No other set of buildings dominated like the twins did. No matter the angle or distance they were photographed from their sheer size and strong presence was always felt. These towers are missed dearly.

I don't see it. But then again I am a biased asshole, so why does my word matter.

What's remarkable (and quite sad) is that these buildings only had a glimpse to see the 21st century before they were abruptly snuffed away. I'm just sitting here thinking about this day and and telling myself over and over that what if this day hadn't happened? Nobody would care about them, as with any other building, people would go on normally and that would be a good thing.

I think it would still be regarded as a spectacular irreplaceable landmark.
