    The World Trade Center is Back!!

    Although we can never forget what happened on 911, its nice to see the re-birth of the World Trade Center. Today 1 WTC surpassed the Empire State Building to become the tallest building in New York. While it will never be the same, its good to have it back as NYC's Tallest.

    Have great memories but now,

    I would be apprehensive...and I hate that.

    My step-dad has been working for the local IBEW for a year now on the structural steelwork.

    I'm gonna go ask him for $20k.

    I still remember watching the Towers going up as a kid and they were always special to me. When the Freedom Tower opens, I plan to go up it as soon as I can.

    I'm heading down the the Memorial this week with my parents, who are visiting from Florida. I've been there before and it was very well done.

    And of course, we will never forget.

    It's been a pleasure to watch the building really emerge in the skyline over the past year. Every week, a little more. Good stuff. Better late than never. :yes:

    Nothing quite like the post doctor's appointment hot dog. Must have gotten the all's clear to slowly kill yourself with fat and nitrates.

    I saw some construction guy and he said it's the tallest again man. I was like right on while inhaling a hot dog.

    Then I was like wtf " right on" ive never said that in my life. After a year sober my brain seems to be still playing catch up.

    reminds me of a Howard Stern bit complaining about illegals. He said we should remove the torch from the Statue of Liberty and put up the middle finger.:D

    You are correct but the new structure represents the resilience of the US, occasionally knocked down but never out. I'm hoping that part of the reason that we built an even taller building was to serve as a big pork bellied infidel FU to the Al Qaeda pvssies.

    the current WTC is ridiculous; donald trump was right; the original towers should have been rebuilt even better and it should have been completed years ago

    it's ridiculous that they didn't build a carbon copy of the originals?
