Oh, really, is that the criteria for existence?

The other cams still won't load on my phone.

And it's really odd that the Statue of Liberty skyline cam goes black and white during the evening.

I'm not trying to beat a dead horse, here, but I think this shot illustrates why I was among those wanting to keep the spires, so that the building would have another connection with 1WTC. It's still turned out quite lovely and may favorite of the lot, but I do feel it's less than it could be artistically.

Oh well.

Can't get over how much better this tower could have been.. i bet the critics will agree. Overall not bad, but you get what you pay for. Larry stripped this tower of soul just like he stripped 2WTC of a masterpiece.

It fits better with sibling tower 4WTC this way. As long as 2WTC ends up being magnificent, 3WTC and 4WTC will serve as pleasant yet humble ornaments. Besides, only one useful floor was cut (at the top); the rest were ugly mechanical floors of which we've already too many. 2WTC should be a one-story-taller version of Foster's design with mechanical floors moved lower so a restaurant could be perched higher. It should be 1,362 feet tall like the original 2WTC.
