Nice to see the gap between 1WTC and 4WTC partly filled. Still that lingering gap where 2WTC should be though. We can only hope for the best on that potential Deutsche Bank deal, so the whole site can be completed once and for all.

You can see that on WTC1 too, and it's been even longer.

3 and 4 are such a beautiful couple.

Look at the archives from Earthcam from earlier today. There's a ton of cool screenshots people took this morning. It looked pretty awesome.

Haha, that's not what I was going for. I was thinking that the clouds and the lights give me more of a Heavenly vibe than a Hellish one.

No, the cheapskate Silverstein removed them as well as value engineering the whole tower from the original. Blame good ol' Larry for that one. Tower came out well nevertheless, but it could have been more impressive for sure!
