The spire is planned to be lit permanently sometime this month. It will be like BOFA and 4 Times Square Towers where it just randomly changes color.

I've heard that it's going to be lit up white every night. Nice to hear otherwise, because the Bank of America tower's spire is amazing to look at in person. But I've never seen Conde Nast's spire because I was never looking for it. One World Trade Center's lighting will be GREAT.

And they're going to light it up in a special way for holidays, like the Empire State Building, right? Because with so many different sections where you can light it up so many different colors, it would make sense to do that. Just looking for confirmation.

Nope, it won't be like the Twins where it's white on non-special occasions.

Back then the workers worked more hours at a faster pace and many worked on the building due to limited jobs in the depression at the time, You'd work pretty much anyway at pretty much any cost, no safety didnt slow then down as much either.

Incase you somehow miss the game, just look up at the skyline and you'll know who's winning and losing.

When the game begins, the spire will be lit half-orange and half-green. During the game, the percentage of the spire lit in each team’s color will be determined by who is winning and by what margin. At the conclusion of the game, the spire will be lit in the winning team’s color.

Not to mention the ESB was nearly empty when it opened.

I'm surprised they didn't get a shot of the spire lit in RWB for the National Anthem over in Metlife.

I came across this pic which was taken about a week and a half ago. The perspective is great.

Roof height wise, the ESB is taller.

It looks like it could just blend into the sky.

Why isn't Durst doing the virtual scoreboard for the spire like his other towers? Right now it's just red/white/blue.
