Does someone know when that ugly escalator will be brought down entirely?
Why would they remove the escalator after working so hard to get it up there?

(The external construction elevator will likely remain through much of the interior work.)

I'm so glad that the Skyline looks healed after 9/11, I've seen a couple of shows from Letterman and Fallon recently where they show shots of New York before or after commercials and for the first time in so many years it looked fine and not missing the Twins anymore.

Looks like they are also filling in the glass near the elevator.

Weidencol, 1st picture is just awesome, can now see 432 park making it's presence on the skyline in that shot.

i'm sure it looks nicer in person, I wonder if they'll lite up the entirety of the base or create a random pattern for the final product?

Nice. And here I thought the base couldn't get any more awesome.

I agree with Hudson, I think it looks very tacky lit up in different colors. Hopefully they keep it white...

These colors are very tacky dont have any elegance, grace or sophistication about them.

Well, I'm glad they filled in that gap on the upper floors. Now all they need to do is take down that hideous construction elevator.

Yupp they do look tacky the blue and pink have to go actually any other color that isnt the natural white, and its also is missing that soft glow as well, it looks too uniform to me

I'm sure in-time when the building is complete and the lights are on, people will come to liking the base and find the lighting a little less tacky. I find the colors quite nice.

I don't know

This is not what I pictured would be the building to replace the twin towers.
