I don't see how they can allow the top of the building to look like that forever.The building is all glass, but the antenna is metal/steel, thats not a consistent beautiful look. I say they should stick to the original plan for the top of the building which was fiberglass I think. I think they will come up with a alternative plan in time to resolve this issue of looks. From the pictures the antenna looks so skinny thats u can hardly see in the daytime. Maybe in person the antennae looks better, but I still don't buy it How can they spend a billion on the building, but wanna cut back on the antenna, doesn't make sense.

Can't believe there's going to be a super tall in lower Manhattan that isn't the WTC.

It appears the memorial will be open from 6-midnight that night for the public. And I guess the lights will be near the memorial?
