    They are thinking how to con people out of the memorial park or whatever the original idea was and how to change the project of the now accepted building. With the goal of getting, you guessed it, more ofice space.

    ATM owner of the lease is using Donald Trump to do a bit of public "lobbying" for him.

    But I am sure you will get a lot more positive and cheerfull answer from others

    Officially, yes they can hardly wait

    Unofficially everything they could do to get the same kind of towers back up.

    Yup, it was to be called the Tower of Babel, but they then realised that name had been used already.

    Here's an early production concept sketch:

    #7 is almost done but the main site is still a big empty hole. The Freedom Tower (despite several NYPD warnings about proximity to West Street) is suddenly being redesigned.

    It's sad; last July 4th, they laid the cornerstone for the tower. They haven't done anything since.

    The donald says the freedom tower design stinks and came up with his own that look similar to the orig.'s but much stronger. Between the nypd flap and donald there's more hashing going on but if trump gets his way he will have it built faster.

    What do you know about the world to justify you speaking about it as it would be the US backyard.

    You can only be offended by something when you are fair to everyone else, otherwise you have absolutely no right to take any kind of offense.

    OK, let's not go down that road ... arguments about or disparagements of anyone's religious faith, or for that matter anyone's nationality or location, result in thread lock. Feel free to restart discussion of possible uses for the WTC site in a fresh thread.

    Thanks for reading,
    Eric
