I don't agree. 2WTC is arguably one of the most beatuiful supertalls out there (along with Torre Verre) . And 4WTC is just pure class, an almost perfect minimalist building. Its glass is in a league of its own.

Btw great pics everyone.

guy wires might be next, or maybe they'll take down the rest of those temporary circular platforms while they're at it

Put your link in between these tags [img]yourLinkHere[/img]

I'll let you do it so you learn how.

EDIT: OOPS... I see you figured it out.

Totally TOTALLY agree!!

Soon, tower 3 will fill the void a bit but will not truly be complete until tower 2 will fill its place in the complex.

Back earlier than expected.....

Here's a video of an engineer climbing the mast.

You can see how uncomfortable it would have been to provide repairs on the mast/spire if they kept the radome

This guy gets my respect.

That's exactly what I WANT to do! Call me crazy but I have always dreamed about climbing the top of really tall skyscrapers and broadcast towers. In Dallas, we have some of the tallest broadcast towers in the country I grew up near and was always fascinated by the shear height of them. I believe the tallest is around 1800 feet tall. I always wanted to climb it

My dad had a friend who did it. He earned about $1,500 per job, and that was back in the '80s. For that kind of money, all fears of taking would be out the window.

Sounds like a cool experience. Myself, I wouldn't go up there for all the money in the world.

There are some spectacular photos in this thread - New York really is special. Not sure if this has been posted before but a small video of them securing the spire

Actually the Spire is kinda looking good now that half of the platforms are coming off...
