When we went to NY we stayed in a hotel RIGHT ON times square. that was reall cool. But we got real sick,sowe spent a week puking out our window on people in times square. On the last day we hurriedly went to ESB,but it was freakin CLOSED so we got a million pics OF ESB,not from it. We probably had plans on visiting the twins,but we didnt see anything but ESB and times square.

At the time I could care less about Skyscrapers. I might have like sears tower,Sine it was the tallest in the world at the time. But took me maybe 5 years to relize it got surpassed,twice.

Ill try and scan em. There from waaaay out in a burrow,and are only a few millimeters tall. There not nearly as good as your dads.

after 9/11 I was in first grade,Thats sorta whenI first really got into skyscrapers. I wanted to find out WHY. But it only lasted for a month. THEN after our trip to chicao,I came home,got on google and found SSC. Ive been hooked since.

My dads a fire fighter,and he had friends go to Ground Zero to help out NYFD. So we have ALOT of WTC and 9/11 Memorabilia. From T-shirts to Christmas ornaments. I never really paid attention to them until this year.

I do Miss the twins

I was at the top of the Empire State Building back in May 2007 and I just remember looking out across the city and seeing everything, and then looking towards Downtown and seeing how...incomplete the skyline looked, and how there was just this gaping hole of where something should be that just isn't anymore. It was pretty moving. I wish I had pictures from up there, but my camera sucks at night.

I'm 15. And a half.

Sorry bout the off-topic Austin. Great work on the city and the only thing that makes me sad about 9/11 is the loss of the people not the buildings. I never even knew about them until 9/11.

Is the NBC Building based of an NBC Building? Do you make your clouds or get them from the internet?

WOW>that looks great. I suggest using actual skies in your backgrounds. That would look sooo much better.
