I don't know if it already have been discussed (sorry if so, I wasn't able to find) but how are they going to dismantle the cranes?

One of the crane takes the other down, then a smaller crane is installed for taking down the second big crane, and the smaller crane will be dismantled and lifted down by elevator.

Level 100 top observation deck @ 472m.
Level 97 lower observation deck @ ~435m

No outside obdeck, but maybe the terrace @ level 96 could be public open?

Little bit off-topick, but anyway here are some videos of base-jumping from Jin-Mao Tower





It would be awesome to jump top of World Financial Center between the two towers!
