I love the Twin Towers, but they definitely would look more like a tombstone than 1WTC, the Freedom Tower. Tombstones are grey, rectangular blocks. The Twin Towers were grey, rectangular blocks. The Freedom Tower is in the shape of an upside down and elongated diamond with a spire on top, nothing like the shape of a tombstone. It's also not grey like a tombstone or the Twin Towers. It'll be like the color of the new 7WTC, constantly changing with the sunlight but generally a kinda bluish color.

Yay for progress!
I'd really love to see this guy rise on at least a semi-continuous basis for a while.
