I can't tell you how much time it took me to decipher that "ORLY?" is actually "Oh, Really?"

What I love about lower Manhattan or place like Hong Kong over other city skylines such as Shanghai or even Dubai is that the towers are in such close proximity to each other instead of seemingly set apart in oasis of high rises. There's something adventures about getting lost in an absolute maze of quarter mile high vertical concrete walls so close to each other that one feel one can literally jump from one roof to to the next.

Authority Seeks Bids for Partner on Tower

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/04/ny...l?ref=nyregion

"The central tower at ground zero, designed to rise to 105 stories, has been characterized by some as a symbol of New York’s resilience, and reviled by others as a white elephant. Now it will pick up a new label: for sale.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey wants to sell the skyscraper, the former Freedom Tower, known now by its original name, 1 World Trade Center.

In recent days, the Port Authority has asked a select group of commercial real estate developers and owners to bid for a partnership interest in the $3.2 billion tower, according to a developer who was contacted by the authority."

I never seen a building sold before it was finish. PA should have never had, control over the WTC in the first place.

isn't it just the fire-resistant coating (the one that becomes a insulating foam during fire)? That's the usual explanation of red coloured steel
