TWIN TOWERS

My husband and I have said all along the same thing that Donald Trump is saying: we want the WTC back. Not a garden of peaceful tranquility, not a beam of light, but the same symbol of capitalism and prosperity that the WTC was. I wish it could happen.

2 While it's a nice idea, in theory, it is very impractical. There is a greater demand for residential real estate in NYC than there is for office space. Any development of the site, if considered practically, would be of dual use. Considering that 7 Word Trade (my old office) is nearing completion and has no tenants slated to move in, building yet another office building, or two, or two that happen to be 4 times the size, is a burden that NYC taxpayers need to consider. I don't buy into that nonsense that building anything other than [insert building of choice] is "letting the terrorists win". Pride is a deadly sin. It shouldn't motivate what we build in this city. That said, I hate the "Freedom Tower". I say build a series of horribly practical, Roark-like structures that both honor the slain but meet the current market needs.

3 Cavalier. Wow. I actually love that design. Shoot. However, building on what I noted earlier, something that size is impractical. Additionally, insurance on buidlings that big would be simply impossible to get. While I admire the sentiment of sending a big "F*** you" to al-Qaeda, insurance companies do not. I would have to think long and hard about moving in to one of those buidings were one to be a residential complex, knowing the terrorists would probably make it their mission to knock them back down.
