you might probably want to go to the NYC Airports thread out in the Aviation section..

Living in NYC or its suburbs means it will take time to get anywhere! From SI it can easily take 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes to get places in Manhattan, from Queens it can easily take 45 minutes to 1 hour, from most places in Nassau about 45 to 1 hour, from Suffolk County 1 hour to 1 hour 15, etc. I never understood people that seem surprised at this. Living in the vicinity of the largest city in the US means commutes won't be easy. Still wouldn't have it any other way!

I apologize for my smart-ass answer then. I assumed you were just another idiot calling the spire of 1WTC an antenna because they don't like it. When people ask dumb questions, I usually respond with a dumb answer. But it looks like I made a mistake here. Here's a on me.

Basically, a spire's only purpose is for visual appearance or to "crown" a building to make it taller without the cost of adding actual, usable floors. Generally it has no way of sending or receiving radio/telecommunication signals unless smaller antenna's are later attached to the side. Wikipedia has a pretty decent description here... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spire

We aren't twins that's for sure

But in terms of culture, arts, entertainment, business, music, fashion, film, theatre etc... It's hard to find two cities with more in common or more closely linked that aren't in the same country.

I saw somewhere on the news today the last piece of the is put into position. It's an interesting short-length video.

This building is a one unique building with along history behind it. It is finally almost complete and that is something to be proud of.
