The new skyline is much better,but people with intense nostalgia will always choose the Twin Tower skyline.Beekman and Goldman Sachs do so much for the skyline.

New Skyline:
Sleek
Rounded
Glassy
Glossy
EPIC Skyline

Old Skyline:
Squared
Non-reflective
Great Skyline

In my opinion the new skyline seems to me to be more proportionate than the old skyline.

You downsized the twins, oversized 1WTC.
In perspective, it would look like this



The new skyline could never impart the sheer epicness and iconic sight of the twins.

WRONG the new tower is closer to the camera. You screwed the perspective.

I was waiting for you to post something like this.Your so bias against the new WTC that its actually quite funny.Also on the picture,it's called perspective bro.

One World Trade Center is much closer to the Hudson River then the North Tower.I think it would be best if you would stay at the Mega WTC Picture thread.

Except the angle and the location where the picture was taken, the perspective is pretty much correct.

that's probably because you upsized the twins and aren't taking into account the 2 other supertall towers plus 4 WTC which aren't visible from that angle due to the twins being edited in

I like the skyline with the Twins more but the skyline with the new WTC is very beautiful too

So if someone prefers the new WTC over the old one it's cool, but when someone opposes it, it's being bias? Get over yourself.
Besides i didn't mean anything by it, just that judging by the angle, the towers would look like that in that perspective, we're not playing who's got the bigger toy here.

This is the exact reason I like to come to these threads, all the time all of you spend with pictures giving the rest of us a "what if" kind of perspective. Thanks, I appreciate all your enthusiasm

You're so obsessed with the Twins,of course you're going to be biased against the new WTC.You don't even allow for some critique of your beloved twins.Critique,that in all seriousness,is quite true.

I like the twins, just like a lot of members here like a specific building, how does that make me obsessed?
And if you had even watched the video, you would have noticed most of that criticism came out of anger and how towards the end, they basically take it all back.
