The cladding on both towers really makes a run to the finish.

It looks like they're replacing the missing panes. Only 2 more to go!

i think they need the roof hoist to be up and running before they can remove the derrick.

In brief, the design is pleasing enough. I still think its a bit of a pig though and out of proportion, but tower 3's taller frame should help direct the eye up and away and diminish the tremendously fat appearance of this tower that has all the grace of an overweight ballerina.

I wonder why they removed those windows? Were they damaged after hurricane Sandy and had to be removed and replaced?

No, I believe that is part of the track on the construction elevator. There's one on the right side too.

I see that tower 4 has the same effect, with their chamfered corners reflecting light, but in a different way than the
Twin Towers used to do and what One WTC does. Because, 2 of the 4 corners are pointing inwards.
I have always liked and loved that kind of special effect that it makes when light reflects of buildings, especially at corners!
It makes every tower even more beautiful and stunning than they already are.
