From my roof on 57th Street with a 200mm lens - about 4 miles away as the crow flies!

Very unlikely, I think.

My guess is that it will be lit up in a ceremony in a special day, likely by Obama pressing a button, and in a significant date, like july 4th or more probably september eleventh.

Can't believe it's finally topped out... It reminds so many steps of its building!

Yes, but it doesn't mean that the will lit up then. As I said, I think they would choose a special date, with a ceremony, with the president pressing the switch (as they did with ESB back in 1930 or 31) But That's just my guess or maybe I'm expressing what i'd do.
