Great idea!!! I am pretty sure that they will consider it. It will help to eased the congestion. It is right choice. I bet they will take on Skyway instead of going on subway.

Just a stupid question, but...

Now that 1WTC will be soon complete and has a lot of space on its rooftop to install antennas and communication gears,... is it possible that they remove the antenna on the top of the Empire State Building?

The antenna on the ESB is really ugly... and it was not supposed to be there, according to the initial plans. And it feels like half of the ESB is a big antenna (because of the upper part that is thinner than the lower part).

The ESB makes from that antenna. It wouldn't make sense from a business perspective.

NO. Some stations will use it as a backup, and some stations may not move at all. It hasn't been decided yet who, if any, will move back to the WTC site.

So is this tower going to get a sign already? I'm eager to see what it's going to look like...

Haven't seen one yet. Hopefully it will be traditional, and not something like the logo. Safw bet is on traditional.
