Ch. 13, PBS in New York is running a program called "Super Skyscrapers" at the moment, FYI.

The documentary showed why the radome was removed.

It showed that it violently "wiggled" in high wind pressures.

That was a pretty violent wiggle in the wind tunnel.

I could see how it would wiggle, I mean it's just fiberglass essentially.

Yeah that was an interesting demonstration of the spire cladding getting tossed around in that wind tunnel. I guess they seem to forget the cladding won't sway like that because of the main structure underneath. If wind was really an issue then spires wouldn't exist in New York. I guess they feel the pieces may in time fall off from getting "blown" around in the wind and maintenance would become that much more difficult. Oh well......

I loved the documentary. It amazes me that all of the steel was placed by only four people And those glass workers who have installed an average of 13 panels a day for 1000 days

Once the building is leased out and fully occupied, and the mech floors are lit, it should look completely fantastic at night.

This is a little sample of what the base lighting will look like.

I think you guys are just looking at reflections. None of the supposed base-lighting-in-action shots have appeared to be anything else.

they're reflections. Probably from the memorial pools. I believe the first few shots in this video are a sample of the base lighting on the Vesey Street side, which is not visible from earthcam. I can't be certain though.
