And for those who want a better view of skyline...

Sometimes they reposition the camera so that it faces the Verrazano bridge.

comms ring looks complete, except for what looks (possibly) to be a portion on the north-west side:

Guys, I figured out how to get it working. I'm going to upload all the 30 second clips independently and also post a compilation video next weekend with close up shots of the rings and spire. I already have an idea of rendering from the perspective of a bird swooping between the stilts of the rings.

The fully cladded building looks incredible. Really a wonder to behold

good to see progress being made on the west side's base cladding. The southern side looks amazing with those fins extended, it makes the base seem more dynamic instead of it just being a glassy wall
