2. Blood money

I hope it fails. Larry Silverstein doesn't deserve to make any money off this. Besides, it looks very prone to fires. Could actually fall down in less than 2 hours. It's a joke, and I am bitter over the lack of investigation of 9/11. Sorry. They should have HAD to make it a park. He already got a shit load of money for the "attacks".

4. The glass and exterior panels have a special film

that blocks the projection of holograms so we don't have to worry about that...

5. Larry Silverstein is the guy who took out an insurance policy on trade towers before they went down?

Is this his building too?

7. Thank you

Im always amazed how NYC incorporates nature among the many towering buildings.

I've never been there, but one day I hope to see it.

Thanks again.

8. I was down by the site on New Years Eve morning.

We took the train from Newark to the World Trade Center station.

I wanted to see a memorial to my uncle in Battery Park before heading to Times Square.

New York is an amazing city and not all concrete and steel. Many parks and geen spaces intermingled throughout.

That setting is nothing compared to Singapore however, it literally rises out of a jungle.
