Wait, so does this mean they are continuing to dismantle the elevator, or are they just stopping right there?

Well considering the gates still exist on the rest, they're probably stopping right there.

Is the Spire being painted or something? I don't know, it looks rusted or bare. Contrasting with the pale sheen of the glass, it looks dark and dirty.

There's no plans to paint it.

That view is just wow. Imagine that in a few years with all these huge towers going up in midtown.

Its amazing that the Empire State building started construction on March 1930 and opened by May 1931.

And this building started construction in April 2006 and won't open until Spring 2015.

Well keep in mind what's going on in the inside. That's where most of the work has been recently

So is the spire lit up permanently now?? Are there plans NOT to light it up every night? I'm confused.

I guess they're going to light the spire up for July 4th this year, since they lit it up for the superbowl. (Just a wild guess, not implying anything here).

I love New York's light show! Look at these buildings at night:

Bank of America Tower (in foreground), and 4 Times Square (Conde Nast, in background):



Empire State Building:



And of course, One World Trade Center:



And the best part is, when the building is completed, (probably fall 2014 or spring 2015), the whole building will be lit up in special lights, including the base! Also, imagine the lower manhattan skyline in the future would look GREAT once the whole complex is completed!

If more buildings over the years have spires and are lit up like these buildings, New York would look awesome!
