As did the original 1 WTC after 1978, which I think really adds to the illusion.

That must be an awesome job, I'd love to get work dealing with skyscrapers, but we don't have many around here.
When working security on construction sites, I used to love seeing a building come together from the inside out, or when patrolling a finished building, I love to check out the mechanical spaces- it's like one of those animated views inside the human body- not too far from the truth, considering all that mechanical equipment fulfills similar functions as some of our own body parts.

He's saying the antenna is on the wrong tower, but move to the west a bit so TWT is on the other side and it would probably look just like the twins.

You'd think 432 Park could rate a nicer mailbox.

They all had to get special permission? I thought they built them first (there are plenty of ~600m radio masts in the country) then the FAA/FCC reacted by saying that's as far as it can go. From what I understand the blanket max height limit for the country is 2000 ft even.

You may be right, actually. I don't know the order of operations.
