I know this is old news, but they finally chose a building plan to construct in the area where the original World Trade Center once stood.

Aspect of the new building which most amazed me:
"A ¡°wedge of light¡± created by precise positioning of the future buildings that are to surround Ground Zero, so that every year on Sept. 11 a shaft of unshadowed sunlight will fall onto a public square from 8:46 a.m. ET (when the first plane crashed into the North Tower) to 10:28 a.m. ET (when it collapsed, after South Tower went down.)"

Wow, Daniel Libeskind is definitely a genius. I can't even read a sundial. I hope to visit New York by the time this 1,776 ft tall dream becomes a reality.
