Yeah but that wasn't the reason why they didn't rebuild them. They were afraid they would be attack again. Wait how did we get back to this topic? Some post a picture quick and change the subject.

That is absolutely FOOLISH. I actually sent an email to TTA about that "vision" not too long ago. They're wasting time and money off of people (if there are people actually gullible enough to fall for this).

The wtc b4 was just about the twin towers where as now the wtc is a whole state of the art complex. i hope they do some good lighting with it on a night time like this on 2 wtc with the diamonds i better not otie!
Could I have that animation?

Would someone want to work on that "sawed off" render and show me what the completed Freedom Tower would look like beside the twins (for comparison issues).

honestly the freedom tower is just fine i dont think that they should rebuild the twin towers tes the twin towers almost fit perfectly in L manhattan skyline but we are slowly going into the future and just rebuilding the past i think is not a good idea

But if this is what drove the decision to build something different I can completely understand and respect it.

However, as much as a appreciate the new towers that we are getting I still do wish they were a bit taller and bulkier.
...I've said this before but it bears repeating. It was most tragic the manner in which the twins were lost. But in retrospect, many people felt that they were not very good architecture and were way too massive. They were a product of the '60's, and looked it. What is being built now is far better and makes more sense.

Beautiful!
In that comparison shot of the twins and todays 1wtc, i thought they were the same width, the twins look alot wider than of the freedom tower. Is that because the freedom tower tapers?

The Twin Towers and the Freedom Tower ( 1wtc) aren't the same width exactly. The Twin Towers were 208 ft by 208 ft, the Freedom Tower is 200 by 200 ft.
