They really really need to light up the top better at night, the upper floors and the pinnacle.

I see they haven't put all the cladding on around the top of the elevator area.

As for 1wtc, looks like base cladding is almost complete, remove the elevator, and were not gonna have anything to talk about, hopefully 3wtc takes off, then hopefully this year 2 gets it's leasers, and it gets underway. 2 in my opinion is the best of the bunch

I don't know.... NYC has enough of those already. I think the Empire State Building is just right as the supertall Art Deco Skyscraper in that city.
