    if you hope to get in the entire tower you'll have to change the camera angle.

    Well I think I will just take two shots (one of the same shot and base of the tower and another of the of top of the tower) and then merge them into one image. Hopefully it will come out decently.

    Its gonna look like a big mirror. I hope the birds understand the scope of what's going up here.

    No one seems to care about the birds.

    Hey, Zen, why is the upcoming skylobby floor two stories only on the north facing side of the building? Just to give people a nice view before they transfer elevators, or to provide access to more elevators at the transfer?

    You'll have to ask the architect. Personally I would have put it on the south side.

    If anything, it hinders the speed of changing elevators.

    I'm sitting here looking at pics posted on this forum as well as SSP and SSC and I noticed a few things.

    The cranes on tower One were relettered (and I assume ownership changed) from Lomma/NY Crane to DCM/ Federated.

    They took down the tower crane at the DB building.

    Also, at least, the tower won't be getting that ugly birdcage design that would have allowed pigeons to have many crapfests up there!!

    Pigeons have little reason to perch that high.

    It's where their enemies are, and far away from their food source.

    I'd rather the hawks perch up there and feast on the pigeons.

    The birds ran head long into the Twin Towers by the hundreds, and they were far from mirror-finished. So screw them, they'll be stupid regardless of what we build.

    Most of that was at night.

    Some migrating species rest and feed by day, and fly by night to avoid predators. They navigate by the stars, and bright building lights disorient them.

    Birds fly into glass and mirrors during the day because they don't see anything there.

    The Jets disappointed me.

    I braved the cold this morning and found what appeared to be a consolation prize.


    Too cold to get them at the usual angles, so these will have to do or now.
