I was in in NYC one week ago and although my busy schedule prevented me from getting right up close to WTC1, I could there was window washing going on.

Nope, either from 6th or 7th avenue, rather 6th avenue, from the height of about 9th to 15th street, or further up, depending on the zoom used.

Hey guys,

I posted this over at SSP but wanted to share here too. I completed a short version of my time lapse video showing the tower emerging on the skyline.

Hey everyone! My nerdiness for architecture has finally convinced me to join i have a question that has been bugging me for a really long time and i would greatly appreciate it if someone took the time to clear things up for me
When this building was first being constructed i heard that there would be wind turbines somewhere on the mechanical floors or something like that because of the LEED status they were going for, which was what the slits on the sides were all about. Was that just a proposed idea or are there actually turbines in the structure?
