The first photo really shows the effect the gradually-opening fins have.

The building looks so much better with the bottom row of glass being filled in.

Haha no I had to look at it for a while too because you can barely even see the original WTC underneath the new ones' layer...just kept staring because something seemed a bit off/fake

Agreed. It takes quite a bit of effort to fall in.

I was out on my boat last night and 1 WTC did something I had not seen before. This is not the sun. This was 1World Trade Center kicking up one hell of a reflection of the sun near sunset. This was from about 15 miles away. The photo doesn't come close in capturing what this looked like. Even with sunglasses on you could not look directly at it it was SO BRIGHT! I'm kicking myself for not having my DSLR (photo taken with iPhone) with me. I wish you guys could of seen this. We were all like HOLY SHIT!



This was taken about 5 minutes later.

The base cladding truly turned out spectacular, in recent photos it doesn't look very green at all, looks beautiful

Maybe it just needed a good cleaning to not look green. I agree that the color in that pic looks very good
