It's official: The new One World Trade Center becomes New York's tallest skyscraper, again.


David M. Childs, the architect who led the design team for the new skyscraper, noted the significance of the development for New York City. “In a way, it ties together Manhattan, which lost something because of that emptiness in the sky.”
The World Trade Center will once more tower over the City of New York on Monday, taking its spot as the highest point on Manhattan's iconic skyline. This afternoon, winds and weather permitting, the f...

Wow, pretty neat, but are the terrorists gonna hit it since we put it back up in the sky for them?
 
+Brendan Weingarten Airport security is just a big show. It's to keep good people in line. There is no way we can eliminate all threats on an airplane.
 
The view from atop of this new building won’t be any clearer for America and the real effects on our society from the original towers being dropped in what is largely considered a False Flag Operation. Under the guise of fighting terrorism, the Patriot Act was adopted WITHOUT public approval or vote just weeks after the events of 9/11. A mere 3 criminal charges of terrorism a year are attributed to this act, which is mainly used for no-knock raids leading to drug-related arrests without proper cause for search and seizure. The laws are simply a means to spy on our own citizens and to detain and torture dissidents without trial or a right to council. You can read much more about living in this Orwellian society of fear and see my visual response to these measures on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/09/living-in-society-of-fear-ten-years.html
 
MKULTRA.. overthrowing democratically elected leaders in south america and replacing them with despots.. Tuskegee experiment.. want me to continue? This is a babylon system.
 
.. the IQ of this conversation just went down substantially in the past 3 comments.
 
TSA is just a show, we see this in the news every week of some woman getting a loaded gun or knife past security because she forgot about it in her purse or some poor child with MS getting molested. Despite TSA it's going to be a lot harder to highjack an airplane with a majority of Americans on board.
 
What's with all this my building is taller than yours. Why not take the money and help starving kids
 
This is going to be a really big achievement for USA!!!
 
i think its great but still its not the same as the orginal world trade centers. But i think its still great!!!!!!!!
 
One World Trade Center, one world government, interesting....
 
I think its cool and good for ur city
 
I wonder what would happen if one of the wonders of the world was bombed instead of the world trade center. 
 
That is so mean how do u even think off that
 
I still think this is important but i don't think that the wonder would be rebuilt. This is something that is sad and important to history
 
Yeah ur Wright it is history that was sad never forget it like the rest de the world won't so so see day
 
I think that it is really cool and all but like she said! It is an inportant part of history! And should stay that way! What now?!?! Are they not going to teach about 7-11 anymore
 
YEAH! see what I mean! They all ready started to stop teaching it! It jsut proves my point
 
I love the architecture of the new buildings. Perhaps it could have been better IMHO but still awesome.
 
there may be taller skyscrapers but the Empire State building and the Chrysler building will always be the most iconic and the archetypes for all that came after
 
its 9-1-1 all over agian, it'll happen again soon, and that building will go down and all america will be crying again

I hate the American government's guts. They laid lies against Afghan's just to get into their country to steal some marijuana. They destroyed their own towers and took away lives of hundreds. Corruption will never end.
 
I liked the old name better. (Freedom Tower)
 
I like World Trade Center better. Freedom Tower sounds like a place you go to eat your freedom fries at.
 
I must agree, John Hansen. I was scrolling through these comments,and had to stop to laugh at that one a little.
