A harpoon will do just good to get a rope up to the moon from there. It might just be the next quick path to the moon. Lol.

The tip of the spire looks very sharp and pointy. Lightening would find it very useful, if I may say.

What a beautiful building all together!

^. I only count 6 and I believe there are 8 so there should be 2 more, unless there are 2 I can't see.

They provide additional support to the spire and keep it from blowing over.

Until now,i was ok with that "spire".
Now that it's near completion i really don't know anymore:it trully looks likes an antenna but it's not: an antenna has communication devices!
It's not a spire,neither an antenna:my mind doesn't accept anymore the paradox and i feel so bad just because i love New York so much.....
Maybe that guy i "fought"with two days ago was right:nothing in the tower's design was calling for a spire.
I just have to wait the tower to be completed and keep the faith....

I personally think it would have been better if the ring and the spitenna didn't exist. But the building is still a masterpiece, even with them on top of it

Those guy wires don't look like they've been pulled tight yet. Will this be done only after all of them are in place?

Most of all,i think that we NEED tower 2 to be built.
Right now,the eye focus on tower one as it stands alone.
ESB has the same problem(?) but ESB is almost perfect.

No.

The mast won't be coated in a material to match the beacon, it's not getting painted white and it won't have the radome covering.

What you see is what we're getting.

Nice shot from Earthcam.

Dude where you been the last 1-2 years.. There's no Radome, this is it......... If your new let us know, everyone will catch you up to speed, or just look at the previous pages. hoods for the ac units? and guy wires is about all thats left..I'm not bashing you either it's just a touchy subject around here, but that debate was awhile ago.

As Kanto said, this tower is truly a masterpiece, and every time I look at it, whether in person, or in images, I am truly stunned. The glass is just amazing, and I love how it reflects gracefully in the skyline. The mast on top isn't terrible in my opinion, and has grown on me as just part of the beautiful tower. I truly can't wait for 2 and 3 to rise. The complex will just look so stunning.

Anyone know any great places to see the skyline from the Lower Hudson Valley (Rockland County area)?

HE only had 1 post so he's new. I doubt it will start a debate again. I think people are finally getting use to the new design.
