No way. Some of the lower floors will be turned over to Conde Nast to start building out their offices. But I don't think the first tenants will start moving in till sometime next year. And the observation deck won't be open to the public till early 2015.

The thirteen colonies of America publicly declared independence from Britain on July 4th, 1776.

Correct, Colonies declared independence from Great Britain on that date mentioned above. The modern US government wasn't created until 1787 with the completion of the Constitution Convention.

Awesome pictures! I seriously cannot wait until the spire is lit permantly!

Only on special occasions. It will be lit white most of the time.

His father's new office.

Another picture of the father's office, one year later.


Dad and my sister on the 58th floor of the North Tower in the World Trade Center. April 1974. New York por wavz13, en Flickr

This is pretty cool, the father took those pieces of ceiling of the WTC back in 1973, and installed them in the library of their house, the panels are still in his parents house in Milford CO. (the picture is from last year)


Quite possibly the only remaining piece of the original World Trade Center North Tower still in use and in good condition. (and it’s in my parent’s house, no less!) New York. 2012 por wavz13, en Flickr

The guy has more than 400 vintage pictures of NY, some taken by him during the 70' and 80', and some older, like this one showing the buildings that stood in the site of the WTC in 1966.

West Street, West Side Highway and abandoned 19th century warehouses at World Trade Center site before construction started on the WTC. 1966. New York por wavz13, en Flickr

As a bonus, a more recent pic of the New WTC.

Wow! Really nice pics and a cool story, you should try and get some more of these photos and post them in 'THE MEGA WTC Picture Thread' for us all to see!
