Slightly off-topic, but the USS New York docked near the Battery Park marina. This ship was partly built using steel from the old WTC, You can read more about it here:

I would like to thank everyone who tried to keep this thread on track. I feel for the 9/11 victims as well. The reason we don't want RIP messages and 9/11 discussions HERE is because it will only attract trolls and it will turn into never ending argues and fights. Our job (staff) is to keep threads on track and stop people from derailing threads. I've posted 2 different links to threads where you can discuss 9/11 and post RIP messages. People that misbehaved should think about their actions and should pay some respect towards moderators, administrators and other staffmembers that keep this forum online (VOLUNTARY) 24/7.

The brown is sediment from all of the rain we've received over the past 6 weeks.

Wow. Come on, can't you use a LITTLE common sense before asking such an absurd question?

Do you know how tall it is right now?

I just watched a show on the construction of this tower, and the background story was how they were trying to hit 1000ft by today.
