A new sign of recovery is been erected. Sometimes called the Freedom Tower, sometimes the 1776 tower, it is a great monument to democracy. Its a good thing.
Chamfered and tapered corners on the usual glass curtian, it has some style.
Speaking of towers, I was at the top of the original World Trade Center, I remember it. I’ve been to the top of the Willis (Sears) Tower too. Taipei 1 is a good looking one. The next link is a nice comparison between towers, measuring things up. I figure that a 23 second video is not too much video for this simple thread, or did everyone already see video of the tower being topped, that video did air in NYC?

Daniel Libeskind and David Childs, architects of the Freedom Tower. I hope they are happy with how it turned out. I remember how NYers didn’t like the first towers, not until years later anyway. I hope people like this one better.
