I believe the spire is ugly and makes the whole building look like a hypodermic needle. Is it supposed to a tribute to heroin addicts everywhere? How nice they put it in New York.

For me the needle looks great, and it is not that I am addicted but I love that touch that gives the tower itself.

they look like Radio Drums.

Since the FT is going to have one of the highest radio carrying capacities in the world, that would be a safe bet.

What is that yellow sheet of metal on the hinges that was recently installed on top of the Freedom Tower perimeter?

I'm guessing the Yellow sheet metal is for the future work on the Fulton street deckover that is supposed to start in January-ish.

Definitely agree with you on that one. Such a beautiful building was such an ugly spire stuck on top. It definitely looks like it was designed by two different people.

What the hell are they doing down there?

I was in NY in April 07, and the hole still looks the same

I think the tower won´t be finished until 2015, if he´s ever gonna be constructed!

Hate it when people complain about the speed of the Freedom Tower.

Are you serious? What about the antenna on the original One World Trade Center? Did that make the whole building look like a hypodermic needle? What about the spire on the Empire State Building or the Chrysler Building? I think the spire fits in perfectly with the other iconic skyscrapers in NYC.
