Y everytime the Port Authority post a picture of their beloved tower, they stretch the hell out of it. We all know 1WTC is very tall but not that tall. Their pictures always make it look like it's the Burj Khalifa. LoL

Maybe thats because of the "fisheye"like lens..... from this distance it seems nearly impossible to take a photo of the whole building with a normal camera...

The guy wires really add charm to the mast, yesterday while walking down west side highway I was looking at the tower and they are very prominent. There presence can't be ignored.

Not sure if you can watch this Outside of The UK but here's a link to pretty fascinating (1hour long) Program, 'Rebuilding the World Trade Center'. A lot of Time Lapse Footage & interviews with some of The Workers.

I noticed a few pages ago they have started filling in the gaps on the 20th floor glass, the first floor they did.

Anyone know when those gaps will all be filled?

Ahh yes apologies for saying the spire was lit! I saw it again last night and realised i mistook the blue lights near the top of the spire for lit platforms.
