NEW YORK | Twin Towers of the WTC | 1368/1362 feet | 110 FLOORS | 1972/1973-2001
since its the 9th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks i thought they deserved their own thread. i hope this thread will be used to celebrate our time with them on the NYC skyline, reminisce on our memories of them,grieve their loss and be comforted by their memory.

Long Live The Twins

They werent very beautiful buildings at all, but they were just like bam, solid.

I wish I could have gone to The Windows on the World and enjoyed a beer while looking out over NYC, hopefully the new tower will have something similar.

Say what you want about the quality of architecture, it doesn't change the fact that they were the mightiest skyscrapers ever built.

I'll never change my mind that they should have put two taller versions of the wtc twins back instead of what's going up now. I like the design of the new complex, but those original towers were absolutely dominating in their presence.

Postcard quality stuff in here for real. I feel so lucky I got to see these two behemoths everyday for for year after year, easily the two most imposing skyscrapers ever built.

I miss them too, I always wanted to see them in person, and mourn for the fact that I never got to.

HomrQT, I agree with you completely! There should have been no question but that they would be rebuilt, even stronger than before.

I got chewed out on another online forum, for saying that I loved the towers and missed them. Apparently at least one 9/11 family member feels that anyone mourning the loss of the towers somehow demeans those who lost people, and inferring that I was not a very nice person for saying what I felt. I guess they conveniently ignored another post of mine where I spoke of admiration for the people involved, for the acts of courage shown on 9/11 not only by first responders, but by civilians, some of whom made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of helping others. I would never suggest that the losses are the same- they're not. And I would never tell those who grieve for loved ones how they may grieve, or what they may express. So why can't those of us who mourn other losses speak without fear of censure?
