I can never get bored of NYC...
I don't think New York city is a boring place either.

This building with the historical reason behind it distinguished it from many buildings in the city.

Tags are a great way to subtly troll since hardly anyone notices them. For a long time one of the tags was 'Culwulla = Cum Stain'

Welcome in the real world kid. If you do nothing you will end up with much bigger problems and years of years dogs will be suffering. However I'm for a painless death of course. What are the alternatives for this problem. Streetdogs are not exactly the cute puppy type of dogs and causes diseases and other problems. You could sterilize them all but that cost a lot of money. Money that can probably spent better on humans that are in problems.

That said your are sure in the wrong place and it will be deleted hopefully. Because trust me there are a lot more problems in the world that are far, far worse than this. And if everyone is just posting those problems here it will get a mess.

Edit: I just saw your posting this in more threads? Damn come on.... Put it in you signature or something. People from all over the world come here and they all have problems in their country..

if not, than what is the current plan for the lightning scheme?

that's what wtc.com says about it:
"When lit at night, the mast's surface will appear as a faceted surface, while a beacon at the top will send out a horizontal light beam that can be seen from miles away."


the beacon at the top was already part of the first designs:

I must be one of the very few people in the world that liked the first design.

What is so cool about it is that it referenced the Statue of Liberty, with it's "arm" holding up light.

Thanks for the heads up! I normally check every day. But lately not so much. Nice to see all the progress made since the last time it was up (7/2/10).
