A wonderful song on the top of one of my favorite towers before our current predicament was even a fever dream.
Also happens to be the best song ever full stop. Well, for me.
With this, my opinion is that 1, 2, 3, and 4 WTC Don't replace the twins. The memorial replaces the twins. These are office towers for business, and the memorial is to reflect on those terrible events of over 11 years ago.
Sure, the mast is ugly. But then again, some of the ugliness is just things like temporary platforms on the mast, that will be gone. Sure, it's a big hulk of steel on a pretty featureless building, but it's something. I quite like the way the tower fits in to the skyline. Despite being very 'bland' in its design, it somehow suits the area. A simple, gleaming structure. I'm happy with it.
