Who could ever disagree?
I disagree. The World Trade Center were never a major landmark in New York City. Maybe behind Statue of Liberty, ESB, Chrysler, Times Square, the Met, MoMA, Brooklyn Bridge, etc. If you asked people to name landmarks in NYC, it might crack the Top 5

Why you should criticize a personal opinion? Opinions are subjective.
I could state why you didn't included St Peter's Basilica, the CN Tower or the Mount Rushmore or other landmark in your list but I won't, because (of course) that's your opinion.

Btw, my top 5 most recognizable landmarks in the world:

Statue of Liberty
Eiffel Tower
Colosseum
Pyramids of Giza
Sydney Opera House
