Proof positive that Shawn Bentley can draw semi-straight lines and call it art way better than we can.
Our lines always get too straight or too irregular.

This is “America’s Response Monument”. As you can see, it sits behind a tall fence at the World Trade Center. We aren’t certain as to why it is back there, but maybe it’s because the response that America did not do the best things after being attacked on 9/11? Just maybe…
Anyway, the monument’s base has the MOST wordy piece of information that we’ve ever seen on a monument.
It’s like someone asked “How do we fit ten plus years of savage brutality onto a stone ten foot wide and five feet high?” And then got the answer of “Very tiny letters. Lots of them. But we just won’t mention savage brutality.”
It’s been approximately two and a half months since we showcased One World Trade, aka the Freedom Tower. A lot has happened since we last visited.
The base of the southern side is being glassed and the spire is no longer sitting on the north side of the construction site.
In fact, it is scheduled to be topped off today.
The construction elevator that once hung on the outside of the western side of the building has been completely dismantled and the newly installed glass gives the building a Washington Monument sort of old/new construction look to it. Hopefully this will fade and blend in over time.
Meanwhile the eastern construction elevator still remains tall.
The building is an epic beast in size.
