ive noticed the constant comments that NYC should rebuild the twins towers either updated, or replicas. what is it about the original towers that causes such a response? to a londoner the old design was impressive, but is eclipsed by the new project in many ways; looks, pedestrian experience, symbolism. Are proponents of a twin tower reconstruction fulfilling their nostalgic wish for two near identical towers to return to the New York skyline?

We all want the twins back, however logistics and the plain reality of the situation that the developers are in financialy, anolg with the world make it hard. We dont want to create another giant bullseye for those bastards to try to hit again. I know it sounds deafeatist, but let the new generation of super towers go in somewhere else, and may many of them be built. Something terrible happened here, and we dont want to forget it nor do we want to use it to advantage the developers. the freedom tower and memorial fi tthe site well and with the light beam at the top, you will not be dissapointed. Let us just remember those who gave the ultimate not only for us americans, but for all good people around the world. 9/11 R.I.P.

omg. that video made me cry. just the sight of something so massive crumbling to the ground. it just looks like a horror movie, it doesnt seem real. the way that cloud is just following those people as they run away. :'(

I'll save this sort of commentary for another day of the year. I don't want to be the dick trashing NYC on 9/11.

For me, it's to piss in the faces of those who brought the twins down.

The 1776 ft. is a nice touch, along similar lines.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those innocents who perished at the World Trade Center.

May these new towers rise in majesty and serve to remind us that America is stands for liberty.
