The north and south entrances will be almost twice as wide as the west and east entrances. So yes the west and east entrances will be the same height, just a lot less wider. To show you what I mean here...

I think there are two rows of glass missing on the top side of the entrance in that photo. With those installed the opening will be less tall looking.

That first picture is outdated. The glass has been filled in all around the entrance now.

Here is a more recent one:

Let's hope they light the hell outta this thing for the Super bowl, think about it, this will be 1 of the few times NYC will get the Super bowl, and let's face it seems like 1/2 the worlds TV's will be tuned to NYC that night. ( Most likely every neon and regular light will be lit to appeal to the Worldly audience.) So skyscrapers, beacons, spires and antennaes will all be lit for the show.

I really really really hope so


Plus just for safety reasons with helicopters and aircraft or whatever, you can't just have a 1780 foot tall structure where the top half is dark.

First you have to get 10 posts, then you can post images. But you can post the URL, and another forum member could post the pic here for you.
