as the mast rises so does my dislike for it too... I hope though, everything will change once they take away the extra rings and add-on the beacon portion.

I'm not one of those people who like to rant but this is just plain wrong, a stick on top of the most important building in American history, or even worldwide for what the WTC represents.

An old post I posted in July 2012 that is relevant to this:

(Below was added as of: 4/29/2013)
Late-2012: "It will open in Late 2013"
Now: "It will open in Early 2014"
...To be continued?...

i think most of us wanted the old spire but i have no issue with the new antenna, i think it fits the building better (just me).

Either way the building i like the most is 2 wtc, and if they tweak any design on there ill flip out lol

I agree. I hope I'm wrong, but I think the beacon section of the "spire" is going to make it look top-heavy. I guess we will see soon enough.
