    Twin Towers, but they will never happen unfourtunatly.


    The Freedom Tower is a joke, stupid 65 floors with 40-55 floor buildings around it.

    yes, that's so stupid, creat than a tower with all the floors to the top of the building and not like the design of the FT, it's roof is on 541 metres and the floors go only up to 65 or 70.

    that's nothing for the city of NY

    We have a right to be height fanatics.


    This is what makes a skyscraper cool.

    40% Design
    50% height
    10% how it blends into the skyline

    We are getting 60 floors towers were two 110 floor GIANTS stood. These towers are fat too, if theywere thin I would have less of a problem.

    Don't like either.

    I would liek the twin towers, but maybe a different color (black? Brushed steel?) and with a slight twist up the height of the building.

    A slight angle at the roof section would also be interesting. Make it look like the TT, but like it had a modernization. Same basic verticality, no horizontal bands, and no all-aluminum 1970's facade.


    Oh, also, no mention of Trump anywhere on it.

    LOL, except I'd change it to be only 5% intriguingly weird and 5% freudian penis envy.

    May 20, 2005 -- Donald Trump is a caricature of himself, and his arrogance is obnoxious ("Egghead in Trump's Face," May 18).
    But I want him in charge of the rebuilding of the World Trade Center.

    Period. End of story.

    One the one hand, we have a showman with an enormous ego, but an even more enormous love of New York City.

    On the other, we have a childish egghead, who has drafted a horrid blueprint for an embarrassingly ugly building.

    It's not a tough choice.

    After years of ridiculous infighting and inertia, I can think of no better person to lead this effort.



    I'm on Trump's team, because someone who really loves New York has an innate knowledge of what is best for New York. Terrence Lavin

    The Post is to be commended for keeping this issue in the spotlight.

    Most of the rest of the media, including The New York Times, chooses to ignore it or chastise anyone who dares advocate the return of the Twin Towers. Boris Docevski

    Building anything but the Twin Towers will be a trophy to the people that knocked them down.

    Ratings of The Apprentice Finale were up last night. I doubt we will be hearing much more of this out of Trump. It will be interesting to see if he sticks with it.
