For anybody that likes to watch PGA Golf, they are playing in Jersey City at Liberty National and NYC is in the background most of the time with some AWESOME views of 1WTC.

Don't know if this has been said, but you can really see the yellowish color in the border of the tower the picture above. Some article (Forgot where) said that the pollution in the city will cause the white border on the tower to turn completely yellow within the next 5 years, sadly

That bottom part with the fins (the reflection, or whatever) looks like it is stained with mud in several spots. Definitely looks messy.

The borders are stainless steel, not white, but they have been dulled by smog. I wouldn't say it looks yellow, just a little dirty.

Exactly.

If that was the case, the twins facade would have been yellow.

All it needs is a good wash, that's all.

Hey, don't hate on me, hate on the article that said it. I have nothing against NYC or 1WTC, in fact both are my all time favorite city and tower.

I do agree with you Chibears, it does look like it could use a washing.

Something interesting I failed to mention from my trip. My dad was interested to see if they were legit beams. They're actually hollow.

We should wait until the building is complete and has been completely cleaned, then I'm sure everything will come together. I don't think those panels have been cleaned since they were placed there so no wonder they would look grimy and discoloured, don't worry, wait until the building has been thoroughly cleaned and I'm sure it will be stunning!

432PA's facade is made of a type of finished concrete. The only thing smog will do to it is turn it a dirty gray, but that is over the years and if it is not cleaned.

On One WTC you can clearly see how dirty the older windows are compared to the newer windows that filled where the west construction elevator was. And even those are now some what dirty. Once all is cleaned This will shine beautifully. And I believe I remember Otie saying the building was going to be cleaned 3 times a year.
