Miss the WTC, like the viewing gallery at the rooftop. It was the only place that gave me the feeling of top of the world due to its openness. Everythings is below you except the sky when you are up there.

That is a very diplomatic answer. Kudos. You've made both sides happy.

The WTC could dominate the night sky as well:

The next few years, maybe...

I also find it ironic how it was a cloudless, calm day when the planes hit.

That's what's so ironic about it all. The skies of September 11, 2001 were as blue as any I've ever seen. They gave off an eerie, conflicting mood to the day.

Without any doubt I choose WTC. They were so monument and spectacular...Especially at night. It's a shame that I didn't have a chance to see them live.

Unfortunately for the old WTC it was gone before the use of HD video recorders became mainstream.
