Take all the pictures you want. But please don't block the sidewalks. There really is little else that's worse in New York than tourists either walking too slowly or just standing in the middle of the sidewalk. Enjoy the city...just don't get in the way.

Except New Yorkers being in such a hurry that they run over anyone that gets in their way! Things will still be there, slow down in enjoying life.

It is a good article. But don't you think that we should be much more careful about throwing stuff with such information in the trash on the street? I think it is a very irresponsible thing especially after 9.11.

Yeah, what if it were to mistakingly fall into the hands of a terrorist? God forbid, that would be all we needed!!

But then again, they would have a much harder time this time around in attacking the design.

**** you. So being pro-freedom and pro-Constitution is radical Marxist? Well, then Marxism is awesome. And I suppose that means being a right-wing capitalist means you hate freedom, human rights, and democracy. That sounds right.

Anyone know what is going on near the ramp. It looks like they are setting up for something and they put flags up and down the ramp?

Sure, a bit more careful. But as I stated, it's by no means the end of the world if someone mischievous gets their hands on it.

PA PROBERS TRASH TOWERING BLUEPRINT IDIOTS

By LUKAS I. ALPERT

April 19, 2008 --

The Port Authority took it on the chin yesterday, with officials inside the agency blaming overwhelming bureaucracy for the major security lapse that allowed confidential blueprints of the planned Freedom Tower to be tossed out on the street to be found by a homeless man.

"Maybe we should hire the homeless man to clean up the messes that the Port Authority bureaucracy makes," quipped one high-ranking source within the agency.

The discovery has led to an investigation by the agency's inspector general, who is trying to determine who is responsible for carelessly dumping the plans.

One set of the plans had pages missing.

Three investigators visited The Post newsroom yesterday to go over and photograph the blueprints.

They declined to discuss what leads they had developed.

After garbage-diver Mike Fleming discovered two sets of the sensitive floor-by-floor schematics laying in a city trash can, he turned the detailed documents over to The Post.

Experts say there was enough detail in the blueprints to lead to a devastating terrorist attack.

Port Authority chief spokeswoman Candace McAdams would only say, "Our inspector general is still investigating, and we will take whatever action is necessary."

Copies of the building's plans were distributed to PA officials, architects and contractors.

Gone and most certainly forgotten! The newer present design gives a cleaner sleeker more beautiful and elegant look.

Yeah, I thought the old design horrible. Made me wanna I didn't like the new design much at first, but it has grown on me a lot and can't wait to see the bad boy finished. I also noticed today they're making excellent progress on the excavation for tower 2.

I agree, the new design is a cleaner, sleeker more beautiful look until it stops and the roofline and then the spire (antenna?) is just kind of stuck on top. It kind of looks like two different groups of people did the designs and stuck them together. The design would've looked much better if they continued with an integrated spire like the original design had.
