I've recently watched The Amazing Spiderman 2. There are some great shots of the tower in it. One WTC just lends itself to imposing cinematic appearances. I'm looking forward to future movies using it as a backdrop.

The spire looks amazing lit up, I really hope once it's finished it will stay that way through the night.

Ground zero is well and truly gone. World Trade Center is the name. Not that anyone in my area ever seemed to call it GC it was always the World Trade Center even after the twin towers and other associated buildings were destroyed.

Last time I was in the area I was able to see some work being done on the western and southern facade. That was a year ago. It would make sense if they're restoring the northern side now.
