And that's why I believe New York City has never gone away or lost its spark. It has only been enhanced to the point of transformation.

Hey guys. I've started uploading pictures from my trip and will be for the next 10 days or so. I have some pics of 1WTC already posted. If someone could do me a huge favor by visiting the page in my sig and sharing those pics, I'd be really grateful. Thanks.

Here's a preview of the view from our hotel:

I have a question, at night will the World Trade Center be lit up red, white, and blue, or is it only certain nights/special occasion?

IIRC they are just wrapping construction lights in a colored plastic wrapping. The tower will look normal when done.

That's a beautiful shot - did you take it from Staten Island?

It's funny how tiny the antenna sections look now on top... they seemed so massive being carried in those ships.

Really love the tower, but the spire is really not to my liking.

From the looks in the original renders, it seemed that the spire would be covered with a silver cover. Any idea if this will happen or will they will it as is?

It was a white radome. They scrapped to save 20 million and because they claimed maintenance would be a pain.

I can't believe they used such a lame excuse on an iconic multi-billion dollar project just to save $20 million

The reason actually was due to nearly impossible maintenance, but internet forum users like to claim it was done just to save 20 million.

I'll post this video again.....



Imagine climbing that with the radome covering the mast.
Can you begin to imagine how hot and humid it would be in there during the Summer?

Yeah, Durst may have wanted to save a few buck, but I still believe it was for maintenance issues too.

Manhattan looks like a giant cargo ship anchored at bay waiting to sail off at sea.

Not if you install a cooling system inside the radome for the hot summer days which would have been possible
