That was an awesome movie. It was amazing to see Manhattan portrayed that way. I mean, when do you see grass growing out of the street in Times Square while a savage bear is attacking and eating a deer. The movie scared me, but it was great.

Not in this case, the FT antenna complex is being built as a replacement for the lost communication complex that was once atop tower one.

And of course to reach the symbolic height of 1776, which is a very important number to us Americans.

i dont think anyone would be willing to jump over a 4ft wall into pit of water ~_~

unless, what... they're suicidal? then the height of the wall wont matter

A 6-8 foot wall made from hollow glass blocks would be a far safer option.




The glass would compliment the glass of the building well.

Hey myx, didn't that come from the same conversation that ended in a big argument resulting from a comment about a dog and a kid falling into the pit?

I'm sorry but those few pages were amazing to read, people were so up in arms over that little comment. It had to have been atleast five pages at one point, pure forum greatness right there.

When you really think about it, what's stopping someone from just running into the middle of the road? or falling into the Hudson river? Nothing... I'm sure we'll all do just fine. A 3 foot railing is enough to keep the little ones safe, and if you're an adult, then watch where you're going...

Who said construction on the other towers wouldn't start in a week? There are no reports of delays and no sign that they won't start up in a few days. As for a ground breaking ceremony, I don't know, but it seems quite likely.

Great idea! And since nobody can see through the glass blocks to see the memorial the memorial wouldn't have to be built which would be enough savings to pay for the glass blocks!
