They are moving fast finishing up Cortlandt Way. They also are removing more fencing on Church persumably in coordination with the opening of the remainder of Cortlandt Way…


#1764

I check Earthcam nightly in dwindling hopes that they light those mech floors on 3. Anyway, looks like the Tribute in Light is up. A week out. Which made me realize 9/11 is on a Tuesday again.


#1765

More of Church paved last night. Looks like they will be opening the remainder of Cortlandt Way and possibly the crosswalk by 9/11…

EDIT:

Another new crosswalk opening along with the remainder of Cortlandt way…


#1766

It’s finally here:


#1767

Beautiful

Cortlandt Way cobbled sidewalk open to pedestrians:

Putting that new pavement to good use:

So I was looking at Earthcam tonight and had 2 questions (please click the pictures to see the larger sizes):

What happened to the uplights that they had here on the steel beams? They seemed to be turned off now?

Also, are these lights here or reflections?


#1771

The first photo, they do seem to be turned off. Second photo, that does not look like a reflection but actual lights at the top of each beams of metal clad in the indent


#1772

The lights on the beams have only been turned on around the lobby beams from what I’ve seen the last few nights I’ve walked by. As for the top I believe that is the permanent crown lighting.


#1773

Are they ever going to light those mechanical floors just below the crown? I hate seeing that dark ban of floors.


#1774

I keep hoping they will and I could have sworn I saw it lit in renders but multiple people on this thread said it’s not likely. I wish they would light them too like One.


#1775

I’d love to see those lights too, but let’s be honest, have we ever seen a tower that has decorative lighting in mechanical levels? I don’t think it’s going to happen, but we’ll see. It’s kinda just like One57 again


#1776

From Earthcam.

3WTC looking good this am. I wonder what is the deal with the missing window panel on the SE corner?


#1777

So mad they butchered this tower ugh. It still looks good though.


#1778

1 WTC has it on its mechanical floors directly above and below the observatory. Hoping at the very least they can try something like that.


#1779

It really would make a world of difference. I understand 4WTC only having the two lighting strips in the front. It reflects the minimalism of the tower.

But this building has lit cross-bracing all the way up and it kinda fizzles out with that dark space up top before the roof.

I would argue that the comm ring on the One should be lit too for the same visual reasons.

Passed the 3 World Trade Center just the other day!
