"Silverstein met us in the blast resistant lobby"

I really don't mean to keep emphasizing this point, but I'm quoting what the WPIX11 "reporter" states in this TV report
http://pix11.com/2013/11/11/take-an-...#axzz2kT0Eb5dN

The curbedny report has better photos and LOTS of them. I can't tell tell the photo dates & I'm a little suspicious that they might not be from the last couple of days because one shows the construction elevator still up.:

This curbedny photo makes it look like Cortlandt St will NOT be opening tmrw. Cortlandt St (& 3 WTC base) is on the left, photo taken from Greenwich St looking east.:

Does anyone know what's going on with the floor below the setback? On earthcam, it appears that there are some weird lights on the floor.

IS every new WTC tower is going to have its on fountain. so far 7 and 4 WTC have their own personal fountain. Just like their predecessors except it was one big fountain for all 7 towers . Wonder if they are bring The Bronze Sphere back to its rightful place.

It's blue, like the lobby of 7 WTC.

How odd.......

As long as there is construction ongoing at the tower 3 site, Cortlandt Street won't open. Let's keep our fingers crossed that construction doesn't stop there in the near future

Thanks for the link to these gorgeous pics btw!

Will Femia did a very goo job with the photos.

I assume somebody else will provide more photos from today's opening ceremony. I decided to wait till tomorrow, when temps are forecast to be 10 degrees warmer...

It's not flashy or ground breaking in design but the glass reflection is amazing and it does blend in, and have a graceful, quiet dignity. As I have posted before, when all four are built out it will be quite impressive taken as a whole, and I think WTC2 will be the most beloved centerpiece in the view of the public.

Congratulations! 4 World Trade Center is now complete. I love how this country can get back up after a terrorist attack of these proportions. I think we can all agree that this building turned out to be much better than the renderings.

Rendering:



The Real Deal:



I am so happy that this is the second tower in the World Trade Center Complex that has opened. Now we just need 3 buildings (one of which will be completed really soon): One, Two, and Three World Trade Center.

Looks like Greenwich St still has barriers

The AP photo below (looking south down Greenwich St today) seems to show that there are still barriers on Greenwich St at the north side of Liberty.
Was anybody there today who could make a comment?
