Does anybody else think the spire lights are very dim, especially compared to the Empire State Building?

It isn't in person.

By the way, the ice falling from the tower reminds me of all the papers falling from the twins on 9/11.

i'd imagine it looks beautiful in real life, light reflecting off the ice as it falls. Of course often it's the nicest looking things in nature which are the most dangerous.

The sidewalks on the Bank of America Tower and 520 Madison Ave are usually blocked off when ice begins to fall. I'll expect the same for 1 and 2 WTC given their curves and slopes.

Beacon and mast lighting all the way from Far Rockaway

Does the beacon appear to be not rotating now?

I think overall it's a nice building except I don't like the antenna on top. It just does not seem to fit.

How much will the observation deck cost? I know with the Shard its 244 Meters for the price of £25 ( $41 ) for adults, and I think the observation deck in this building is around 380 M.

Well the ESB observation deck and Top of the Rock both cost $27 so I would think it would be comparable. I guess they can charge you more for the Shard because there is no competition at that height.

The ring never will be lit. The mechanical floors will, however. That alone will make the top look much better at night.
