1WTC is a beautiful building, but even as beautiful as it is, The Twin Towers were special, and now I realise how special because as beautiful as 1WTC is I much preferred the Twins! An act of evil madness...............

This didn't just suddenly happen. You must have never seen any renders of the current spire from months ago.

It's not like they aren't lighting the beacon up, it's just some temporary platforms! #9.

On one or two sections of the mast there are two temporary platforms. In that case I'm sure they'll remove at least one.

#10.
