Architecture copies itself... take a look at old buildings in Europa for example.
I don't know... i think I'm gonna have to go with time-traveling Muslims. They're probably also responsible for the JFK assassination, the Great Depression, and the Civil War.

There are lights in 4 WTC as you can see in the second pic. In case of 1 WTC, the mechanical floors will have a faint illumination.

Dear Veterans,

Thank you for your service!



USS New York, Forged With WTC Steel, Open For Public Tours Today
http://gothamist.com/2013/11/11/uss_...rs.php#photo-1









Quote:
The USS New York, which is forged from 7.5 tons of steel from the World Trade Center, arrived in NYC last week and it open today for Veterans Day. Capt. Jon C. Kreitz, commanding officer of the ship, said, "This Veterans’ Week visit is a homecoming for us as well; we all consider ourselves to be New Yorkers, we all respect and cherish the connection we have with this amazing and resilient city. USS New York’s motto, ‘Strength forged through sacrifice. Never Forget,’ says everything about why we are coming to honor the sacrifice of our nation’s heroes - we couldn’t be more proud."

The USS New York is moored at Pier 88 on Manhattan’s west side. Public visitation is until 4 p.m. Lines may be capped at 3 p.m. Things to know:

Visitors should wear comfortable, closed toed shoes and look for clearly marked entrances. Guests over the age of 18 will be required to show a state or federally issued photo identification. Visitors will not be permitted to carry backpacks or large bags; however, purses, camera bags and similar items are permitted after screening. Unfortunately, due to the space constraints of a shipboard environment, the ship is not wheelchair or handicapped accessible, and strollers and baby carriages will not permitted aboard.

For the safety of guests, Sailors and Marines, the following are not permitted: bottles or glass containers; banners, posters or signs of any type; mace, pepper spray, or other defensive sprays or chemicals; knives, firearms, fireworks or any explosive; illegal drugs or paraphernalia; flammable liquids or aerosol spray cans; club weapons; and animals.

Take your stance now, will it count or not?

I say it will.

I think they'll rule that it counts. I just wish they wouldn't.

I think the fix is in. I'm guessing Durst has made a sizeable "contribution" to the CTBUH's coffers to help them to continue their valuable work.

Seriously, though. The spire will count.

But personally, I'd like to see Durst pay something for his sleazy greed in eliminating that radome. It sure would have looked nice. If I could vote, I'd say call it "incomplete" and not count it unless and until it is finished as originally designed. Calling that skeleton a "spire" is like peeling the copper plates off the Statue of Liberty and calling Eiffel's underlying support structure a "sculpture":
