There were also proposals for special lighting on the floors, but Chapelo knows more about that....

What years where those for? All through 90s, or earlier?

went out to see the beacon. Looked like it was as bright as it was back in November when they tested it. Last week it didn't seem as bright.

Don't be deceived by the Harbor Webcam. It has a shitty filter that makes everything appear brighter.

They do seem to adjust the brightness on the beacon, though.

This is a much better webcam than the NYHarborWebcam.

corner of 7 WTC, this is an interesting angle. I hope more shots will be taken from here when the building is complete.

It just goes to show how massive One WTC really is. Even the highest floors which are the smallest look giant!

The circular platform in the top must be an observatory. That would be a tremendous attraction!
