That's because it's foggy. It's the same brightness every night pretty much.

That's because it's a pretty pigeon from a stock photo:

most decorative lights in the city go out at a certain point. i'd imagine that beacon sucks up a lotta cash electricity

I remember when I was 10 just hearing of the new WTC down New York, and I would check this website
http://www.wtc.com/media/images/s/wt...e-center?sid=1

every month for some update, I remember in October 2009 being so excited when the perimeter colums went up , 4 years later and look at it now...

Why does the spire look purple when it's lit up on a nightly basis? Is it being lit up in purple or is it supposed to be white? To me it always looks purple from my window and around the streets in TriBeCa.

They finished intalling the windows, except for that gap. I wonder if they will complete that part in the next days or if they'll let it unfinished for some more time.
