I see various small platforms around the spire that are different widths and spacing. I wonder if companies who want to lease a transmission spot on the spire may take a few years to add whatever equipment they require ? The enclosed spire casing may be plastic panels or similar and installed after most installations. Then once the spire becomes familiar they may not bother...somewhat like the stone cladding not pursued on the George Washington Bridge ? I don't see cost as a factor as it would be insignificant in the cost of the building let alone the entire complex.

I have a question: Does anyone know what the height of One WTC was on the day of the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on September 11th 2011? I know it was 82 stories, but I mean in measurements?

Spire and beacon were extremely bright last night. Once the mechanical floors are lit it will have no problem dominating the whole night.

Not that bright.

The harbor cam uses a filter.
