    You should all see how the glass looks during the morning. If it's a bright morning and you get it from that great angle it will be perfect.

    So...when will these buildings get their night time lighting? Any indications on what it will look like?

    I was thinking about this myself. Chances are it willjust be accent lighting, but nothing like the ESB. Buildings with apartments in them never [ have i seen or heard of] being lit in that matter... for obvious reasons.

    So I do not expect it to be anything dramatic.

    Trump Palace is floodlit at night, and for some time so was Cityspire's dome. I also cannot see a building in such a great location not being highlighted on the skyline in any way.

    The crown on Trump Palace is floodlit and, as you correctly mentioned, Cityspires dome. But that is considered accent lighting.

    Try living in an apartment with huge lights glaring right out of your window. It gets especially bad with all glass buildings. That is why it is never done. You can, I am sure, find examples where even lighting on adjacent commercial buildings were turned off or redirected because of this.

    I can see the insets on TW Center being lit at night. And of course, some minimal neon piping, but that is it.

    Speaking of which, they ought to have that on some of the boxes downtown.

    It'd be great if the building has at least the lighting of the insets.

    From the NY Post...

    "Related Cos. CEO Stephen Ross says there's a firm opening date for the giant shopping and dining atrium of the new Time Warner Center. It's Feb. 4."

    I'll share a few of my pics too. They're not of high quality but they are some of the best I've been able to get.
