I'm sorry, I just thought this was going to cause a discussion again about the Twin Freedom Towers, which this thread already has had so many times, while it is so irrelevant. But I didn't get the "nuts" icon, sorry for that.

If people go to the Flikr photostream under the Manhattan picture they will see some even more amazing pictures taken from an airplane flying out of LaGuardia. Simply spectacular!!

not to get OT, but I have to enter my opinion and disagree.

You would be hard pressed to find such an eclectic mixture of cultures, food, music, activities, business and entertainment anywhere else in the world. Especially the food.

thats because of over population. additionally because most people would rather live in big cities for more financial oppurtunities. however in the U.S it isint as if one city has a strong economy, there are many

NYC is an amazing city. Living in brooklyn i find more appealing because it isn't the crazy hustle and bustle of Manhattan, and is also an amazing part of the city on its own. 1WTC is a 20 minute ride from where i live in Brooklyn, so i visit often.
