Actually the date is September 11, 2001.

But anyway, you make a good point. Some people think of One World Trade Center only as a skyscraper, but it's not true. It's not only a monument either, or else it would be unoccupied and way shorter. It's supposed to show the rebirth of America.

Actually, I have no idea what you're talking about.

Somebody said a few days ago that they were prepping to take down more of the lift. Is that for real??

Yes. About 15 or so floors have the gates taken off. This picture was from today, more of the hoist could be removed then what is shown. I'm not sure, but I think it will be dismantled down to Conde Nast floors.

Maybe bad question:
Which function have these ''stripes'' in the cladding?

no such thing as a bad question. They're slits in the glass cladding for air ventilation on mechanical levels.
