With the top mech floors lit, it kinda looks like that gap of darkness is back. They should light up the observatory floors.

Some of the photos were shot after midnight, which is when the spire turns off. The mechanical floors are lit dusk to dawn.

Well, that's quite disappointing then considering all the spires in Midtown are still lit up after midnight. Are they going to leave it like that or is there a plan to have the spire lit up longer through the night, like with the ESB / BoA Tower etc. ?

Maybe BOfA and Conde Nast masts turn off midnight in winter and longer in the summer?

But I know Empire State Building closes 2:00 AM. I'm not crossing my fingers the 1WTC spire will be open after midnight once completed.

Is it always going to look like this or are they eventually going to turn off some of the lights in the top floors/observatory?

It ought to look more in place once the office lighting reaches higher floors.
