I won a photo contest by WTC Progress on Facebook. Too bad we still have to wait another 1,5 year for the opening for visitors.

Too bad the spire can't always be lit up. About the only time it looks any good.

The blue lights on the sire look incredible. I am eager to see more colors and combinations.
