it's cool to see they lit at least part of 70 Pine's crown. The beacon looks pretty cool.

Why didn't they put the tribute lights as a permanent fixture on or near 1 WTC?

Silverstein wouldn't go for the cash?

Where can they fit it at? Certainly not the memorial pools.

Why not? Sure it might be hard but I think if we placed them at the centers it would be great. Maybe it would be difficult because of the water, but there's no engineering challenge that can't be solved.

Am I the only one who doesn't like the lighting on the mechanical floors at night?I'd prefer them to stay dark like in the renderings.It would save energy and will look better in my perspective.

Me neither. I don't like the horizontal pattern

I think the lighting on the mechanical floors will look better once all of that construction lighting is finally gone. That won't happen for a long time though.

Anyone know why they still haven't restarted cleaning the glass? The tower is filthy as hell and it looks ridiculous. So tired of the half assing with this place.

It depends on the lighting. In certain light conditions you can't really notice the filth, but sometimes you can clearly see it needs to be cleaned. I'm not sure why its taking them so long. They seem to have just stopped out of nowhere.

Wish I could find the infographic. I had a really neat comparison of both 1WTCs, showing the mechanical floors/vents are at the same height as the impact floors of the North Tower, so I made this one.

Original rendering by StR. Impact floors in red. Arrow on the right points to last mechanical floor.
