If done well it could be pulled off, but that's a tall order. Lots of setbacks and a main frame about the size of ESB that went that tall with modern structural technology would be amazing.

I don't believe the external elevator is coming down just yet, but there was progress on the base cladding

Like with 4WTC, it's probably just the upper portion going bye-bye for now.

This is what a tower like the Burj would sort of look like when viewing from the ESB.

Went out to the Hudson yesterday to take a pic of WTC with the frozen river ice in the foreground. Please 'like' the image if you, er... do!

Speaking of which, have you guys seems this video? Some of the best shots of the city I've seen, especially as it gets closer to the city.

I also noticed a few days ago that they started dismantling the black scaffolding next to the elevator along the ventilation floors..

Good to see it starting to disappear, finally!

Same. I've seen a lot of great shots lately but that darn elevator bothers me way too much to use them as desktop background.
