@ Bigreach,
I assume you are talking about the brown building to the right of the Empire State Building. That building is actually not in the vicinity of the WTC site, it is more in the middle of the Greenwich Village, Tribeca area then it is in lower Manhattan. you just can't see it on the recent photo because it is, for the most part, hidden behind the Empire State building, but you can still see it.

I'm thinking thats 7wtc that was destroyed,,but probably totally wrong.
If you mean the black building, that is 1 Liberty Plaza and it stands across the street from 4WTC. The only real skyscrapers that have been destroyed as a result of damage from the Twin Towers are WTC7 (replaced by a taller building of the same name) and the later-demolished Deutsche Bank Building (Now the site for WTC 5)

9/11 is a major event so the beacons should be lit up to commemorate it .

How Ground Zero's supertower rose above New York's 9/11 nightmare

It can take the blast from a truck bomb, or the fiery impact of a jet airplane — and yet, at 1,776 feet in height, the supertower rises higher than the terror-hit twin towers that once stood on the site.

Safety first, then symbolism: That's the message conveyed by New York's One World Trade Center.

Twelve years after the attacks that made Sept. 11 a date that will live in infamy, on a par with Pearl Harbor, the construction of the $3.8 billion building is providing the focus for a flurry of books, articles and TV shows. All that attention is justified, due to the skyscraper's high profile on the New York skyline, its huge price tag, and its symbolism for the past and the future.


Each milestone in the building's rise, leading up to its official opening next year, serves as an opportunity to reflect on 9/11 — but not just on the day's death and destruction.

"This building is a strong, visible image of our resilience, coming back after this terrible tragedy," architect David Childs says in a PBS documentary airing Wednesday, titled "Ground Zero Supertower." Looking beyond the Ground Zero symbolism, One World Trade Center serves as the template for a new generation of soaring but safe skyscrapers.

You can see two square bases of twin towers.

Hi everyone. I dont understand this, why does the original Tower 1 look taller to the existing WFC buildings and the Empire State Building then the new Tower 1 WTC. I know that in this thread and all the reports say that the both of them are the same height to roof, but the old one still looks taller. Thank you.....
