New WTC Tower

Well people are bashing the new design for the freedom tower at the World Trade Center.
Great skyscrapers, especially in this city of party-hat towers, meet the sky and the ground with unforgettable aesthetic flourish. But the redesigned Freedom Tower at ground zero, which likely will be the nation's tallest skyscraper and surely will be its most heavily fortified, falls short of the towering standard set by the exuberant Chrysler Building and its more dignified skyline partner, the Empire State Building.
I see this as a good sign. The same people were saying the same thing about the original twin towers.
