Yeah, if you looked at renderings of the building with the radome only 1/3 of it was lit. That was due to them only being able to place the boxes on the communication ring.

magnificent ....... this building has an aura that is untouched in the world.

Hopefully it won't be destroyed by 2 WTC.

Why is it that the mechanical floors are never lit during the fireworks. It's just annoying how every time they do these it has no presence.

Why don't they ever light the base on special occasions? I know it's capable of more than off white. They could have turned it into a flag or something for the 4th.

the pic isn't so good, but it shows 1 WTC 3 years ago, before the spire was installed, and the building itself was done in red, white and blue... There must be a better image than mine floating around, but this gives an idea, which I think they should try to do again...

They won't be able to do that again, at least not on the occupied floors.
