I wonder when these towers will get their first tower cranes?

Someone once had a schedule of some sort but it seems it is probably way out date now.

No, it is being deconstructed. There will be an entirely new building in its place.

I was worried the 9/11 memorial was going to end up being lame or ugly, but I don't think it could have been any cooler. A park with two big waterfalls where the holes are. Thee sound of rushing water will make it perfect. I can't wait to see this. I just wonder how the people that inevitably jump in will get out.

That will be a little stupid to jump in, as you would fall about 70 feet.

Someone over at WNY has the plans and it won't be as easy to jump in there as you'd think. You'd have to wade through a bunch of water and then get over the glass wall and then wade through some more water before you got to the edge.

Why would somebody jump in there. And We already been throught the whole, what if a kid thing. I don't see it happening. If a kid jumps in there, then their parents need to be place in jail. But when this is all said in done, it should be amazing. To bad I'll be in my 30's when it happens.

Did anybody notice the future 2WTC in that movie "Babylon AD"?

It was the headquarters of the future evil cult religion!

Or have you known that for ages...and I look like an ass...?
