8 Spruce is gorgeous. If you want an eyesore, look no farther than the William Beaver House.

Aww, come on. Your not talking about the Yellow Brothel Tower that should have a big sign on the top that says "Live Nudes" and has Beaver in its name are you?
That thing IS hideous

Seriously, what's going on in the 77th floor, does anyone know? It's the floor where all the windows have a white color.

Probably a completed floor with office lighting.

Who knows what the tenants are doing with their office space.

Seriously, owners of the One WTC, please reconsider making the top of the communications ring as a observatory. That would make this tower perfect, and then we could have a 360º view of New York like the observatory of the old Twins.... MAKE THAT HAPPEN!!

I guess a little dose of radiation wouldn't hurt......

Even if the PA turned it into a observation deck, and they won't, it still wouldn't be possible as the spire will have antennas attached to it which will kill you if you're exposed to radiation for to long.

That's not how "radiation" works. It's not a nuclear reactor. It's just a signal tower. They're harmless, even if ignorant suburban moms fret about them regularly.

No, the radio waves from the equipment will still be very harmful if you are around it for to long. This is why the outdoor observation deck was on the South Tower, not the North Tower.

Hey, I know that it would be impossible to have an observation deck there due to lack of access and safety features, but the radiation isn't that big of a deal. The radio and microwave transmitters would be focused towards the desired receivers to begin with. Also on the electromagnetic spectrum, both are below visible, or even infrared. below Infrared, the most I could see happening is a negligible heating of water. In a microwave, all that energy is forced into a metal box to heat an item that is safe for consumption, and not the least bit radioactive. The UV radiation would be more dangerous. A sun burn is actually a radiation burn, that's prevented by regularly applied sunscreen.
