1 WTC should be prominently featured tonight for the fireworks, as they've returned downtown on the East River near the Brooklyn Bridge. Hopefully Durst will use it as an opportunity to show off the capabilities of the spire's LED lighting.



i'm interested in seeing how the fireworks will look reflected upon Gehry's building.

No special lighting. Not a surprise, after all Durst controls it.

That's not special lighting. I'm talking ESB like lighting.

From Brooklyn, the BoA Tower looked pretty slick with the white light shard on the side of the building combined with the red and blue spire. But yea, 1WTC was pretty basic. I would have loved to see the mech lights on at least.

Any reason there was no special lighting tonight? I doubt it's because of Durst wanting to save money, doesn't he control the BoA Tower's spire as well? That one did have special lighting.

Yes, it was truly amazing. I felt like I was in Dubai or Taipei or something.

Dubai's obsession with palm trees is in full display I see. Palm islands, and now palm fireworks. what will they think of next? Palm shaped taxis? Palm skyscrapers? Might as well call it Palm City!
