    I'm still fuzzy about the beacon at the top.

    First I heard it was going to be a steady beam of light going up into the sky.

    Then a steady burning intense light going out in perpendicular to the ground.

    Then a pair of revolving lights like the top of the Eiffel tower.

    Then a pair of revolving flashing lights of morse code.

    Then a fixed light burning perpendicular to the ground flashing morse code in all directions.

    For Christ sakes which is it?!

    Looks like a battle of the skyscrapers is about to take place.

    I went to the “What’s Happening on the East Side of the World Trade Center Site?” presentation yesterday...almost nothing new presented, but they did say that Conde Nast has opted to take an additional 3 floors in the building.

    Great photos: one of the best vantage points for photographing One WT will be from about that same location in the first photo - a bit closer and centered between those two smaller BPC buildings in the foreground.

    Anyone interested in organizing a WNY boat trip?

    Once completed, and in warmer weather of course.

    Cheers.
