Flame if it makes you feel better, but he's right. 4WTC will never be considered the tallest in Lower Manhattan.

Sorry, a little OT but it's in the pictures here.

Will 'South Bridge' on West Street be retained there and incorporated into the new site? I believe it's the same foot bridge which was there pre-9/11 and survived?

That's reminds me of so many images of that day. Didn't it use to have ABC news lettering on it?

Yes, it will. The other poster was incorrect.

It will lead to the new elevated Liberty Park, located above the entrance to the underground road.

It is.

It isn't the tallest or the shortest for that matter. But it all so isn't pretty but it is a nice looking building.

4WTC is obviously not the shortest, 7WTC is.

They are much better than 1WTC (individual panel surface quality, not style)

Why are the lights coming from over there. They should try that trick on ppl who don't know any better. Aren't there lights at the WTC?

I think they usually put them just south or north of the WTC. They couldn't put up all the lights in the WTC with all the construction going on.
