Congratulations to NYC and everyone who helped bring this building to life.

I despise what they did with the antenna, but this is indeed a day to celebrate.

NYC is back in business officially now and another landmark is in place!

CONGRATS NY!!!

I'm pretty open with this kind of stuff, but when I saw it this morning I thought it looked like a minaret, haha. It's an unusual flame looking point. The 'flame wars' will begin I'm sure.

I swear today is such an awesome day yet certain people over on SSP still bitch and moan about the height of the building, certain moderators also just shoot down everyone's opinions/ideas like they know it all so I'm not going to be using that page anymore lol. Anywho this is truly a historic day so proud to be a New Yorker and American.

I have been watching the live webcam here in Australia and now see the sun glint from the pinnacle. A wonderful day for New York and the world. Congratulations...I knew you guys would hang in there : )

The spire is growing on me. Primarily because I underestimated the influence of the communications rings with regard to transitioning from minimalist glass to pure naked structure. It'll look pretty rad at night, I bet.

Dear NBC,

This would've been great coverage if your info bar didn't cover half the damn screen. Thanks for making a cool moment worse!

Sincerely,

History

I watched this live though I don't understand why the very tip top of the spire has the cladding that was supposed to be removed to save a few $million?
