no one would go back into a re built world trade center. Also new and better building techniques are used today.

1300 voted which I think is to small to be a reliable poll.
By the way plans are already underway for the Freedom Tower.

I know. But I will miss this towers so much. People called the Twin Towers old, and the Freedom Tower the future.

The pedestrian overpass at the bottom of the picture survived the attack, did it not? Is the plan to keep it, replace it with something else, or remove it all together?

Going from eastern PA to NYC is nothing! 2 hours! I'm now living in Baton Rouge and drive to New Orleans (1.5 hour drive) whenever I want to see a MOVIE at the nearest IMAX or to go to a parade!

Seriously, you can plan a trip to NYC and be back all within a day, without having to get a hotel or anything. I WISH I lived only two hours from New York City. Gas is also way cheaper than when I went ($4 a gallon... and it started plummeting like a few days after I got back!!!)
I don't have to plan I'm from there, I just go to my grandmothers or my aunts house. Scranton's about a hour and a half away from NYC. You went toward philly and allentown my friend you took the very long way through pennsylvaina. Next time go north toward scranton cuts time by half. Gas was $1.75 when I drove to ohio and back to NYC and that was december.

I'm going to visit the WTC this summer for sure.

Hey I remeber that interview lead to a very long weekend of fun and danger. NSNBC was being alot like fix news. For the people who don't get it yet, the twin tower wont be rebuilt at less not at the WTC.

But fight hard so it can be built in Brooklyn. Right across the river, Over shadowing it's lost brothers. Who am I kidding there not building the twin towers in brooklyn lol.

Ummm... Are you serious? The southern footbridge is the ACTUAL same footbridge that existed there pre-9/11??? My God... I walked across it during my visit to Ground Zero and had no idea!!! I thought it was just one that was built afterwards like the north footbridge. I can't believe this. If I had known I would have freaked out knowing that I was standing inside one of the remnants of the original World Trade Center! I've GOT to go back before they remove it. Does anyone know what they're planning on doing with the footbridge? I pray to God they keep it there permanently. If not, when are they planning on removing it?

Update: I've looked through some old photos of Ground Zero and it does seem that the bridge survived relatively intact:

Also, this video shows a fairly clear view of the footbridge during the collapse of the South Tower. It seems that the Marriot Hotel helped to shield it from some of the debris:
