I find it kind of funny that the most unassuming WTC will likely end up the most liked. And I mean it is a great tower in its own right in any case.

This must be the most photogenic skyscraper ever. The way it shifts color during the day makes it feel alive. The way it shows and hides its own details, and the reflexions... Can't get enough of this beauty! Love it! An absolute masterpiece!

3WTC will be complete before they are done finishing painting 1 Liberty...Not that it was an attractive building in the first place. But I do like sitting on its steps at night.

I might be wrong, but wasn't the crown of 4WTC supposed to be illuminated? I remember seeing a rendering back in 2006 with a backlit parapet.

the effect is lessened because of those abominable construction lights. There's a white LED strip on the parapet on the west facing side along with one at the setback. It will look much better when those bright blights go away.

Oh I knew about the LEDs. Just wish they'd light the crown, like 1WTC.

I wonder if they have fixed the tiling error on that outdoor area yet.
