It IS too late, can't you see that there's a core growing? NYC IS getting the Freedom Tower! If you don't want it, Deal with it. I'm sick and tired of people whining for the twins to come back! Accept it, they will NOT come back!

I hope the mods/admins ban/suspend any mention of rebuilding the twins. ZERO PERCENT CHANCE!!! As good as begging the GREEKS to rebuild their ancient coliseums!

Now that's outta the way, what going on in the site? Its way too slow; is politics getting in the way, or are they really just slow like that?

They are about four/five weeks old, but still good pictures from Project Rebirth.







^Nice shot of 7WTC and that red sculpture.

In one of the pics I have shown yesterday, the shot where the FT is rumored to rise, I don't see any cranes there as I do for the rest of the site.

I don't really know, architecturally speaking, I'd never ever want the old twins back. No offense, but I don't think they were pretty in any way, just two huge boxes. Don't get me wrong, though, it's not like I'm happy they got destroyed, but now that there's a chance to build something else, I'll say go for it. And well, as for the symbolic value of the old buildings .. I wouldn't know, I'm not from NYC, let alone the US, and I'd never heard of the buildings before 9/11 (I was only 11 or something anyway). So they never really meant anything to me (which might explain why I'm not eager to get them back)

And I agree with most people, btw, just hurry up and build something!

The only thing that looks like progress is steel going up.

Are you suggesting that if terrorists had attacked a less iconic building nobody would have really noticed???? Thats a joke. I think it was more the terrorist attack and loss of human lives that caught world headlines than the fact that an iconic building had been destroyed. To be honest outside the US a lot of people wouldn't have even know about the twin towers prior to 9/11

He meant that WTC would have not been attacked if they weren't iconic.

BTW some foundation work's going on the site.

^yeah I suppose, but they were an obvious target due to their size and dominance of the downtown skyline, but that didn't necessarily nake them beautiful buildings.

I like the "Freedom Tower".... wonderful building. Also the waterfalls look real impressive as a memorial site.

Go NY!
