Vertigo-Inducing Photo Taken From 4 World Trade Center This Morning
This morning Redditor Talwin posted a photo that made our feet sweat, showing 1WTC (with the complete spire in place) from 4 World Trade Center. We contacted the poster who took the vertigo-inducing photo, and he's an ornamental iron worker for Local Union 580, "part of the crew hanging glass on Tower 4." So it's probably good he isn't afraid of heights—he told us, "I don't get vertigo... I'm abnormally comfortable with heights. I'm always in a harness though, so that's kind of cheating.
"

I was one of the many people who were sad to see the radome go. But I'm not gonna lie, this T/O has converted me. I LOVE THE SPIRE. There, I said it. It's going to look so beautiful once all the crap around it is gone. I love how skinny and tall it is. Majestically towering above the skyline.

Yeah, I see what you mean. Don't you think it looks a bit like a cobra as well?

Come on guys, I'm trying to drink some beer here and it's kind of hard if I keep spitting it out of my nose from laughter

Overall, i can't be more unimpressed by the new wtc.
Get out of this forum if you hate the new world trade center.

Nice video which shows the progress until the placement of the spire.
Might have been posted here before. But this thread has such a huge amount of posts I can't look back all those pages.

On the Earth Cam it looks like the LED light on the top of the mast has been shut off. Is that correct? If so, why?
