It'd be nice to see that Rebuilding footage as a documentary. Seems high quality enough that it'd already be done or is in the process of such!

Tower 2 definitely steals the spotlight and it's definitely the most unique looking tower out of the bunch.

So from June until September, they only did 5 rows of glass. There are currently 14 floors left to be cladded, I really hope it doesn't take them 9 months to do 14 floors if they stick with that pace. It's already been over a week to clad the 86th floor

the Barclay-Vesey building will always be one of my favorites in Lower Manhattan. Thank goodness it survived the attacks. Shame it's hidden behind the new 1 WTC

It's actually crazy how it survived while 7WTC came down in less than 6 seconds.Not tying to start a debate though.
