yeesh look at the difference. They should clean the facade more often - cost be damned.

Today I visited the World Trade center for the first time. I have to say that the tower itself definitely feels like the largest fortress ever constructed, but the base cladding looks beautiful, and anyone who says that the base itself looks like a fortresss is mistaken. The NYPD did a pretty good job! I loved the look of the entrances, but the whole site was covered with fences and security cameras, which not only ruined a lot of picture taking opportunities, but also made the place feel like a concentration camp. The colorful ads were enough to distract me from that. Also, I found it funny that some tourists tried to enter One World Observatory and were told that it doesn't open yet for another week. The owners had to put up a sign eventually.

It was looking nice yesterday morning, rising above the fog... I only had my phone, but the light reflections of the sunrise off the facets (?) were as impressive as the sunsets, maybe more so... If you ever get the chance from this perspective (Exchange Place in Jersey City) you'll see what I mean for yourself. A nice place for sunrises and sunsets.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
WHAT HAVE THEY DONE???????
This animated skyline is historically inaccurate! This is a catastrophe! It's almost intellectually offensive how off it is! Why is it showing the Singer Building, Park Row Building, City Investing Building, Hudson Terminal Buildings and what clearly looks like a 1950s era skyscraper in the 1850s???? And why does it show 4WTC completed in the year 2003??
Someone needs to report this embarrassing error immediately! The architect in me is going nuts over this.
