Oh, I totally forgot about this one! Thanks! But a render like this doesn't exist, right?

There was a video posted here some months back showing the process of climbing the Spire. Basically you attach your harness to these hooks that ride on a track that's on the inside of the spire. Those hooks go up with you as you climb but are "one way" meaning if you slip from the ladder, those hooks will catch the track keeping you from falling back down...If you understand that. Hopefully someone remembers the video and can find it. I believe it was posted from a safety company showing the process of climbing the Spire.

I found the website of the company here but the video is private now for some reason, but if you look at the picture below the video, you can get an idea of what I'm talking about. Perhaps someone can get the video to play.

I don't see why they can't build a circular open observation deck above the Communication platform ring. OK, saying it's because of radiation seems lame ? Tourists would spend a relatively short time on this deck and Observation Deck staff would be below on the designated floors. When I visited the original WTC open roof to deck back in 2000 it was the most amazing observation deck I had ever been in the world. It would not be hard to build a platform just above the Communications ring with an escalator rising to this level and people would be allowed to circle the platform then go back to the inside deck below. I am sure they would not glow in the dark...? Look at all the antenna stuff on the ESB when you visit its deck or the top of the spire...A typical Cell phone probably gives more radiation...and that’s for hours every day...put it away !

No the final spire is more or less as you see it now.

That pic is just missing the beacon and lightning rod as well as a few platforms.

Not even close, more like the left side of the pic, but a little fatter and nicer (if we actually had the one on the left side I would cry).
