Even if they're going to put the beacon up now, ST would surpass it in a very short time, so 1WTC won't hold the number three spot for long anyway.

I love this tower and recently got to see it in the flesh. It was my first time in NY and this tower fits in wonderfully.

Congrats to the US and New york the best city in the world imo. I look forward to one day returning.

In my opinion 1WTC stopped being taller than the Shanghai Tower a long time ago and will never again be taller. A thin steel stick is not part of the building.

That's the point that i am making since the media is going on, and on, on how 1 WTC will be the worlds number 3 tallest by pinnacle .

Not true, the mast was engineered along with the rest of the tower, it is -structurally speaking- part of it.

Kanto is talking roof height he's not saying it's just an antennae.

Who cares about which ever building is the tallest? I'm pretty most New Yorkers don't even know about Shanghai tower. We all know ST was going to surpass it.

Well I was recording the earthcam, but then my computer decided to install a windows 8 update at 3:00am! I woke up just now to find out it was lifted and my recording was messed up because of the update -_-

UPDATE: Forgot I was also recording on a 2nd computer... There will be a video up of it

That's like saying some tall guy's head is not part of his body. Just because it's not the same thickness at the top doesn't mean it's not part of the structure. It really is shocking to me that some people have the ability to look at buildings and mentally delete spires. I think I'm in the majority when I say you can't look at the WTC without noticing its spire. I remember as a kid whenever I saw the original spire that's the defining feature I remembered it by. I never thought of it as some flat roof and mentally deleted the spire part.

Why is the live cam pointing towards 3 guys on a roof?

I don't know, but it's a great place for a lunch break:

You can see the other EarthCam camera that gets us the still shots (when it's working properly).

The Shanghai Tower is ugly in my personal opinion anyway. It wouldn't look good in any city besides Shanghai and that includes Dubai. How expensive and elaborate a design is doesn't guarantee an aesthetically pleasing tower.

That guy in green hoodie. That's the one who used to scare shit out of me when appearing on the 432 PA cam while fixing it.
