Nicely said, it is true that unfortunately tower 2 is on-hold, because it fills the gap perfectly. But at least we have 2 new towers nearly completed.

Most iconic view, the old wtc with the new, in my opinion.
Where in Morristown is this?

Sure doesn't feel like it. I'm caustiously optimistic the spire/antenna will be included in the final height.

Personally, I won't fee like we've made it, until this building is 100% finished and open to the public.

I meant made it to topping out, The structural steel isn't going any higher, so it's technically topped out.

I made the mistake yesterday of saying this is Sussex Turnpike. I believe this is actually W. Hanover Avenue on the border of Morris Township and Randolph Township.

The circular looking thing in this view is that actual memorial with the WTC steel.

The original Freedom Tower plan was horrible, the current one is far better, but I still think that building there another Burj Khalifa, though with the strength and safety of 1WTC would be far better than what is currently being built there. Burj Khalifa might not fit New York very well, but at least it has the height which the new WTC should definitely have had in my opinion
