They put orange netting on the "roof", I wonder what it's for.

It looks like they are having some sort of ceremony or photo op up there. There's a big American flag hanging on the West side of the core facing where everyone is standing. You can see part of it in Rakos' picture.

Yes - and if you look closely in Weidncol's pic, you can see them folding (or unfolding?) another flag...

It would be awesome if they did. IMO 3WTC has the coolest design out of any of the towers. With all of them being office towers it would be great if this one were a hotel.

Is that orange arm on Cortlandt the crane we've all been anticipating, or is it not? What's it for, lifting supplies up?
