So beautiful, if they finished the spire like originally planned, it would have looked even more sophisticated.

If it weren't for the vents on the upper floors I would have loathed this tower. They just give 1 WTC such a nice touch.

Is there any documentation anywhere about when satellite dishes will be installed on the communication ring? Or was that a selling point that is not coming to fruition?

Not sure what was the exact height of the South Tower outdoor deck but I would say the 1,365' figure is pretty close. I would say it was about the same height as the North Tower's roof of 1,368'.

Here is a pic of the "bump" on the South Tower. That's what made it 1,362'. The deck looks anywhere between 5 to 7 feet higher than the roof.

Yes there is a bit of a dispute as to the exact height of the outdoor deck from street level, I think because nobody has the blueprints for it. It is hard to tell exactly the height of the deck from that picture because it depends on how tall the person taking it is and whether they were standing on top of a bench or something when they took it. If my 1,365'4'' guess is correct that would mean the deck was 3'4'' higher than the top of that hump which is possible given what I just said.

What was the height difference between the hump and the edge of the roofline? I ask because I also come across an article from the opening of the deck back in 1975 that said the deck's walkway was 12 feet above the roof and 1,377 feet above mean sea level but of course that is referring to the height directly under the deck and not the hump. So maybe the height could be extracted from what we know, i.e. the height at the edge of the roofline +12'.

Omg, somehow I always knew I wasn't the only one who noticed. The time I went to the new wtc observatory, the person who was giving the presentation behind the circular tv screens told us that where we were (100th floor) was the same exact height as the roof of the Empire (1,250 feet) but now I realize we were actually 10 feet below said height. I'm assuming the typo was on purpose and not a mistake?
Also, about the original towers, I always thought that since the 107th floor of the south tower was 1,310 feet high, then the restaurant in the north tower must have been 1,316 feet since it was taller by 6 feet.
Anyway, it's pretty cool to finally know the exact heights down to the inch.

Actually, the height of the 100th floor is above 1250 ft because of how high each of the glass panels are of the facade (13.4ft), that would put the 100th floor at around 1259ft.
