It was very short sighted on the part of the Memorial designers not to integrate the lights into the pool perimeters.

this sucks, if we knew they tested the lights on whatever date we could have looked in earthcam's archives. In the description it says 4th of July so i'm guessing whoever shot it took it during one of the last tests.

I don't think they've tested the spire lights at all since a couple days before July 4th. I would have heard about it if they had.

Seems like whoever posted that youtube video had been hanging onto it for awhile. Like me, they probably couldn't remember what day it was exactly when they shot it, so they just titled it July 4th.

A rainy day, but they're testing the lighting over near the WFC underground walkway entrance. Looks nice!

Unless they made two documentaries, this is the one I made renderings for. Because they couldn't get footage of the lit spire, they had to cut the segment featuring my videos. However, I made everything that I produced available on my youtube channel in the link below. The one with a lit spire took over 20 days to render, but is the closest thing to having real footage from after the redesign.

I linked the team to this thread and the one at SSP. I was told that the team really enjoyed the pictures and other updates on here. It's a real possibility that they have been following the progress on here since. With that said, the Associate Producer tried to make an account but said there was trouble with the page, back in July.

Anyone have any idea what Citibike plans for the World Trade Center area once its complete? I know they've got bike docking stations surrounding the complex, but so does Grand Central Station on the Upper East Side, and Grand Central alone has something like 118 docking stations directly associated with it.

I can't imagine that they'd leave the WTC site totally untouched with bike stations ...

Lucky you.

If this was SSP, NYGuy would have shutdown the off topic discussions and arguments the moment they started.

Harsh, yes? But it keeps the forum in order.

Ok I really got to learn how to post pictures here but if anyone has an Instagram account, my nephew showed me a picture of two people doing ballet on the setback on 4WTC with 1WTC in the background at sunrise. It's pretty cool and if someone could possibly post that I think it's worth a show to everyone. Credit the user of course The users name is jumfernandes

Fun fact to stop this argument:

Did you know, to save workers time for lunch on the new World Trade Center Building, they installed a mobile Subway restaurant, they moved up the building as they finished each floor.

I seen that on the Nova special. Very cool to have had a Subway way up there. I wonder if it was free. That has to be the worlds highest Subway. Or at least highest in the U.S. anyways
