You know, the more I think about ESB the more I admire it. It is such an amazing structure with so much detail. I look at the lobby and I compare it to something like Willis Tower and I see how our civilization has changed in such a short time. Very cool stuff just to ponder when you've got the time to do it.

Has anybody a high-quality shot of the ESB lit in German National colors? (black-red-gold). On google I've found only small resolution photos

The antenna? I could see it happening once Tower 1 at the WTC is finished. They have a newer antenna on Conde Nast in Midtown, so I'm not sure if they need that + the ESB antenna + the WTC.

Anyone know?

The lighting looks amazing on the ESB, especially in blue. Have they gone green with the lights yet?
