I'm certain the base lights will be just like the spire. White on normal nights, and colored for special nights.

Usually I am very defensive when people harshly criticize the spire lit in different colors, but I have to agree with the general consensus that the base colors are, indeed, tacky. They just do not fit. There is no smooth or harmonic juxtapose to blend the colors. It literally looks like a giant blank billboard standing against the tower. It almost looks like the tower is wearing cheesy and too brightly colored shorts from the 90s . . .

I'm not a fan of the colored lights at the base. I agree with the sentiment above and hope they just keep the base white ALL THE TIME.

My apologies if these had been posted.

Are there any good photos of colored base lighting? Or is everyone's disdain based upon that one tiny photo?

Personally, I hate the bunker at the base of 1WTC. With no windows and few entrances, it creates a massive dead zone in the streetscape. But since it is going to be an opaque solid wall to the outside world, the lighting is welcome. I'm reserving judgement on colored lighting until better photos surface.

Yea the base does look bad, but it most likely will match the color of the spire, so if they both match it wont be as bad.

It's a lighting test. They purposely turn everything on to see if it has uniform illumination. Lights won't be like that everyday, or even on special occasions. It will be like the spire, white all the time then a combination/pattern for special days. They're not morons, give em some credit.
