    Since 9/11 is approaching fast, I would like to share my own tribute to the Twin Towers and the victims, in an uplifting way. We are all excited about the new 1 WTC Tower, but here is my own little way of remembering the Twin Towers in a cool way. I visited the Towers in 2000, and got to go to the outdoor observation deck. It was just incredible. The attacks of 9/11 really disturbed me. Here is Depeche Mode on top of the Twin Towers in 1990. Great 80s beat, cool outfits, and the towers in all their glory! The last scene is esxpecially moving. Enjoy everyone.

    That's what the razor wire on the main roof was for, just out of frame. One of the things the PA didn't want was a huge fence obstructing the view, like at Empire State.

    A minimalist musical tribute:

    First Listen: Steve Reich, 'WTC 9/11'


    (I attempted to listen to it. Only made it 5 minutes. )

    I'm sure this question has been asked many times but I've never heard a good answer....first off, I like the design of new WTC tower but can someone explain why they didn't just rebuilt the Twin Towers? I saw a design that was floated a few years ago for rebuilding the towers, only taller, better, and safer! I think it would have been such a good thing to do, if they were going to build a sksyscraper there anyway why not the towers? I think many people wanted the towers rebuilt..so why did it not happen? If it had been the Washington Monument that had been destroyed, I'm sure it would have been rebuilt just as it was!

    Very evocative. Reich's three movements have different references for "WTC"

    Take a look at this sublime set of photographs of World Trade Center by Steven Siegel on Flickr.

    ^In many of them the light really brought them out even though they weren't in the forefront in the pic. Last set with watersplash makes me think it was either a fish, or a perfectly timed thrown rock.

    Stunning. They're still evocative 10 years later.
