Wow... the base will become an icon in itself.

I'm not so sure about upcoming projects that will include 1WTC in it, but I know one thing for certain. One World Trade Center seems to inspire many directors, producers, and animators to include the tower in their work. Of the many films that have the tower in it, almost all of them didn't really think about it until they saw it in person and decided to put it in their work. Examples such as: Madagascar 3, Oblivion, and Men in Black 3 are some notable ones. All of those films didn't add the scenes until post-production due to the fact that they believed the tower would serve the film some iconism.

WOW! Thank you so much for that picture!!! I've been absolutely desperate for a close-up pic with the extended fins…and can I say it was worth the wait, they look simply astonishing! Really I'm blown away . I was so unsure from a distance but the close-up has confirmed that the base looks amazing. I need to visit to see it with the rest of the building though

I am happy to say that the antenna is a bit better looking than I thought it might be.

Funny you mentioned this. Was watching the local channel 7 news here in NYC this morning, when they do the weather, they have a webcam facing lower Manhattan. This morning, it looked like that beacon was lit. Wasn't sure if the sunrise was causing that or it really is lit now. And it wasn't the red beacon i've seen in pics. It looked like the white one. I'll check the news tomorrow to see if it really is lit now.

now that this cam is back, http://www.earthcam.com/usa/newyork/...cam=liberty_hd
we will be able to tell without a doubt if the beacon is lit when it is

Imo,these pics posted by the workers are among the most interesting.
I'm surprised we don't have more.
The Port Authority should release more photo:four five a week is properly ridiculous unless that they have good reasons for that.
A few years back,i remember the amazing work Annie Lebovitz did on the NY Times building.

They really look alike, just thinking of both constructed its orgasmic.
Von Klemperer's design looks better.

You have two options:
One:you ask to the Port Authority
Two:you book a room at the W and with a good camera and tele lens you should make it.

Or Three: You ask for a picture from the forumers who typically go around the WTC site.
