I've never seen a photo showing a strong glow coming from the cutting edges.

whenever driving in NJ in the afternoon you get that effect.

the face of the curtain wall looks almost matte finish and the edges really beam back the light. cool effect.

There was a ferry crash this morning. You can always tell when something's happening in the city by the helicopters.

It's a real beautiful piece of architecture and its view at dusk, is breathtaking. I have been there once it was under construction and then when it was standing tall. Amazingly beautiful and creative architecture!

Setting Liberty free

"BY JOSH ROGERS | The liberation of Liberty St. is within sight — a move that will also make visible the scaffolding-blocked stores across from the World Trade Center.

The construction shed went up over a year and a half ago to protect residents, workers and tourists from falling debris from the construction of 4 W.T.C.

“Weather permitting, we hope to enclose the south side of 4 World Trade Center around the end of February,”
said Dara McQuillan. spokesperson for Silverstein Properties Inc., developers of the building. Once enclosed, the scaffolding can be removed.

Although some thought of it as a necessary evil to protect people, proponents and opponents agreed it had more than its share of negative consequences.

“When Occupy Wall Street was around, it was a place for people to hide,” said Pat Moore, a Community Board 1 member who lives on the block.

She said the block’s blight also attracted garbage and held cigarette smoke. It was even worse for people living at 114 Liberty St., Moore added, because their entrance is consumed by the protection.

The scaffolding went up soon after a boy was hit and slightly injured from a piece of debris in 2011. Silverstein agreed to the shed soon after at the community board’s request.

“Even though it was terrible, it certainly would have been much worse if someone got seriously hurt,” Moore said.

When told the scaffolding was likely to come down next month, she had a simple reaction: “Fantastic.”

Small business people on the block couldn’t agree more.

“It’s a disaster for business. “ said John Costalas, manager of Essex World Café. “It killed us. Even my relatives can’t find the store,” he added, echoing a problem cited by some of the half dozen businesses on the block.

Does he think business will pick up once the ehd is down?

“Plentytime!” "

Awesome, I hope the cladding on 1WTC will go at least as fast from now on as the cladding of 4WTC

So this also means that they plan to fill the gap in the cladding, where the external hoists are still installed, until the end of February? Then they have to hurry up, they have to fireproof the area as well before they start with the cladding there, I guess.

Might feel weird for New Yorkers to finally be able to use that huge empty section of Lower manhattan after so many years. No scaffolding, noting. The construction site is almost like a landmark in itself.

No kidding. I can't wait to be able to walk around the memorial and buildings without all the barriers and fencing.

Thanks for the pictures, we rarely see the building from this angle. Good progress at the podium cladding!

Glass is visible at the ground level on the west face and a plywood entrance is in the middle, can't wait to see the interior take shape through the windows. Great pictures.
