Looked through the most recent tab on imgur, and found this:

It looks like it may be Photoshop, but I truthfully do not know. The way the red on the spire looks just seems off...

...? there are cooling towers, the spire and anchors for the communications rings. What were you expecting on the roof, shingles?

exactly my point.
Now we can only cross our fingers and hope for the best and hoping for anything as such, shalln't be for nothing...

Could be real.

They seem to have spotlights on the rings now.

Sometimes this looks good sometimes it doesn't. From some vantage points it looks like a rectangle that someone started to fold but midway just said "**** it" and left it there. But from some points where it doesn't look like a gigantic rectangle and more triangular, it looks great. Especially wonderful from the Jersey side all lined up with the WFC.

2000ft/609m is the maximum height for structures in the US, imposed by the Federal Aviation Administration. You could probably go higher than that but i'm sure it would be a hassle with them, especially in a city. Though it's not an end-all-be-all sort of thing.

Man the more I see this whole complex the more am disappointed. We had the perfect complex beforehand. Unfortunately that was taken from us but if the idea wasn't broken why fix it? I aint going to just mope about it though cause One WTC is a beautiful building and all plus we could not even of got anything so be grateful that we did. But the orginal complex rebuilt with a memorial and more vegetation around the site would of been perfect, oh and stronger, safer and taller modernized twin towers... No doubt!

Anyway I respect the descion and to me the people were allot more important than the buildings.
