I had this awesome idea, imaging if New York built 2 600m Twins with a 100m Spire, and so the entire height would be 700m or something, that would look amazing.

Timothy Dolan, the Archbishop of the Catholic diocese of New York was recently elevated to a Cardinal by the Pope. The lights of 1WTC have been colored red in his honor.

I'd say 4 more height jumps and it's topped out (to the roof)

I still say that if they could do this for the Cardinal (yes well deserved) then WHY didn't they do the building in BIG BLUE for the Giants winning the Superbowl??
