That's true. If it goes to charity or mainenance of the memorial and the museum it isn't disrespectfull. Giving something to a good cause is never disrespectfull

Btw, I have pics

The view from The Rock at dusk when the site is completed will be amazing. I will be sure to visit sometime in my lifetime to view this experience.

Would like to take some photos of my city with this similar style of photography.

It's not my photo. I only harvested it on flickr. You should ask this question the photograper, his name is written below the pic and you can click on it to get to his profile at flickr

The problem is that coins ruin the surface of any fountain/pool they're thrown into. It's pretty much a bad idea to throw a coin into any type of fountain.

As far as charity goes it's nothing a collection box can't do and the amount of money is probably negligible considering you would have to get someone to pluck the change out and pay them probably right about what they're finding.

When topped out, will the freedom tower's roof be at the very top of the cranes?

This Tower looks great! Especially the way it tapers at the base, it looks stylish with the public square and the memorial.

Isn't "Freedom Tower" a bit over the top though, I mean you already have the "Statue of Liberty". It brings to mind those infamous "Freedom Fries" from a few years back! Was there any public debate in choosing this name?
