    Again, McCain isn't my preferred candidate (I'm leaning toward Obama) but compared to Bush, I trust him more in a "lesser of two evils" situation.
    Now, while McCain would have been confrontational...

    I wish Kim Jong-il would demolish this building already. Construction stopped 16 YEARS AGO, and yet the edifice stands without occupation or any productive use.

    While I disagree with McCain on so many issues (especially the war) he would still be an improvement over Bush. While he supports the war and the surge, I seriously doubt that he would have gone into...

    This is probably the biggest MTA failure in recent history. It was only five years ago that officials were promising us a "second Grand Central" to help revitalize Lower Manhattan. I'm not surprised,...

    Wow! that is one hell of a contrast. And I can't believe that it's been six years since 9/11. Six years in which, you, me, and many others on this site have spent following the rebuilding. I'm glad...

    Silverstein gave in, but he obviously wanted out of any obligation to build the FT due to perceived risk of future attacks. While Maki's tower is a shameful example of mediocrity, it would have been...

    This tower will be in the smallest and most banal, which in theory, means that it is the least likely to be targeted in the future (emphasis for "in theory").

    Hindsight is 20-20, and if we knew what Lower Manhattan would look like six years after the attacks, we probably would have gotten something a lot more interesting. While the FT and buildings 2-3...

    I wonder how a Bloomberg Presidential bid would affect the race? Does he have a chance of winning? Would he take more votes from the GOP or the Dems? Or would he take equal amounts?

    The good news about having more supertalls is that it will be harder to make the "it's a terror target" argument, because 1,000-1,100 feet will become the new "average" for height. Of course, I don't...

    No way this proposal will get built. Other than the FT and the new 2 WTC, I don't see anything over 1,000-1,100 feet getting built any time soon.

    I don't blame anyone from wondering away from this topic. I've become fairly apathetic about it myself over the past 2-3 years. Rebuilding for the WTC was the main reason why I joined WNY (and SSP)...

    Most marketing campaigns for condos don't feature pics from the "William Beaver Experience" that look like animie porn either.

    This has been such a disappointing building. I still like its shape, but its facade is just dreary gray.

    Your profile says that you work at the WFC. Do you work at Merril Lynch or American Express or one of the big firms there? Or do you work in another profession there like security? I would think that...

    Dream on if you think a maglev line will ever be built around here. I would love to see Metro North and LIRR refitted for maglev, but that ain't happening.

    Stewart is a little too far from the city itself. Westchester Airport makes more sense, but people living nearby are probably deadset against expanding the airport.

    The design of this tower hardly makes it worth building. Just because it's a 1,000 footer doesn't mean it is quallity architecture.

    I really hope Merrill doesn't decide to move out. I don't like corporate welfare, but I may be inclined to support it as a last resort if they are serious about pulling out entirely. BTW, I can't...

    These companies hold the city hostage so they can extract more money. It's like being mugged, except at least when you are mugged, you only lose the money in your wallet, whereas the departure of a...
