Sorry for off of the subject here, I am not sure if you guys already had that discussin before. I never know about it until recently when I discovered that Donald Trump wanted to rebuild WTC complex with same twin towers as before. I got the information from

http://images.google.com/imgres?imgu...3D10%26hl%3Den

I know it is old news but new news to me. Anyone here know about this?

Please forgive me for being off the subject here.

Yeah me too, like Trump said", "If something happened to the Statue of Liberty, you wouldn't rebuild it as something other than the Statue of Liberty. We cannot rebuild them as something other than the Twin Towers.

What a terrible comparison! The Statue of Liberty is a statue. The World Trade Centre complex was a collection of office buildings. One is an icon, the other not so much (come on, in the end they were just two towers in NYC's skyline). What happened on 911 is what MADE them iconic. Before that, no one outside of the US knew what they were apart from skyscraper aficionados like us.

Donald Trump is such a moron.

Anyway, we're getting off topic again, but some things just have to be said.

Trump's WTC are a bit of a step backwards.... Twin 'Freedoms' might have been something else though, but I much prefer the current renders of the complex thats going up.

It will be very nice that they rebuild the Twin Towers, but thsi time taller than before, but the Freedom Tower looks very nice and great, I think that the skyline of New York would look great with both constructions if they decide to buil the Twin Towers again.

I agree... rebuilding the two original towers would probably be the better idea.. but i think we should also add newer surroundings buildings, something like WTC7

I will only say it once here, and I will not repeat on this thread if anyone didn't catch it. Donald Trump is NOT an architect nor is the plan his. That model of the Twins you see by him was designed by Herbert Belton and Ken Gardner. Even if the Twins would be rebuilt, that is if the FT gets scrapped at good point, the most he said he would do with this plan is finance it, he never said he would rent space there. This post was just made to clear up the confusion, and if anyone has anymore questions on that plan or wanting the Twins back, please go over to the Twin Towers Advocacy thread over in the WTC section in the NYC forum.

Wrong. The twin towers were global icons well before 9/11. For example, I can't begin to tell you how many movies/tv shows had shots of them, songs with them in, etc. It was a landmark well before the attacks.

Yep.

The twin towers were the greatest buildings on the planet. Two standing tall together.

These shots from flickr are pretty recent, though there are still no kangaroo cranes as I predicted.

Me too. With all the delays in building this "Freedom Tower" I hope someone realizes they can still build the original WTC's before it's too late.

I'm sure they will be rebuilt, maybe in 25 years when everybody will realise NY needs it more than this Freedom Tower, or maybe in another city, but they were too important to forget them forever, if someday the richest person on earth loves skyscrapers, surely he will rebuild them . And I'm 110% sure Dubai will build a replica someday
