    I'm sure they'll have the top and bottom blocked off.

    You wouldn't want people falling down the Survivor Stairs.

    It looks like they don't meet code anyway. That last run looks to be too long without a landing.
    It's a wonder any survivors made it down them at all!

    Small height increase?

    Quote from wtc.com

    Located east of the proposed performing arts center and north of the WTC Transportation Hub, Tower 2 will rise to 1,270 feet and be topped by an 80-foot antenna.

    Interesting catch. I believe they had stated previously that the tower would reach a height of 1,254 feet and then be topped by the 80 foot antenna.

    Absolutely beautiful. Bravo. Clearly the only building on the site that even tried to be iconic. Good for them.

    On a related note, the antenna at the top. Broadcast antenna or just a pretty spire?
