He told me that he got to witness the beacon color testing weeks ago in person and how awesome it was. I then started talking about how great 4WTC looks and how I can't wait for 2WTC to get finished. He said to me, "dude, there is only 1, WTC now, not 2 or even 4 of them". I said "yes, but there is a whole complex and 2WTC will be just as beautiful as 1WTC". He went on to tell me that there was only ever 2 towers in the WTC complex and once they were destroyed on 911, they only decided to build one to replace the complex. I told him that none of that was true and then he starts asking random people in the bar, "how many world trade centers are there in NYC"? 8 out of 8 people said there was only "one". After several people started laughing at me, I quietly finished my beer and headed down to my gate in disappointment

well, obviously there is only one "World Trade Center" in NYC, but there will eventually be 6 towers which it will be composed of, including "One World Trade Center"

Things will change once 2-3 wtc rises. Hopefully.

I was at the site a few days ago, people were all amazed and confused at what the transportation hub was. I even over heard a conversation/arguement between old timers, one side claimed the twins were taller while the others said the opposite. Quite funny.

Currently they are finishing the north and east side cladding of the base...furthermore there is now a dark net hanging on the upper floors where the elevator makes it impossible to clad the tower...

Not to get too far off course here, but doesn't this little story perfectly illustrate why Republicans lose elections? You lay out facts, your narrow-minded oponent refuses to even consider them, you don't refute his obviously wrong rebuttal forcefully enough, and he gets everyone else in the bar to vote for his side using a false argument. This is why "We have a faltering economy and a dangerously high national debt" is so successfully countered with "My oponent hates women" in America today.

Best thing ever would be if Trump Chicago ends up being taller than 1WTC!

I guess the majority of ppl say it's only one WTC in NYC because it's the only enormous tower there compare to when it was only 2. Yes 4, 3 & 2 will and is just as tall but I guess ppl are so custom seeing the twins that the other 3 will just look like every other office tower in downtown. Remember back then the majorty of ppl didnt even know the WTC also included 3 other low story buildings plus a hotel. Hell, look at 7 WTC, then & now, if u say that building is part of the WTC without giving it a #, no one will believe u.

Did you ever read that Dilbert strip, where he realized he could spout off any inappropriate thing that he wanted to, so long as he prefaced it with "With all due respect...?"

That's basically what you just did.

Haha, yeah, I suppose your right. Actually your damn right! But we aren't allowed to discuss politics here because....well, we might hurt somebody's feelings with the truth But, to my defense, I was in an airport bar, where most of the patron's were intoxicated, in a Democratic controlled state, and finally, in a "gun free zone", in a gun free state, so I wasn't about to have things escalate to the point where I would have needed to defend myself against a bunch of clueless people. I guess I was just more shocked then anything that the majority of the people in this country really have no clue about a lot of things that they should have a clue about

Damn dude, that would totally piss me off! If you started spitting off figures for each of the buildings, they would have believed you. It's so frustrating when people are so ignorant. Lol, you know you're an architecture buff when...

They should really just clean the damn windows already. It's almost as if that gap in the cladding was never even filled.
