I need to know how to post a picture. You are not allowed to post attachments on this thread, so, according to the FAQs, I am supposed to make an album and upload from the album. However, I cant find the "Pictures & Albums link.

Copy and paste if possible. If you need to upload though, upload to -- say Facebook -- and copy and paste from there.

Go to a pic hosting site like ************ get the direct link (the bottom one on tinypic) then hit the InsertImage button in the post posting pannel and copy and paste that link into it, or if you want to make it manually write these before the link and after it:

I hope this helps

Thank you!

I drew a picture of 1wtc with colored pencils. I changed the color saturation and brightness only (dont mind the random blobs and the words on the 50th floor because I drew it on the back of an already printed on piece of paper):

Most iconic view, the old wtc with the new, in my opinion.

There is a small parking lot in front of this building, and in front of the parking lot is a wide open field with a 9/11 Memorial. From there you can see very very far out onto the horizon to the NYC skyline. One World Trade Center can be seen directly above the pieces of the WTC ironically. The shortest buildings you can see are the very tips of the towers of the Time Warner Center. To the far right, theres a sharp dip in the hill revealing the Verrazano Bridge. It's very cool, you should check it out sometime. You can take photos from the parking lot

Ive seen it from powdermil many times. I go there some years to watch the july 4 fireworks. This year, I looked for wtc, but it wasnt there.

There are four ridges. one is the Tourne/Powdermill one with tall mountains that you can see NY from.
The next is millburn/west caldwell. When you get to the top, more ridges block your view.
Then there are two more closely spaced and the rest is flat land.

We're six pages away from the 1776th page.

I love this building; did the original towers have blast-resistant glass as well?

Are the topping out beams just for show?
Tower 4's topping out beam is no where to be seen on the tower.
If the last column for this tower will mark the topping out, what's the purpose of Obama's beam?
