There have been complaints about people blocking the view by sitting / standing on the vents and not moving.

Quote:
Cordons / barrier ropes placed on the vents would do wonders in this case. That's the only solution I see here.

I'm just wondering how the wifi is now at One World Observatory. At the open house on the 28th, it was terrible, losing connection often. I tried to send a pic to someone, and it never transmitted until I left the building and was on the plaza on West St. It is the only "complaint" we had from that experience.

Would be cool to plan a forum trip/meet at the observation.

China Center will only occupy floors 89 & 90, so vents no longer needed on those floors..
