I love your costume! Give us a tutorial on how you made it because I want to have one of those! (Not really for Halloween because I don't dress up for Halloween, I mean just in general)

Things you'll need to recreate my costume:

- bicycle shipping box (just call a local bike shop, they usually just recycle them)
- box cutters
- zip ties
- spray paint
- HVAC tape (like duct tape, but metallic)
- clear packaging tape
- TIME! (probably too much of it, lol)

I received an email saying that One World Observatory is opening in 2015. Not really new news at this point, but I just wanted to direct you to the website, which is fully up. They have an amazing video, too.

You can see the trade center around 7:05 and 9:25 last year, the spire and mechanical levels weren't lit. You can tell the difference.

Had to share just one parade pic. The juxtaposition is too good. I know it's a cardinal sin to refer to 1WTC as the "Freedom" tower, but my girlfriend was the Statue of Liberty and had a sign that said "Liberty." Freedom and liberty, get it? #merica. And yes, those are two strips of bacon behind me.

432 PA might be taller, but this tower surely transmits much more influence, power and character... 1WTC is definitely the king of NY.

1WTC is trending on Facebook right now. Does Conde Nast move in tomorrow?

Yes. Riot fences and ropes have been removed around all sides of the tower, so the public can now get up to it.

Please know, however, that you must have credentials to enter the office areas of the lobby.

Probably has something to do with Chris Rock and his appearance on SNL last night. He has been one of my most favorite comedians since I was a kid, but last night, I just wanted to jump through the TV and bitch slap him to the ground
