I am deeply saddened to learn of Zen's tragic loss. He and I butted heads on many occasions on these sites, but in private messages had become good friends.

Although no one has officially died so far in the construction of these towers, I will never be able to think of them that way again. We have lost a friend, a teacher, a mentor and a buddy.

You were so proud of these towers. Their design, their construction and most importantly you were so proud of all the people involved in their construction. No one wanted to see these towers finished more than you and I hope someone in New York will lay some flowers at the memorial in your name when they are done.

My thoughts are with your family and I wish they find the solace they deserve in this tragic time.

God bless you Chris, I will miss you.

Mitchell

Chris, I will miss you not because your great contributions here in this and other forums, but because in the last months you opened your heart and where much more open than usualy, that's something extraordinary comming from a man of your age. I was amazed when you demonstrated your capacity of being mature, sensible and a comprehensive person. That's why I miss you, because this planet needs more people like you.

Rest in peace.

Descanse en paz, from Mexico.

You'd be suprised. Alot more "usable" floorspace in lower buildings, as less goes to the core, staircases, etc. Those lowrise buildings covered most of the WTC site, whereas now you have tons of greenspace.

Know that his wife and three children are alive and well and coping with this tragedy as best they can. This is the LAST post from Zen. God bless us all.

It's Long Island City. See the tall brown building partly blocking tower 7, that's behind Stuytown.
