the reason for that are time zones. you can see similar things for petronas vs chysler for example, when it is prime time for american forumers chrysler gets from far less votes of the first day to more than equal votes normally. nothing really suspicious

it's like they embraced you. It wouldn't have been the same had they been built exactly beside one another.

Yes, completely agreed. I always thought the diagonally placement (for lack of a better term) of the towers almost looked like one of those Communist Propaganda Posters. Of course the towers didn't give off any communism, but they evinced confidence,strength and protection, like guardians of the skyline.

Ironically, the artist of that poster, Shepard Fairey, also drew the Obama Hope poster.
I love that Socialist Realist art style, (although I disagree with its ideas) it conveys such power. Like the Twins did.

Get over it guys.....there's nothing to fight about.
WTC is GONE!! PTT is still alive and well. What competition is this?
It's like you're trying to compete with someone who is dead.

That's one of the most ignorant and disrespectful posts I've ever seen.

Not being disrespectful. Just want to remind everyone that the WTC are no longer around, physically. Just let them rest in peace.
As some correctly puts it, 'they are very much alive in the spirit of New York'. So let the spirit lives on forever.....and not start fighting over which towers look better.
