No, they hired a famous sculptor to make a new one.

The southern tower crane is back to normal.

It was half a joke and half serious. I still want a steel latticework tower on top of the Freedom Tower, sort of like the first spire, but a little larger!

Has anyone seen the new Sharp flat screen TV's in their new commercial?

There are several of them being carried around by dancers, and it looks as though they show the New York skyline with the Freedom Tower in the background!

Looks like the tower has been in films and TV commercials even before
it's completed!! I'm quite sure that it will be the "new star" in films and TV as the backdrop in most New York City scenes.

Could you post a Youtube video of it or a picture if possible? I'm sure it will be interesting to see. Funny how the other three towers have been in public view for over a year now, but they are not as popular I guess because people are never up to date on these projects. Most people will say that they are not as iconic as the Twins, but in six years, the same people will be saying that they are even more amazing and iconic than the old WTC.

Maybe because construction for them hasn't started yet.

The Freedom Tower, at this point, seems to be the most talked about and most antisipated tower - mainly because since most people realise that the Twins aren't going to be rebuit, that they feel that SOMETHING needs to get back on the skyline scene and reclaim the skies over Ground Zero.

Or because it will be the tallest building in the complex - as tall as the old Twins.

That is how to build a skyscraper - Concrete columns with steel beams in the core.
