Strange, is Subway open to the public isn't it? Or don't tell me that it is the new restaurant at Freedom? Heard Windows On The World is doing great pre 9/11. Why did they pick to be the new restaurant tenant?

I hope they don't

I hope they don't put up the cladding to soon. We will have the glass forever but bare skeleton has a certain beauty that we can only enjoy for a short while .
