[QUOTE=IanG;80267442]"Marriage equality"?

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/25/ny...e.html?_r=1&hp

The Senate approved the marriage equality bill which makes marriage between two people gender neutral and thus open to same sex couples.

To stay on topic: I am glad this tower is rising at such a quick pace now.

Wonderful.

Many people found them incredibly ugly. And as sad as it is to say it, it was only after 9/11 that everyone hopped on the "the Twin Towers were amazing" bandwagon.
Someone who admits the truth!

Anyway, I can't wait to actually see this thing. It looks so nice in the updated renders.

[QUOTE=IanG;80265512]*Cough* Uh...yeah. I agree with the new start, not so much with your other statements.

What? Everyone's allowed to have their own opinion. If you don't agree with it, don't post things like that.

optimum of course not, no 1's a more bigger pain in the arse than me. and i contradict myself all the time. I say i want the twins back and then next min i'm going on about how this new complex is going to look stunning.

maybe we won't see 1wtc from under brooklyn bridge but we might under manhattan bridge judging from this, it's an old render but everything's in the right place

and we all know the view is gonna be great from jersey, wish they could of kept the x bracing though on no3

just realised the beekman isn't on that old render so that would probably block out 1wtc from ground level anyway, so forget that !

I am Newbie and haven't followed the thread ... really. Is it ok if I ask whether this tower (in the pics) is the one that's going to be build in NYC as replacement of the Twin Towers? Or is it still in the planning phase? Has descicions been made?
