I come in here to tell people like you what every other person has been saying and posting. It's slow, I think we want people with a false sence hope to come to terms with the truth.

One really needs to take another look at this forum and its restrictions, because there is most definitely something wrong if it continue to allow people to quote multiple large images just to say "Nice pics, thanks" which eats up bandwidth and forces us to scroll as if we're running the Olympic 100 meter...sigh.

I want a new 500+ massive Art-Deco styled skyscraper in New York City, something like a ESB but bigger. I'm not sure if the new scrapers that consist of a glass exterior is appealing to ppl. (I'm talking about buildings like Freedom Tower and OBP (BOA)).

They have art deco all over lower Manhattan. Two of which are the 5th and 6th tallest buildings in the city.

If you want a new and huge art deco skyscraper the best you'll ever get might be the Metropolitan Life North Building. Hopefully someone will finish it.

Glassy buildings are just what is in style these days. Think back to the original WTC. Personally I loved it but a lot of people thought the pinstriped windows were a dumb idea.

Did you catch the second word there, "symbolic?" That's not an actual start to construction any more than President Bush standing in front of the "Mission Accomplished" banner was an end to the Iraq war. Sometimes politicians have big ceremonies to make a political point even when reality is far different from their symbolic gesture. In this case, the cornerstone ceremony tells us nothing about when construction actually started.

Sadly, to do an Art Deco building that size these days, and to do it right, would probably be cost-prohibitive. The costs for materials and craftsmen have just changed. Just as well, we can do other things now that were impossible in the 20's, and this gives us new buildings from our own time while giving us a perspective to appreciate the Deco masterpieces even more.

Slinky was right all along. Politics, Bureaucracy, money, etc. slowed everything down. But there is nothing we can do about it. Everyone knows we are trying to put up the best memory that will fit for the 9/11 tragedy and many argued that we are not putting the right. Even Donald Trump was involved with the conflict. We need to move on. Remember that it took 50 years before a memorial for World War II was made here in DC. I don't like the memorial. It doesn't mean I hate it but at least we got one. Do you want to wait for another 50 years for a 9/11 memorial?

Let's get back to the topic, shall we?

It's just you, the progress is just way too fast for me to see what has changed day by day.

I vote for this thread to be closed forever. I'm getting sick and f****** tired is this "slow" comment page after page, enough of this shit already. I'm disgusted of how some *******s acting here, and mods seems to me doesn't care. Maybe after this thread is closed people will think twice before posting stupid comments.

Looks like somebody needs a chill pill; way to overreact. And uh, yes, progress is slow, it's true, no need to hide the truth.

If you don't enjoy reading other people's comments, then no one is forcing you to read this.

Oh and for the record, this is my favorite thread!
