    I know we won't, but I wish we would. I'd like your opinions.

    Whoever owns the property should build whatever they please.

    Do you all get a weird feeling when you're watching old shows or movies, with the Towers in the setting or background.

    How things changed that fateful day.

    I think it would be cool to see them again.

    What are they planning to put there? I just saw the tail end of Geraldo talking about something but missed what it was. I know they changed the name from "Freedom something" to "One World Trade Center" and some people were upset about the name change. I'm assuming it's a memorial. I always thought that on memorials you named them after what was being memorialized so the name change makes sense to me. I'd just call it 'WTC', rather than 'OWTC'.

    Should we rebuild them? I don't know -- I wouldn't work in them. If they destroyed them once, they can do it again.

    One tower and four other buildings. The tower is 1776 feet but only 75 stories. The rest is all glass. The original footprints where the old towers stood will have waterfalls inside them.

    no, i don't think we should. the twin towers were destroyed. if you want to build something new, then build something new, e.g., different.

    you also have to consider the reality, if you build the same towers again, that is just a bit creepy. imagine being a tenant in those buildings....
