Oh, I knew about the antenna being scrapped, but I wasn't sure if the lighting was. Thanks.

I'm pretty sure they will make the light show from the spire be the best. I don't think it's something that died.

Would be pretty cool if it had event lighting like the Empire State Building.

It will have special lighting on 9/11 and other specified dates, otherwise it will remain plain mild illumination to save on electricity.

Is that confirmed? That would be huge if true, I hoped they were going to bring those lights back.

Actually, nothing at all about the lighting has been confirmed. I'm just certain that however they light it up the building will look awesome because it was one of the main focuses of this project.

It's kind of a no brainer for the tallest skyscraper in Manhattan to have a lighting scheme. I have no doubt it'll look awesome.

Looks like they’re adding a cross beam to connect two of the columns they put up, today (so much for 24 columns in 24 days. )
