I've yet to see such a better shot than this one.

With all the attention to the spire and beacon of late, has anyone noticed that they have begun to clad the last major portion of the base on the east side....

Have they? When I look on earthcam I don't see any glass yet on that side. Unless the camera is outdated?

I thought that they had begun the first row, but now I'm not so sure, looking at the nighttime photo.

Taken by me a few hours ago. I like how from this angle we can't see the external elevators and Towers 1 and 4 look complete (externally)

I think the lights were turned off in Tower 4. In Tower 1 that is where the mechanical space is and it will eventually be lit by LED's.

I wish (just my wish) in the future NYC would have a low-rise futuristic building (lets say birdwing- shaped or wave-inspired design) near Battery Park to feature the tall towers behind

That's a really old photograph. The cranes are still on top.

Architecture copies itself... take a look at old buildings in Europa for example.
