Under 1 WTC as we approach the elevators, we go through what looks like a cave in the bedrock... <edit - I'm trying to add a few more pictures from under 1 WTC but flicker is acting badly... /edit>

well, until flicker decides to let me load more pictures, I have a couple more from one of our observatory visits..

on the 102nd floor, the theater that shows a great, short video which concludes with the screen raising, revealing the skyline...

and here is the entry / exit to the concourse connecting Brookfield Place and the PATH. We entered from there one of the days that we went...

The entry to a video story told by the 1WTC workers (primarily) about the building of the new tower. The video screens are to the right as you enter, and to the left there are some angled mirrors that make a very nice effect.

Ah, Hurricane Sandy, I remember the black netting getting nearly ripped off the building.

I wish there was a way to just go up to the Observation Deck without the multimedia show ...

I guess we share different opinions about the site. Although I wish they hadn't stripped the spire of its cladding, I still like the spire on top of One WTC. As for the rest of the site... I'm very happy with the way it has turned out so far. Brilliant architecture if you ask me! I just hope tower 2 gets started soon, and if it is to be redesigned like they've been talking about... I hope its better than the current proposal!
