Torontonians walking around the Financial District may have noticed it’s been a bit darker lately. That’s because the Michael Snow-designed Lightline—a.k.a. the  glowing rod of light stretching up the Trump Tower that had skyline watchers so excited—is broken. Although parts that will help turn the spire back on have reportedly been ordered, one of the tower’s in-house engineers told us there is no definite timeline for Lightline’s triumphant return. Of course, a malfunctioning sculpture is a minor headache compared to some of the Trump’s other problems; the light installation, after all, isn’t demanding its money back or smashing on the street below.
