Looks incredible at night, during the day the spire lacks big time.

Also they are repaving Fulton Street in front of 1WTC.

It's not guaranteed yet. I can see LED strip lights up there, so we'll just have to wait and see.

Don't think this has been posted yet. Lovely video of the tower from a bird's eye view, shot by a TV helicopter a couple of days ago.

Funny how the news anchors try to figure out what the beacon is for

Rosanna Scotto and Greg Kelly from Good Day New York. They're kind of insufferable, haha. Incredible footage though.

It's funny all of the media attention when the top of the spire fist went up and now nobody remembers that there is a beacon up there. "Looks like a giant dice", if i'm not mistaking weren't these the same people that covered the raising of the beacon and discussed it's significance lol?

Greg Kelly and Rosanna Scotto are very oblivious to well, everything.

Seems there is something inside the very top of the tower where the flash lights are installed.

Finally ! I've been waiting for this. At last,, after 10+ years it'll get the finished look. It's like a wound is been healed or the last dirty stain is been wiped off... Only the crown is still missing those communication dishes...

I know Brookfield Place (World Financial Center) is undergoing renovations is there a thread or any renders that shows what they are planning on doing with the lawn out front? I've noticed all of the grass has been torn up over the past few months and looks like they are completely redoing all of it.

I guess they are building a plaza to match the memorial and citybike station.
