1 WTC is the lead building in the new complex, just as the twins were of the original.

But the other towers are never fully appreciated, I agree. Once 2 WTC is built I expect that to change. People will want to know what that building is.

Any chance to watch the docu if you live outside the US? The website says it's not available here in Europe because of right restrictions

New World Trade Center design may be to blame for falling ice that disrupts morning commute
The building’s sloping corners functioned like a ski jump for falling ice. The Port Authority officials shut the PATH station over safety concerns,
causing a massive rush hour log jam.









By Matt Chaban AND Barry Paddock
February 7, 2014

Falling ice from One World Trade Center led to the closure of nearby streets, the PATH station and a memorial pool Friday morning.

Port Authority workers closed the main entrance to the World Trade Center station about 8:45 a.m. after ice began plummeting more than 1000 feet off the nearly-completed building, officials said. Service to Newark and Hoboken was suspended

The tower's distinctive design made matters worse, witnesses said. The building’s sloping corners functioned like a ski jump for falling ice.

"The ice just comes down the side and shoots off," said one PATH worker, who declined to give his name.

Disembarking PATH passengers were diverted to the World Financial Center, now known as Brookfield Place, where they were confronted by a maze of plywood because the entire ground floor of the four building development is being renovated for new stores and lobbies.

One building executive dismissed the problems as just a fact of life in New York.

"When you have tall glass buildings and icy conditions, that ice is going to start falling," the executive said. "It happens all over town."

The station reopened just before 9:30 a.m., but at 11 a.m. the north pool of the World Trade Center memorial was closed due to hazardous conditions, officials said.

Nobody was hurt by the falling ice.

I've found a solution and was able to watch in UK. Download a google chrome add-on called Hola. Go to PBS website as normal, it will unblock site, and you're sorted! Hope this helps!

We do that all the time here in Australia since our stupid broadcasters do crappy deals that see us watching stuff months and months behind the US. Love Hola.

Please be careful sharing out of date material, I really wanted to see the segment with the wind tunnel testing of the spire/radome, unfortunately thats not in this old video.
