WTC always.
The Twins were sofisticated, simply perfect; Petronas are just one more, just higgers than other buildings.

I will always remenber my first visit to NYC... when I returned, two years later, they were gone...

P.S. Sorry about my english

WTC no question. I'm not a fan of the Petronas towers. Even though the WTC were boring boxes.... they were just so grand and epic... they just screamed power and strength and were the defintion of the skyscraper.

Now they're gone

World Trade Center for sure. Never got to see them in person but I hope they will be rebuilt someday as opposed to the freedumb tower.

Whenever you looked at the WTC from the ground up on a cloudy day, they look like they can go on forever.

There is a big bias over here. Of course Americans would choose their WTC and Malaysians like me would vote for Petronas as a symbol of patriotism

WTC height is impressive given it was built in 1976 ,

Petronas--well it can be seen from my apartment in Shah Alam City which is 30 km away.

WTC. it's more than just a box, look closely.

Petronas is great, but not that great.

The Petronas Towers cheated for height while the Twins never did that.
