The Twin towers were so beautiful. Beautiful in their simplicity. They were very impressive

Those are seriously some of the best shots I've ever seen of the Twins. I can't wait until people are able to take similar ones of the new WTC.

Definitely at their best at night. The monotony of the facade during the day was overshadowed by the varied colors and lights of the offices.

Imagine how the new tower will look like at night. But I'm afraid that it will not look so pretty :

LOL, sue your police for violating freedom of speech and for being stupid. It's just image hoster, like imageshack.us, but much better. Most popular image hosting in Eastern Europe and most popular image hosting of European origins.

Uaarkson, the movie was made a year ago, went on screens in Japan in March and just recently was released on BD. I was also posting screenshots from movie I few months ago.

Nothing can replace the Twins, and only a fool would try.

Tower One is not meant to replace the Twins, only part of the office space that was lost on 9/11.

Tower One IS meant to be a Visual Memorial to the Twins hight.

Oasis-Bangkok, thank you for posting those wonderful pics.

Are you kidding me? Wait are you kidding me? Why are you even in this forum if you are asking that question? Did you ever hear of 9/11? If you are really from Atlanta you should know about 9/11

The post you refer to, is Disbelief, rather than ignorance.
