You see guys what makes me mad - all these disputes about the money etc. I know no one wants to waste money but - see - it is the ICON. It goes to generations, so in my opinion it is worth any money. Besides, let's say - how much money was wasted in Iraq in recent years? Dozens of WTC sites could be built for that...

Sincerely yours,

Pavel Rezvushkin

Soon probably the first glass pannels should be there (cladding)... or its early yet?

I wasn't really keen on the new WTC area as I was a supporter of rebuilding the twins, but it really is looking superb so far. Cannot wait until it is completed!

I'm betting that the new building will be a lot like the Eiffel tower when it's completed. Met with lots of skepticism at first, and perhaps some disappointment. But over time, it will really grow on people, until it becomes THE iconic structure of the city.

Thank you, DinoVabec!

Well, guys - seems like things are not too bad. 7 WTC is up and running, two towers and the memorial will surely be completed. Another two towers... well, I'm sure they will also be completed. Yes, with fundraising problems and maybe even scandals; yes, with moans and groans, but I'm sure so. So these four will form the core of the iconic site - and who would dare then to refuse from finishing it when only performing arts center and transportation hub are left?!

I hope that 5 WTC will also be built but, being honest, I hate the current design.

And one more important thing. I'm just happy that up to this date the common sense had always played its role and this fantastic project has always been escaping from all the dangers and hazards - sometimes in the last second. Let's look back just at the "decision" to make 2 WTC and 3 WTC "stump" buildings! Not quite the thing to do, huh? But it was a serious decision, and I can recall many like that one.

And it is awesome that there are people who resist these "projects". They might seem foolhardy at the time, but they DO resist. And I'm sure they understand that our children wouldn't forgive us if we don't rebuild this world wonder as it should be rebuilt only because of our meaningless fussing and fighting and nasty petty intrigues.

So keep going, the World Trade Center complex! It's a long road, but walk and ye shall reach!

Sincerely yours,

Pavel Rezvushkin

That's what happened to the original WTC Towers.
