Like on the ESB, LED lighting really gives a vivid, electric hue to the spire. Regular lighting really doesn't compare to this new technology.

Wow, was expecting to hear a lot of criticism, or just other comments., 8pgs worth of new forum talk the last 2 days, obviously a lot was jibberish, and people talking about the Game, and how bad it was ( and it was bad).. But hats off to our Mod DesertPunk for weeding out the stupid stuff,, but I still think the PA just blew this. They had a perfect opportunity to showcase this building to the World, and didn't even come close to doing it RIGHT!!!

But on a different note the 8pages I went through, were like 2 on a normal page, so once again thanks to NYMod DesertPunk.

111 Million Television sets, around the World, were tuned into NY, and in my opinion,, The PA just didn't seem to give a sh**,, I mean: Show off your new GEM in NYC,, and get the attention it deserves! No it's not the biggest, but it's the most Expensive, and it means the most, from what it's supposed to BE,, Americans, Resilience? Jesus, am I the only 1 who thinks they could have done much better?

It's the Super Bowl, not some fashion party for a lit spire.

Plus, PA has no say what so ever about featuring it during the game, so just be glad it was lit for entire week (still is on).

That's cool and all, but couldn't the Army Corp of Engineers find cheaper real estate to spend the taxpayer's money on? Shouldn't they be on an Army base or something?

The Government has already helped finance this tower and now we have to pay rent in it too? Its like we're having to pay for parts of this building twice.

It looks like they're beginning to place in glass panels right above where they've temporarily stopped dismantling the hoist!

Maybe if government offices weren't such sh**holes, they'd be able to attract some real talent.
