    Finally Columbus Circle will look more like the important place it is. It's always a good thing when the city replaces concrete with greenery. And thank God they scrapped that glass ring.

    Nice photos Zippy! All the little details that used to go into buildings....

    It's interesting how that squat little building behind it is still there too.

    Talk about a lack of originality.....I think the observation deck on the Freedom Tower, if done correctly, will be enough for Lower Manhattan. This whole copying of London is typical of the 1840s and...

    At first I thought this whole reinstating the draft thing was a story planted by the DoD to nudge Americans back into realizing we are in a war. But now..... well thanks for the heads up. Amazing how...

    Yet another case of the good guys being punished in the name of stopping the bad guys. Banning photos? It's getting out of hand. Our subways are really a tourist attraction in themselves. Jasonik is...

    It's amazing how much London has changed over the last 10 years. My feelings are mixed. On one hand, they obviously need large-scale offices to compete on a global level and attract businesses. On...

    I walked past the site yesterday, and there's scaffolding up around most of the now-closed shops. The National Debt clock is gone, too.

    That vision of the future is so typical of the '50s or '60s, when anything old was demolished for the sake of "progress". People finally snapped out of it after Penn Station.

    Too bad Barclay Vesey will be overshadowed again...but for 7WTC, that's fine by me!

    Wow....if it looks this good and it's still under construction, imagine what the finished product will be. How did we ever tolerate that old, cavernous monster that used to be there?

    What's scary about this attack is that it occured in a first-world European country. (Not that the ones in the Muslim world are any less horrible) But it signifies that Bin Laden (if it was him) is...

    It's from that shot that you can also judge the full height of it. Most of the time, all the other buildings hide it. What's also amazing about that photo is all those glass buildings were built in...

    Trump must be annoyed now that his one-Columbus Circle dominating highrise is now miniscule compared to the TWC monster. That angle from Central Park shows off the tower's less beautiful side.

    While the views from the ESB and New Jersey may be good, I unfortunatley agree that it's going to look massive and overbearing from the street level.

    I voted against it because it's too generic. Let me be clear: I don't hate the design, and it certainly has some interesting features (like the 12-story high waterfell) but it should be more...

    I can't decide if I like this design or not. On one hand, it could be a unique "pioneering" new stadium design or a piece of trash conjured up a day before the press confrence. I'd like to see more...

    TheFreedom Tower will end up looking like any other random new building being built in Jersey City. I have a bad feeling that the glass top will be almost invisible.

    It's facade reminds me of the new Freedom Tower... but it's a much better design.

    Actually, I know why that church is stunted. (My friend's uncle is the minister there) He took us on a tour of his church about two years ago. He showed us things like secret hiding places for slaves...

    It would be the worst thing in the world to see this (almost) 1,000 ft. tower turned into another boring apartment development. Sadly, I don't think this proposal is meant to be a joke.

    It would be a waste to put up an antenna that size for only 3 or 4 years. Besides, I don't think the owners or tenants want any more construction work. On an unrelated note, has anyone noticed how...

    If that huge atrium does not have any public space....how typical of Bloomberg. By the way, I saw it from the BQE in Queens yesterday. (The elevated part where you get an amazing panorama of Midtown)...

    I do get the jist of what NYCmaniac is saying, though. When tourists come to NY, do they go downtown or midtown? The only draw to Lower Manhattan is Ground Zero...

    I saw it from the ESB observation deck last weekend. It already stands apart.
