I like this shot, it gives the tower that iconic look.

Two CNN journalists arrested for trespassing at WTC site: officials
Producer Yon Pomrenze, 35, and cameraman Connor Fieldman Boals, 26, were busted by Port Authority cops after they were caught trying to climb a fence, according to a PA spokesman.

A CNN cameraman and producer were arrested Tuesday for trying to get past security at the World Trade Center site in the wake of two major security breaches, officials said.

Producer Yon Pomrenze, 35, of Manhattan, and cameraman Connor Fieldman Boals, 26, of Brooklyn, were arrested after trying to get into the site through a gate and by climbing a fence, Port Authority spokesman Steve Coleman said.

The duo first tried to push their way though a partially open gate at Vessey and Washington Sts. around 2 p.m., he said.

They were stopped by a PA police officer who told them they weren’t allowed inside.

“Both then told the officer that, ‘If a 16-year-old can get on the site we should be able to get in as well,’” Coleman said.

They then walked east on Vessey St. to the entrance of the Path Station at W. Broadway, Coleman said. There, they twice tried to climb a fence but were stopped by officers and private security, he said.

“They then tried to push the gate open in front of a security guard and were arrested,” Coleman said.

They were charged with criminal trespass, obstruction of government administration and disorderly conduct, he said.

“This is an incredible waste of police resources,” fumed PA spokesman Joseph Pentangelo.

A CNN spokeswoman said the two were not instructed to sneak onto the site.

The men were in possession of a GoPro camera — the same camera used by the skydivers who jumped dove off the Freedom Tower on Sept. 30.

I don't think this is a good idea. This works only inside a building, but not outside, you have birds and stuff there.

Exactly my thoughts. It was already very apparent in the first video because at one point you see his chute open from the POV of the second jumper and he somehow managed to drop lower than the second guy. It seems as if he must have been awfully close to the altitude of the upper floors of the concrete-base when his chute finally opened. Good thing they all had a safe and sound landing though.

Good to see. Wikipedia says that Condé Nast rents the floors from 20-44 (is this correct?), so probably they bring down the hoist down to floor 44?

The interior fitouts will continue till November.

Conde Nast employees got the memo that starting in November 2014. they will begin the process of moving to One WTC.

Not sure how long the move will take, maybe a few months.
