What are you on about? When I saw this image the first thing I thought about was how reminicent it was of one of the fallen towers laying almost on its side. I think its a beautifully restrained building and appropriate for the site.

Now you mentioned it! I hadn't seen that! Now it looks indeed very beautiful AND symbolic. I love it.

WOW!!! what an amazing museum...it must be awesome to stand next to the "tree" (i mean the steal piece) , but wouldn't it be cooler if they built the museum like the WTC fassade??? i mean those pillows (sry i don't know the word but i hope you understand me)... so wouldnt this be good, i mean lots of people havent been to old WTC and then they could see how they looked in real...mh bad english or not...

I think they will. I'm hoping that tradition stays once the new complex in completed.

Go to CNN.com and there is a live streaming video of the lights in New York City!

The Tribute in Light is beautiful, I hope they never go out on 9/11 every year even when the new towers are finished.

Hopefully they'll do it in the centers each of the footprints in a couple of years... A new WTC doesn't mean that we can forget the old...

I think it's well done.

It would want to be too as it's costing in nominal terms about the same as the whole WTC complex did in the early 70's when it was finished...
