What's more, 80 South, when that starts rising, won't block anything in that view...maybe except that new shard tower by ESB. The other downtowners in the pipeline are gonna look great, too.
And the Big Three rising around CP will be visible (*maybe* Nordstrom might have a hard time peeking). As will 1V.
Fun times ahead......

NYC's energetic powerhouse symbolism
of 3 WTC has been Defanged . .
the spire-less tower is sort of a nice, tall, forgettable building . .
NYC's great downtown landmark center . .
the WTC, makes NYC look sorta big . .
but not especially like the Greatest city that it once was . .

The new WTC is turning into such a snoozefest.

This is so sad, but it's not complete yet! So hopefully when 2WTC comes it will finally look and feel complete.

All I see hear in your sorrowful poem is nostalgia and crying over nothing... The new complex is far nicer than the old windswept plaza and grey monolithic towers of the old. It still has its powerful appearance.

I understand it's disappointing that the spires atop this tower are no longer... but this is still the greatest city in the USA (by a long shot) and it firmly stands shoulder to shoulder with Tokyo, London and Paris... and beats them at their game in many categories.

If you've been in NYC lately, you'd see the city is literally covered with tower cranes. It already has remarkable landmark towers and will soon add another half-dozen to its ranks.

By the way, the WTC is very practical. NYC is a practical, hard-working, surprisingly sustainable city that produces output. It isn't a long-term practical joke waiting to disappoint everyone by building uselessly tall towers in the desert. This is a city that gets stuff done.... with.... or without a few spires on one random building.

Yes, I'm sorry Value Engineering exists, but it keeps NYC competitive and it keeps it REAL. NYC has a future because it's unfortunately practical.
