another platform is being dismantled. This is going quicker than I expected with the heat. At least one per day

Unfortunately they cannot. The communications equipment will radiate too much radiation, essentially making it hazardous for people.

I wish they would have at least painted it white so it somewhat would match the original renders.

That antenna is just horrible.



It was my last favorite building from the site after 3,4 and 2 but with that antenna I like it even less.

The communication rings couldn't be used as an observatory also due to the fact they are going to be storing dishes and equipment on the rings themselves I believe, as dictated in the picture located on the first post of this thread.

I look now and see how this space has become into a complete inmature playground, where newcomers had flooded it with nonsense talk and vanished the enthusiasm once existed.

For the grown ups seeking a more serene, elemental conversation, please visit the WNY thread.

Though I joined a little late, but I'd been following this thread pretty far in the past. It seems, the breathtakingly deleterious trolls like the one, discussing the Shard and so on have just seized the flavor this thread had.
I'm there with you LAF.

May not be the best idea to join a forum with so many off topic discussions especially ones talking bad about us involved with the building "not getting it done fast enough", but oh well let's see how this goes. Guy wires scheduled to start in the next few weeks so look out for that. Also, as of now the crane is said to be coming down a week or so before the 12th anniversary.

The "render" VS "what is now".
The spire painted white would be a dream come true!!!

I remember when I first joined. I joined late for how long I have been following 1WTC. I have been following 1WTC since 2006, but didn't think there would be a place to talk about it. I decided to look 6 years later and found this forum.

The spire doesn't need to be painted white, it only needs it's radome which is white and was supposed to be there .

There is a big difference between voicing your opinion and trolling threads for reactions. I think I heard the best statement regarding this issue a few days ago in this thread. "If you were walking down the street and on the other side of the street you see a really ugly woman walking on the sidewalk, your not going to cross the street just to tell her she's ugly and has bad teeth are you?" If so you'd be labeled as being a bit crazy and might get the police called on you for harassment. So why come to a thread about 1WTC and constantly tell us how you hate it? After all, I'm not a big Ford fan but you don't see me hanging out at the Ford forums telling them how much I hate fords. It's called trolling for peoples reactions and no matter how hard you try to convince yourself and us that you are "just voicing your opinion", it's still trolling and not needed. Most chat forums around the world actually delete any and all negative comments regarding what the conversation/topic is about simply because its not needed and only fuels arguments. The mods here give a lot of lead way when it comes to people "expressing their opinions", but honestly in my opinion, should ban/delete a lot more people and posts then they do.
