After careful examination, I've estimated the # of remaining panels to be installed above the lift at ~ 70. Using the 15-per-day figure from the PBS documentary, and assuming they've already installed a few today, I will wager that they'll be finished in 5 days.

1WTC spire is clearly as bright as the ESB antenna tonight. From the Jackie Robinson Parkway it even appeared brighter.

Pix today of 1WTC from about 30 miles out

Sorry for the terrible quality. Taken with an iPhone 4 if I had one of those SLR cameras these would be amazing shots and you'd make out all the details. To the naked eye 1WTC is way bigger in these shots and much more clear as you can imagine! It's just fun seeing it peek through in the distance on clear days. I put red arrows pointing to it in 2 pictures to help you see. For those curious this was taken from Ocean Parkway near Jones Beach on LI.

love this angle, it shows the beauty in this tower's design. The tapering almost seems reversed.

One World Observatory, once completed, will probably be the most modern observatory in America. I just HAVE to go.

And I just finished signing up, too.

Just thought you weren't suppose to "advertise" on site, but it's Wrebbit3d. I guess there's no harm in that
