Yeah, that's true. Wow, a couple of guys in this forum/thread, are excellent fotographers. But the right camera makes the perfect-photo-taking easier
Hahaha

Check this one, the photographer was standing on the southeastern corner of the north pool.

Will it always be like that? Reserving passes? Or will it eventually be free to go as you want to the public

For the first couple years, you will have to reserve passes. Later it will become like all parks, just walk on.

Four shorter towers...

They are still tall and when they are done will look good but it's hard for me to get over the height that won't be replaced.

They have to control the flow because of all the construction. It must be difficult to deal with people and all this construction as well. I am sure there are gonna be days where the memorial is closed. Especially around the north memorial, they still have a lot of trees to plant in that area.

Let us please not have the pointless "which WTC is better?" debate.

To some of the newer members, this thread is strictly about 1WTC. The memorial has its own forum thread here

As far as I'm aware:

The original 1 WTC was 1,368 feet to the roof. The new 1 WTC will be 1,368 to the roof and 1,776+ to the spire, ~40 feet taller than the mast of the original 1 WTC. The original 2 WTC was 1,362 to the roof, the new will be 1,350 to the spire. Obviously 3 WTC and 4 WTC are taller than the original 3,4,5, and 6 WTC. The new 7 WTC is also substantially taller than the original.

So while 2 WTC will be 12 feet shorter(or 99% the height of the original 2 WTC), I don't think that's particularly noticeable. The new complex, at least to me, adequately replaces the height of the old towers.
