Seems like a lot of thoughts have gone into the design of this building and the features around it. I really like the water feature. Someday I will come to NY to see for myself.

But yes, some people are quite obssesed with height. Not my case.
Sorry for jumping on you, my mistake! I see so many height obsessed people here I've started raging with little provocation!

I may be wrong but from that perspective isn't the "third skyline" just jersey side facing lower Manhattan?

Here is a comparison. 1WTC is taller by far then the original WTC and 2WTC is very close to the original height.
