Someone was talking about this recently and I noted that I would be visiting it on Jan. 7th. I did and took a few pics and figured I would share them with you guys. Anyway, enjoy. Two of the towers that are going up at WTC. This is "One World Trade Center". It is going to be absolutely gorgeous! (I'm a big skyscraper fan) It will be 105 floors (2.6 million square feet) and cost $3.1 billion to build. The heights are top floor: 1,314 ft, roof: 1,368 ft, Antenna spire: 1,776 ft. Not sure which tower this one is. The following are in ground fountains. Their foot prints are the original twin tower foot prints. This fountain is the "South Tower" foot print. Also South Tower fountain. Names along the edge of the South Tower fountain. I believe this will be a WTC museum that sits beside each of the fountains. It's still under construction. Another view of the museum. North Tower fountain. This is the Millenium Hilton Hotel. (tall skinny black building) I stayed here many many times when I was traveling to NYC on a monthly basis before I ended up moving to NYC. It overlooks the site. I remember looking down from the 32nd floor when I stayed here. The WTC site was just a giant hole in the ground. Because the pools are in-ground, taking pictures of them from a distance doesn't turn out very well. This is the North Tower pool South Tower Pool This is a mural outside of the park on a building. This is the same mural, but the entire length of it. It looks curved in the picture, but it's not. I used a panoramic picture taking to take a picture of the entire thing. It's actually straight. The following is a video I took with my Galaxy Nexus. I'm standing in front of the North Tower pool when I made it.

Even so, it looks great in blue, so I took the picture. I hope you guys enjoyed this. I definitely did enjoy visiting the site. I highly recommend you visit too if you ever make it to NYC.
