World Trade Center
If you live outside of New York, you might not be aware of the progress of the new World Trade Center. It’s starting to progress really fast now and it looks like the outer shell is almost finished. This picture was taken on Valentine’s Day Weekend 2013. I still think it’s a horrible idea to rebuild in such a tragic spot and there is so much bad juju there, I get creeped out just from walking past the building. But you know how Americans love to show off and supersize it. That is all.

Tom Fruin’s Water Tower
If you happen to be in Brooklyn (in between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge), look up and see Tom Fruin’s really cool and colorful water tower.

In the neighborhood, you could see a pretty spectacular view of the progress of the new World Trade Center.

I like this pros and cons interactive street art list for viewers to fill out on whether or not a mosque should be built near the former World Trade Center in New York. Maybe we can’t solve the world’s problems through this display, but maybe the masses will be encouraged to write on public walls and make them a little more beautiful. Maybe we can?

Tourist Information: There is nothing to see at Ground Zero/WTC. Please go home now.
For those that have never been to New York, or those that haven’t paid a visit to our fair city since the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11/01, people from all over the world visit the gaping hole on a daily basis to take photos and while it’s pretty disrespectful and tasteless, it’s become a fact of life. Street artists have chimed in with their thoughts on this matter as you can see in the above and below images.
