Finally got around to watching that PBS documentary. I especially liked the shots of the spire segments on the barge coming into the harbor.

I also wanted to make this helpful gif for anybody in the future who wants to complain about said spire:

Funny that the PA head wants it on the plaza but the memorial panel does not...what I don't understand is doesn't the PA own the entire site and can't they just make that decision? I don't see how it's a ruin to the integrity of the plaza as some officials have said. It's the most important artifact intact next to the tridents. Hopefully it could happen one day.

Is it possible to redesign the spire "cladding" shape so it handles the wind loads better? Maybe cost of redesign was so high that they rather keep it bare.

I still have hope that sometime in the future it will be "improved".
