I’m in love with a building – One World Trade Center

I was downtown yesterday for a meeting to discuss the picnic for the 9/11 volunteers, first responders and recovery workers, and I was amazed with the progress they’re making on One World Trade Center (aka the Freedom Tower, but I hate hate hate hate hate that name).

My pictures don’t capture the sheer beauty of it. Christ it’s going to be stunning. One World Trade Center, will you marry me?

  1. I went downtown for the first time in a good while recently. I came around the corner and saw that building and it completely knocked my socks off. I totally agree with all aspects of your reaction except the marital part.

  2. Yeah, no one I’ve talked to wants to, unfortunately. Also, do we even need all these new buildings? Isn’t there a lot of available office space around the city?

    But I want just this one. All the other news ones are the mistakes. Just this beautiful one would have sufficed.
