You can tell from the finished 68th showroom floor that the building is going to look much different once the rest of the floors are fitted out and the exterior columns are covered in drywall. I think the three white vertical lines on each face will make the building look better.

Correction, it's actually on the 63rd floor. But yes, I think it will make the tower look better once all the floors are completed.

1 - His Suit is too big for him. It should be two sizes down so that it hugs his shoulders.
2 - His top button his blazer is not folded properly so it causes to create this crease.
3 - No one wears emerald green with a dark blue suit. He should have gone with brown or something.
4 - He buttoned the 2nd button as well. Which is something u never do. You only button the top one.

Epic fashion fail by this gentleman

He does look like a mess upon closer inspection. It's as if someone else dressed him, in an attempt to make his shoulders look bigger and his stomach look smaller. That top button looks like it may have some pressure being put on it. Either that, or his Tailor was completely drunk when they measured him and put that suit together

Hey, give him a break. The guy did spend $20 million on 1WTC's radome enclosure.

Oh, wait a second...

Does Durst in that photo remind anyone here of Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin from the Marvel Comics universe?

Don't know if this was posted already but:

Watch: The World Trade Center Wails In Strong Winds


New Yorkers who live near One World Trade Center already have to contend with "fortress-like isolation" caused by the imposing NYPD security perimeter. But according to neighborhood residents, there's something far spookier going on at the WTC site: A "ghoulish" howling that happens during storms and high winds.

The Tribeca Citizen recently posted a new video of the aural phenomenon, which sounds like a cross between an untrained flutist and a very high-pitched cartoon ghost. But commenters have been quick to point out that the sound is nothing new—one even claims that the noise has been around since Hurricane Sandy, at least ("it was very loud at times and I thought it was caused [by] the exposed iron work at the top at that time").

Sandy was in October of 2012—when the WTC was still far from topped out—which gives us a clue as to what's generating the howling, architecturally speaking. While some speculate that the noise is caused by the whistling of wind through the large metal spire, it seems more likely that it results from a canyon of air between One World Trade and another nearby building. It's hard to say, though—so we've reached out to the architects for more information.

Cool.

that video is from last year, when Sandy blew through and the building still wasn't closed up. I'm not sure if it will ever happen again if hurricane/tropical storm force winds blow through. I'm also not seeing the logic in writing an article on it over a year later.

Yikes that howling video is shocking.

You would think that even the wind in this day and age would have auto-tune.

Just a thought: Could the MEP vents be causing the howling sounds?
