Yep, that's the one. I would like to see more biomorphic/organic structures in NYC...the Freedom Tower will adopt a torque design evoking the Statue of Liberty...so that'll be cool. Any word on the WTC's progress?

And thanks for the pic.

OMG What a great building. I love the "screens" at the top, very different from anything else in NY. I also greatly prefer it to the previous design.
Glad to see construction progressing so quickly
