Best takeoff experience ever was at Newark airport> driving down I-95 (runs parallel to the main runway) just as a Concord was taxiing and takeoff! I was a kid in the back of my families station wagon (touring to the Euro guys) WHAT A NOISE! and the view on the other side? The Manhattan skyline with the recently built twin towers! The year was 1977.

The floor count is right, up to 62nd. But it's 746' 8" tall. I think you added an extra floor in height.

*4WTC is up to the 21st floor.

Culwulla, could you possibly edit your diagram and include the old 1 and 2 WTCs?

Right-wing? That's being kind. Fox News is not journalism. It's propaganda. "The Rise of Freedom" Freedom Tower was dumped as the official name ages ago...before the series even began, I believe. The host is carved out of cheese.

Agreed. They should have kept the U shaped like a tulip. It's been with with UA for 30 years. The globe is only 11 years old.

Sorry; I should've said "tallest office building," which it was from 1899-1908. I am well aware that other non-office structures were taller.

Thanks for the compliment though!
