How am I kidding myself? The Twins were beautiful buildings in their own right,but in all honesty the new WTC is superior in every way.I think you're the one that's kidding yourself;not all the people love the Twins as much as you do.

THE GREAT MULTITUDE OF THE REDEEMED

I recommend using Google translate, this is an English forum page and it would make it far less difficult for other users if we kept this in English. I assume that you are having trouble finding pictures of the building's construction. I recommend Carlos V's photos at skyscraperpage.com, wirednewyork, and of course this forum. There are some days when there just isn't much to photograph.

Most New Yorkers hated them during their lifetime because they were so drab next to the beautiful art-deco surroundings, so stop revising history with your lashings of nostalgia. The old WTC were hideous grey boxes.

I loved those "hideous grey boxes".

But it's a new day and we're dealing with a half-constructed megadevelopment that will fill that gap nicely when it's ALL completed.

Most New Yorkers don't really pay attention to or care about architecture nearly as much as people on these forums do. Over exaggerating much?

Same here. And I'm sure lots of New Yorkers did too. They were an icon of the city; hell I still see them everywhere on delivery trucks, signs, taxi cabs, like they were still standing.

But what's going up will become iconic in its own right, and will become loved as time progresses. Just like the original.

When the original twin towers were standing I did not love them or hate them. I liked the height and the way the two towers played off of one another - like a modern sculpture, but quite frankly I thought they were banal. I did not admire the fact that they did not have large picture windows ... and the newer glassier buildings are more to my taste.

My favorite uncle lives only a few blocks away (now the new Beekman Tower is across the street from his apartment) and we used to go to an inexpensive little coffee shop on the 86th Floor (I think) of one of the towers for breakfast; something only locals knew about. Because the windows were only narrow strips of glass, you could get any kind of view unless you were sitting right up close to the window.

What area are we looking at in that last picture? Looks like the inside of a Borg ship...

That's the gap to the Observation Deck Lobby, on the other side escalators will get people down.
