OMG, it's already so tall...what a gorgeous tower. The cladding is so reflective, I love it...I wish we could have such iconic new towers over here in Paris, besides guys, our twin towers Hermitage Plaza need your support, a foreign support has a strong impact, so please if you like those twin towers by Norman Foster, please sign the petition visible in my signature, every single signature counts, would be our Xmas present...Many thanks folks .

PS: sorry for the off topic part...

EDIT: a big 'thank you' to those who have already signed, you guys are fantastic .

You're right, it's in a perfect spot to contribute to the WTC. Libeskind planned a descending C, instead we get a descending L

I went back to New York for Christmas and took some pictures of the progress on 1 WTC from my hotel and during a visit to the 9/11 Memorial. I know all of you have been inundated with photos in this topic, so I apologize if these following photos are just more of the same.

'Racist' noose found in World Trade Center sparks hate crime investigation
Last updated at 3:15 AM on 30th December 2011

Quote:
A hate crime investigation is under way after a noose was found hanging in the World Trade Center.
The discovery of the historic racist symbol at a such an evocative site has sparked outrage, with one commentator saying: 'This isn't the way to begin anew.'
Although the motive behind the placement of the noose is unclear, police are treating the incident as a bias-related crime.

The noose was hung from an upper floor of One World Trade Center - also known as the Freedom Tower - at some point over the Christmas break, according to the New York Daily News.
It was found on Tuesday morning tied to a stretch of regular construction rope on the 64th floor of the skyscraper, which will be the U.S.'s tallest building when it is completed.

Twitter users have been quick to condemn the placing of the noose, which is a potent symbol of racial hatred because of its use in the lynching of black Americans.
One man wrote: 'Racist COWARDS strike again. Have some guts and show yourself!'
Another disgusted New Yorker wrote: 'People are sick.'
It is not yet known who, if anyone, was being targeted by the object, as the World Trade Center has not previously been considered a symbol specific to any particular race.
A confused internet user posted: 'Really p***ed about this, but hate crime against WHO exactly?'
The New York Port Authority, which is responsible for investigating the allegedly crime, said it was taking the incident seriously.
'The Port Authority Police Department places the highest priority on crimes motivated by hate and bias,' the agency said. 'We believe aggressive enforcement action sends a clear message that this behaviour will not be tolerated.'
The incident mirrors a similar event in 2007, when a noose was found hanging from a lamppost outside the World Trade Center post office.

I was thinking that but he would have just jumped off the tower if he wanted to kill himself.

I dunno but maybe all of this was just a joke. I'm a huge fan of Paul Bearer and morbid humor and if they didn't find racist writings written arround the noose then it very well might have been just a morbid joke, kinda like "Hey, you think you could use a vacation? No problem, we have a solution for you."
