Lower Manhattan really needed to 'grow into' the towers for the skyline to look its best. IMO Lower Manhattan looks quite decent speaking purely aesthetically, not sentimentally.

IMO the towers would have looked their best in between the ESB and Chrysler where it would look really climactic.

US unwelcoming

"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
Emma Lazarus' poem, The new Colossus (1886), is engraved on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty (the famouser present from France to Unated states of America).
:
Too bad the US is no longer living up to that quote.
I wish it was. I really wish.

Not as sharp as most pics on this thread but I was coming back from Staten is late one evening looking at that majestic skyline getting closer...the ferry moving and the camera film not right for night shots....moving anyway.....but took this pic anyway and now I still look and wonder how amazing the WTC was to New York and the World.....

it's sad to be used to the skyline as it is right now and watch those pictures and see the towers as something unusual...miss them
