For me, I guess I just don't understand why people purposely go somewhere and complain about how they dislike something so much, over and over again. Hell, I can't stand the Chevy Camaro, but you don't see me over at the Chevy forums complaining about it. I just think people that do that over and over are somewhat trolling and just trying to get a rise out of people. Here at SSC, it's real easy to just unsubsribe from a specific thread and never have to visit that thread again. Unless you have other motives in mind

completely agree pisses me off, then there going to say freedom of speech this and that or if you don't want to see us complain then don't look at the thread..actually it should be the other way around if you have such a problem with a building, a building for crying out loud then you have some issues.

I think the Camaros are nice by the way.

Again with this? Get over it, i have. And stop acting like this building is the second coming because it isn't and it is completely okay to criticize it's set backs. Deal with the criticisms and stop being disrespectful towards other members for voicing their opinions.

First of all, i never even argued about the twins, i just know that if its not the twins your not satisfied. Second, if i wanted to disrespect you i would be cursing you out, last time i checked i didn't say anything disrespectful. If you really thought what i said was disrespectful you need to grow a pair

But who was talking about the twins? Who mentioned the twins before you? Clearly not me. And yes, you're being disrespectful with your personal remarks, and it's obviously very difficult for you to keep your cool when someone criticizes this building and so you lash at them like some butthurt kid. Maybe it's you who needs to grow a pair.

As much as I hate the constant complaining about the base and spire, WOTW does have a point. People are freely able to give their opinions on the building-Whether it's good or bad. My only problem with the complainers is that it's normally the same people over and over again(Won't say any names). It's not like you have to repeat yourself constantly.

Those who bash and gang up on other forumers who don't share your views are being hypocrites and should also take their own advice-Stop complaining about complainers.

All this arguing is amazing. I remember standing at the foot of the twin towers with my parents in 1972... the cladding wasn't complete on one tower and almost done on the other... and EVERYONE complaining about how "ugly" they were. "So boring looking", "They ruin the skyline", etc.

THEN a couple years or so later, when they started erecting the antenna, NYC went nuts. "It's too tall", "It's ugly", "It looks too tall and out of proportion", blah blah blah.

The spire in its current form on 1WTC resembles a number of old and new spires in NYC. In fact, it's even CLEANER looking than what's on the Empire State Building, AT&T in SoHo, and Conde Nast:




1WTC isn't done yet. Once the parapet cladding is complete, the multitude of temporary platforms on the spire removed, and the 8 guide cables attached, it will look much better. Also, all of these shots are from planes... MOST PEOPLE will view this building from street level and that mast will look perfect. Also, from even a short distance... particularly at night... the mast will appear solid like this:

I like the industrial look on 4 Times Squares mast. It's a real shame that it's barely visable from my window.

The antenna on this building is quite unattractive.

At least you can see Manhattan from your windows!

It's a shame it's a little farther than that from my window . I can't agree more. I absolutely love Conde Nast's antenna. Completes the most attractive deconstructivist skyscraper in the world, and one of my top 10 skyscrapers of any style on the planet, believe it or not. If 1WTC's antenna looks like that, I'll be more than satisfied. I'm going to wait until temporary platforms are removed before I decide if I like it or not. Grossly tall antennae look flat lout stunning and overwhelmingly high at night, which is what I know I love about this one's antenna. I'd remember that, all those who have already decided if they like it or not.

I can see the spire poking above the hills from places I have never seen it before in Morris County

I've mentioned this before; anybody looking at the spire will be at least a quarter mile away, considering that's the height of the building. The bumps and ridges and protrusions will not be visible from such a distance. Please, for the love of all that is good chill out. It's like having a bunch of really smart toddlers fight with each other.

When I'm in Morris County, I can only see the building itself and a blurry grey mass above it that is cranes, temporary platform, and spire. Maybe I need to get my eyes checked.
