1WTC's spire looks great at night!

If it only looked that good during the day

It would look better if the bottom section was lit up the same as the rest. And what's up with the rotating beacon? It's been broken for months now....

Beacon hasn't been rotating since last year. LED boxes at the base of the mast aren't working either.

The beacon has been on, at least for the last few months. I see it all the time, saw it yesterday on the way home; you just barely see it, even up close. You really have to stare at the spire/antenna.
This is one the lamest beacon out there, just another 1WTC letdown.

Yeah, the beacon is a disappointment. It's a great Tower, but for $4B it could have been much better. I remember when they teased that the beacon would look something like this...

the beacon is fine when it's working. It can easily point out the tower from over 25 miles away. I wonder if the cold causes issues, the rotation was all wonky during the winter last year as well.

Not sure why, I always thought the beacon would be as powerful as the one on top of the Eiffel Tower.

Me too. But I think it would look weird.

They've finished tarring and water-proofing the underside of the future sidewalk in the southeast quadrant. Once that's done, we'll finally be able to walk all the way around 4WTC.
