Even though they didn't build the radome, I think the lighting scheme is nice. Not so cool to look at in daylight, but nighttime is a whole diferrent ballgame.

Interesting. From that angle the twins appear to be a single tower. For the relative few that have that view, the skyline didn't change much.

Maybe a stupid suggestion or question; Why not build a huge bridge between lower Manhattan and Jersey City?

Where would the bridge land, especially in the dense and completely built-up area of Manhattan? Same reason why the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel was built in the 1940's instead of the bridge.

Great Midtown! Maybe they should build one mile tower between Midtown and Lower Manhattan.

Yeah, I'd wondered how they were going to do the lighting with the radome. As is, they can do those different colored segments, with lights shining up from where they're positioned on each of the rings, in a way that I don't think would have worked if the enclosure was there.

Not that that lighting idiosyncrasy makes or breaks the design. But I disagree with those who say the radome-enclosed version was more aesthetically coherent with the rest of the tower. It wasn't "slick," it was all kinds of textured. And the bulge in the middle made for an awkward curved line that clashed with the hard lines of the tower. At least the exposed version has hard vertical lines (and angles, if you include the guy wires), and the rings on the spire relate to the communications ring and aid that transition from the grace of the tower to the more functional pieces on top. In short, it feels less tacked on to me than the original version would have.

All that said, I hope that either version would not count towards the final height. Calling this a 1776 ft. tower is a joke and helps enforce a lame precedent for what constitutes height (not to mention serving as a reminder of the creepy hyper-nationalism that nearly ran the United States into the ground over the last decade).

Wow, that lobby is impressive. I would never have called it a bunker from that picture.
