Yeah, but why would that matter....it's gonna be covered by the glass anyway. My guess is it was applied and didn't pass inspection and it will (obviously) need to be re-applied before cladding can continue.

I really want to know if they are doing anything special with the lobby. Yes I know it is going to be big, but are we going to get a mural, art installations, anything?

Yeah, I think it's safe to say we missed an opportunity on rebuilding the twins.

That photo really confuses me. On the left side, 40 Wall Street is peeking over HSBC Bank Building's shoulder, but on the right it's missing. Also, in the back right corner, 70 Pine Street and the Woolworth Building are making out, but 70 Pine Street's gone on the left.
