In just a few short months, 1WTC will be visible from all sides soaring high above the plateau that is Lower Manhattan's skyline.

Aiyah! This is so exciting!

An act of evil madness is slowly being replaced by ingenuity, design, engineering, hard work, and a promise of hope

Those massive, wide buildings should never have been built at the tip of Manhattan. Taller and thinner would have been better. The classic skyline has been lost forever.

I predict the american economy will be growing very strongly around that time when all of these are finished, they will not be vacant for long. Our GDP will probably rising by about 3.5 - 4.8 % annually.

Those man on a wire images were sensational! I can't wait to snap some of my own photos of this when I visit NYC at the end of June. Will surely dominate it's surroundings by then...

True, but the line between antenna and spire has really been moved too far IMO. Chrysler, ESB, Ptronus and Burj have spires. But when a glorified flagpole counts as a spire they need to re-evaluate. This thing on WTC1 is just a fancy broadcast antenna. If anything, it actually detracts from the design of the building. I say, either count them all or make official building heights count only to the roof line. I know it's only numbers but when officially Petronus is "taller" than the Sears/Willis tower even though you can stand on the ob deck in Chicago and look down 150 feet to where the top floor of Petronus would be its kind of ridiculous to say Petronus is taller just because it's antenna is encased in something that makes it prettier.

No, it won't. The American economy is projected to grow quite a bit in the coming decade. Stop posting non-sense you don't know anything about.

As someone who has grown up with the Imperial system I often look at the metric system with envy.

Try this simple exercise:

Add 5' 4 5/8" + 3' 9 15/16" = ?

vs.

48.9M +22.95Cm= ?

One of my hobbies introduced me to the metric system when I was about 10. Armored fighting vehicles. The gun calibers and armor thicknesses on tanks and such were given in millimeters. So, I learned the metric system.

The hight of this tower only has meaning in the Imperial system.

I hope we don't waste 3 more pages because I had a few drinks and got ticked off one night.

One inch-thick (25 millimeter) STARPHIRE(R) ultra-clear glass, specially manufactured for One World Trade Center, rolls along the production line at PPG Industries' (NYSE:PPG) Carlisle Glass Works in central Pennsylvania (Photo: Business Wire).
