    btw, why is the new tower going to be shorter than the twin towers? I just heard that today.
    No.
    The new tower is to be 1776ft tall (which is slightly taller than the Twin Towers).

    They said it's to be 1776ft to commemorate the year 1776... for obvious reasons.

    Right now, the new one is only 36 stories tall.
    The old towers were 110.

    It's embarrassing to me, as a native New Yorker, that the rebuilding is taking so long. I lost people close to me there that day, but the dragged-on process and bickering is making it feel like even more of a defeat.
