I know that there are a lot of buildings in the world now that are taller but the Twin Towers seemed to have a presence like no other building has today. The monolithic massing and sheer verticality of the towers and dominence of their surroundings.....awesome.

I love looking at pictures of them, i only wish i could have visited them in person.
