Off-topic-
Well, I have a question that bothers me for quite long time. In 2003 I visited New York city in the month of october. In many photos I took I can see this UC building which I've never heard of. I dont know what about it today, and I'd like you to give me some information and photos of it (it's probably finished).
Here's a photo I took and the UC building in the middle-

Wow excellent drawing. Please insert the Calatrava transit center between WTC2 and WTC3. NYC will have six towers over 1000 feet???

OOPS I mean seven if counting the spire on NYT tower

Yeah I'll add the hub when I have some time. NYC will have 7 or 8 buildings over 1000' by 2012 and by 2016 it will for sure be over 10. There are some megaprojects under design now. One, the MSG project, may be bigger than the WTC.

I hope and pray that once this tower is complete, it or any of the remaining complex will never have to encounter a terroist attack like the original. It was such an tragedy, and the process of getting this complex built has taken forever

By the way, is it true that the crane will be erected this coming week? If so, will it be visible in the skyline coming from Jersey or the Brooklyn Bridge?

as sad as the terrorist act was, it is only going to make NY stronger... these new buildings are at a different level.. im not saying it was a favor because it was trajic, but it created an opportunity for new development... half of rome burnt once right?...
