I saw the tower this weekend and two things stood out.

The first is, the spire has to be painted white. It just looks so out of place the way it is.

And the second is, the building looks much better from certain angles than it does from others.

Look at the parapet on the left, looks just like the top of the original towers

It does! That's what makes me love this building even more, it really pays so much homage to the original North Tower.

Oh wow! I never would have noticed that. It's like looking into a window of the past!

I went up to my roof, maybe 15-20 minutes ago, 1-4 WTC were the only buildings glowing in the sunset. I wish I had a camera to capture the moment. It was surreal and beautiful.

Great pictures everyone.

That photo is surreal. I'm not much a fan of sunset shots, but that one is amazing!

When I saw the Manhattan Brigde in Tom Clancy's The Division at Ubi's conference, I thought: "Please, show us 1WTC!".
Yeah!

Nope. There is still one crane left, and it is perfectly aligned with the spire in that picture so it is kind of hard to make out.
