I can't wait until that ugly gap in the base cladding is covered, above the entrance glass.
Certain times of the day when the light is just right, it reflects off the glass with a light greenish tint.

It looks like it breaks the spirit of this city. At least the spirit Hollywood has put in our minds of the ol' good New York.

Yeah well we aren't that New York anymore, thanks to 9/11. Also, this building is very New York IMO, I feel in future movies and generations when the complex is complete the Trade Center will be the icon of NY again.

It's good to know that soon NY will have a new icon like the old WTC was... This city, like any other, is responsible for everything we know about skyscrapers. And this reputation shall remain! When all the works in the new WTC complex finish I'll try to be one of the first Brazilians to schedule a visit to Manhattan. I can't wait to see all this complex done.

Regards from Rio.

I should say, New York is the teacher who bequeathed all her knowledge regarding what one has to be - New York first taught to shape up the skyline, New York made everyone realize that impossibles could be achieved and New York, thusly, should always remain at the top of the chart....
New York is simply unbeatable!
I love NY!

It seems the ugly gap in the base cladding I was referring to has finally been covered!

Next logical date to light the beacon and mast would be on Sep 11.
