Its a very nice addition to the Lower Manhattan skyline but i think it would look better if it wasn't the same glass facade as the World Financial Center. They look too similar. However, once the Freedom Tower is completed it will probably look amazing!

I've said it before, but I;m so disappointed by the building. If you're gonna block out all of the sunlight on the streets of lower Manhattan, at least do it in an interesting way. I just think that this building is uninspired...... sorry

Fair enough but dude... half of NY is constant shade almost. You must be one depressed person with all that darkness cast on you at all times.

Nice photo.

PS: I looked at what he posted, and he actually credited you at the bottom of the photo.
