I was hoping they would have lit the spire for the all-star game last night.

I hope they don't wait until 9/11 to light the spire but I'm sure they will.

Honestly it is NOT THAT HARD. Create a new thread about just how bad the new World Trade Center is and leave all your crap there instead of here! For the own good of the people who actually LIKE THIS THREAD.

WE DON'T CARE ABOUT:
The old World Trade Center
If the new WTC is ugly
If the spire should count or not

NOW JUST STOP POSTING THIS CRAP HERE AND LEARN TO CONTROL YOUR OPINION AND LEAVE IT SOMEWHERE ELSE.

If it means that I have to create a new thread called 'New World Trade Center circle jerk' then by all means I will...
So you don't want people to come onto a WTC thread on a PUBLIC FORUM and talk about the WTC.......because YOU don't like their viewpoints ?

What a Dick you are.

So not all fins on the side facing the memorial have been extended yet, right? I'm asking because it's quite hard to tell from most pictures.

One more time, for the fabulous ONE WORLD TRADE CENTER

Fight about the height

To show, that height also changes design, and the height of the actual tower is well chosen, I made this sketch:

Now you decide for yourself, whats the best scale drawing concerning proportions.

Furthermore, do you get the real one out of all?

Beautiful view of 1WTC from my hotel room! I saw it flying in and from ESB & 30 Rock. I'll visit the site tomorrow and post plenty of pictures when I get back.

they were shooting for the first week in August. Due to the heat slowing progress, i'm guessing that's no longer the case.

Number 1 is a good height.

Number 4 seems like the Ideal height, I'll say number 2 is the actual tower height

No, 5 is much closer. Width to height ratio is just under 1:7.
