1. NYC Cheers As One World Trade Center's Multi-Colored Beacon Begins Trashying Up The Skyline

The Empire City's elegant and visually-poetic skyline got a bit of a facelift last night as One World Trade Center One — which at an ostensible 1,776 feet is currently vying for position alongside Chicago's Willis Tower as the Western Hemisphere's tallest building — turned on its beacon light for the first time and began dazzling the city with its hundreds of oscillating red, white and blue LEDs, almost as if to say, "Hey, look! I'm here now to start classin' up this fucking joint."
