If something has made me happy after me having suffered the scratching-out of the radome, it is that they celebrate July 4th in such a way It will be a very beautiful day for New York.

After being a VERY long time lurker her at skyscrapercity and seeing the progress of 1 WTC from the very beginning I can't say how good it is to finally see it early complete plus how the information some of you guys have s simply incredible!! Being around 10 when 9/11 happened I can tell you all how the tragedy affected my generations upbringing from the relatively safety of the 90s!!! However I am also pleased to say that I will be going to New York in December this year and hope to see a very big progression on the WTC site including 2 and 3!! I have a panasonic tz-30 camera which I have just purchased and am wondering whether this will be adequate for the city??
Thanks and I hope to share more on the word trade center with you!

Yes, I can't model the dust and other particulate that will be illuminated in the air. The best analogy that comes to mind is a light house.

Thatīs Exchange Place in Jersey City. One subway stop via PATH from the WTC site. It also houses the famous Katyn Memorial, which was shown in many WTC updates, and close to the Goldman Sachs HQ there is a steel beam from the original WTC towers. Itīs heavily bent and decorated with flags, writing, stuffed toys etc. The Plaza from the Grand Hyatt has a sun clock and offers spectacular views over LM and midtown. :-)

I'm in the process of uploading a rough draft/test video render to youtube. I will soon attempt to use Vray to produce a 1080p 30FPS animation of the rings and spire, but that is assuming I can get my first Vray animation to work. I've looked at tutorials and examples online. Very few exterior animations like the one I am making are even half the length. I'm going to start pre-calculations and hope for the best.
