Yeah build crap copies of our buildings in Jersey won't make Jersey any better, it's still gonna sick over there and they'll still be faking like their New Yorkers. This is the real world buddy remember that when you talk BS about something that's never going to happen.
Msradell and mclancer that's the job of the state government you don't like what our city and state doing down there writing your governor about. Believe me ppl in NYC aren't embarrassed in the less bit.

The Twin Towers were not Crap, they symbolized Americas financial strength

Don't try to flip my words buddy it's not going to work. I said crap copies of our buildings, where did you get twin towers from. I could be talking about any building in the city. And you mean Lower Manhattan financial strength. Midtown's number one in that department even when the WTC was around.

I see that the "wind frame" design of the office floors allowed them to put up the next section of corner node on the SW . (The mechanical floors are a braced wind frame)

The perimeter steel resists almost all of the wind load and about half of the gravity load (the core takes the rest).

If the tower were to be 374 feet high the bottom half would be finished.

The base is finished, as far as structure goes, and now the office floors rise.

All the "rebuild the Twins" folks. Nothing 20 years of therapy can't fix.

Remember the past, live in the present, build the future.

true, the twins were very ugly to look at (white rectangles, hard to believe they were tallest in the world at one point :P) but that doesnt undermine the fact that thousands died on that day they collapsed. may they rest in peace
