Yes, it was destroyed in cloverfield, more accurately one was leaning on the other.

I will get photos next week of the entire WTC site including the halted demolition of the bankers trust building (AKA deutsch bank) before i head off to a mets game. I will also get the 7 train at bryant park so i can get you guys some more photos of the window dropping BoA tower, and the reclad verizon building! I will also try to get some other angles of Goldman Sachs, including from across the river in NJ.

I can understand how the governor Patterson can dictate the speed of construction where public money is being spent. How can he control the speed of construction of the private buildings that Silverstein is building? After the port authority completes the site preparation the buildings themselves will not use any public money.

I don't like the design at all, I believe they should have kept the original twine towers.

Demolishing the old towers using flying plans was a very bad idea imo.
Tell me that you chose the wrong word in "demolishing". We well adjusted people like to use the word "destroyed", put into a sentence like "it's was an act of cowardness the towers were destroyed by Muslim extremists while there were nearly 3,000 people inside in the worst terrorist attack in US history."
I swear to god, the longer I am on this site, the more stupid people become.

There is a lot of rebar sticking out the southern core on it's southern face while the northern core there appears to be some rebar sticking out from it's eastern face (the closest to the camera).

Calling other people stupid because English isnt their first language is stupid IMO. Take it easy. You know what he/she meant.

If your talking about the square, it is probably some kind of elevator or stair shaft.

Reading the quote of the now-edited post, I'm pretty sure it was deliberately offensive.
