It's a shame that it wasn't able to open this year. You know, 1973 and 2013.

Probably they didn't want it to open on an "unlucky" year?

Are you saying that the year of the snake is "unlucky?"

This thing is so far from actually being 100% finished

Tenants DEMANDING to move in would speed up the process but unfortunately there is still a very high vacancy rate

Does anybody know how much of the towers office-space is 'occupied / leased' till now???

P.S.

I hope in the future they design a megatall in art-deco ESB-style to honor the old New York.

Why isn't this counted in the architectural height? It serves as a lighting rod, ok, but it totally looks like an architectural element as well. I guess they really did anything to keep that 1776ft height measure, but it is silly in so many ways. If we count the spire, you might as well count everything of it and not stop at the beacon when there are a still more than a dozen ft left.

well done

The U.S. Navy's elite Blue Angels jets will fly along the Hudson River and past Ground Zero This (Friday) afternoon, the city announced.

Seven F/A-18 Hornets will fly in front of One World Trade Center for a photo shoot, according to the Office of Emergency Management. One jet will take photos while six will fly in formation.

The aircraft will take off from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey at about 1:15 p.m. and will make three passes along the river; south, north, and then south again, the city said.

The jets are expected to fly at about 1,000 feet.
