stood for, about who they were and what beauty they represented for NYC and the USA for Freedom, humanity and above all ''World Peace''.
They were the buildings where dreams were made of, just like the USA is. There wasn't a
bigger statement than the Twin Towers ''What made New York New York''.
It is just my opinion, you don't have to agree and can have your own, but I hope you understand it.

Dont start your fights again.

I miss them, probably more than anyone else here (you know why), but let's be honest. They're gone, and they can never be replaced.

Nowadays, for a building to be considered good looking to you modernists, it must posses a glass facade, caved in skin and the weirdest shape in the book which is a shame altogether.

Thanks, after all those incredible photos, I figured it was time for another 10-page shitstorm.

There are ways around that. Chrome's developer console is very useful for getting the URL of a great picture when they've turned off sharing. Choose a size you want, right click on the image, select "Inspect Element", and when it brings up the console, look for the "img src" tag. The highlighted line below is the URL that you'd use with the "[IMG]" tag. This is an example, but it will work for any picture on Flickr.

It was just mockery of the terrible way they moderate this thread.It's nerve-racking at times.

OnePointWest, please don't leave. You're one of the biggest contributors to the thread, and it'd be a shame to lose you. I know I get off topic at times, but we're all a family here. I'd hate to see you leave.

Well I am European and I really like this tower. I think it looks great and the glass is amazing. It will look even better when the site is done.

It really is a shame. It's not the thread thats bad, it's the people who post in it. Every 10 pages or so, it's the same rambling about the twins, personal attacks and just constant discussion on things that are totally irrelvant to this thread.

No wonder I don't post here that much.
