I thought it was an old photo of the twins for a second.

That is amazing. There was a member who mentioned that from this angle the two buildings looked like the Twins. But that blew my mind!

The ghost of the twins. They refuse to leave the skyline that rightfully is theirs

I much prefer the tower from far away than up close. The best angle is looking downtown from midtown like in the photo above. UP close, it wold have been nice if the glass was seamless rather than little rectangles.

Chopper 4 got this beautiful shot of 1 WTC peeking through a blanket of low-hanging clouds this morning.

Looks like they started working on recreating the sidewalks on Vesey Street opposite of Tower 1...

Haha, that would sure be something. The 10x10 ft. windows at 432 Park are already some of the largest single panes in the world -- a ~1400 ft. long pane of glass would be a bit of a stretch.

However, I do think there is something about the color and composition of the glass that makes the grid of seams more noticeable than on other all-glass towers.
