Did you know that they're using the same marble quarry as the original Twin's lobbies used?

Would be really nice to see a lot of trees planted there

Yeah, I hope Durst gets booted as well. The man has been nothing but a mole on the entire project and has caused more trouble than good. Port Authority doesn't seem too efficient either with running this project.

Any news on when the mechanical floors will be finally lit?

That's the cherry on top as far as I'm concerned. The building is spectacular but those black bands at night marr what has turned out to be a perfect design.

That last pic is hauntingly reminiscent to the construction days of the old twins.

I Love this angle really shows the dominance and slenderness of the tower actually looks like it belongs to the World Trade Center.

I love the angles where it looks like the North Tower. Hauntingly nostalgic.
