You can see that there's a lot of window cleaning to be done on WTC1, what's keeping them so long?

I've wondered that myself. The only thing I can think of is that they are delaying because either 1) the facade adjacent to 2WTC is not technically complete yet and they are waiting on that to be finished before doing the whole building, or 2) there is so much potential for dust and debris due to the construction of 3WTC, liberty park, and the surrounding trees and landscaping that they figure it is better to wait until some of that is under control before proceeding.

If they're using any other line of thinking, I honestly can't imagine what it might be.

The windows on the building to the right of 30 Park Place always annoy me for some reason.

Yeah - it's the unnecessary reflective glass. It cheapens it.

It is actually a horrendous work of architecture that just looks horrible.

That's the work of Costas Kondylis, a very prolific architect during the late 90s and early 2000s, a Trump favorite.

Looks really nice in the early morning, with the exterior filling out. This was @ 6:30 this morning (7.14.15), as I was standing at Church and Chambers.
