Guys. I have the odd feeling they will top out the tower on 4th July, and the WEEKS that have to pass until than are the WEEKS the PA mentioned in the article. That says, that the final piece of the spire, will rest on the platform for WEEKS, before it will installed. It would be topped out on America´s 237 year of existance.

Can't really blame Durst so much as the PA. If I were so lucky to get the PA to make such a dunderheaded agreement with me, I'd probably take advantage of it too.

No building ever gets completed as the architects originally envision. At least they got 90%. Too bad the rest had to come off the top. Still, not being a New Yorker, I don't have to look at it on a daily basis. So I'll get over it.

I really doubt they would hold it up there for that long. Would be horribly inneficient money wise. I'd say those weeks reffered to the antenna errection as a whole

I wonder how long before the antenna becomes functional for broadcast TV? Probably looking at mid 2014 for that?

I was wrong!
They didn't install cables to the spire but to the white crane. (Maybe that's why they moved the beacon)

I took a screenshot of the piece of the communication ring they are installing.

No way it's happening tomorrow with a 90% chance of rain. The winds will be too strong too.

Forecast:

The spire has nothing to broadcast Tv planned for it as of now. Now the communications ring, That is a different story. I would guess before the end of the year, mid 2014 at the latest
