So I just wanted to bring this concept to the table. Where do you think the World Trade Center was, and where will the Freedom Tower be in Liberty City.

Here is my thought on it.
- It once was where Yusif Amir is doing development.
- Yusif Amir said in TBoGT that he was going to build the tallest building in the city. In real life the Freedom Tower is now the tallest building in New York. So I think that if we were to see LC in the present, Yusif's site would be almost done, and the buildings would look like the new World Trade Center plaza.
-In 2008, construction on the new World Trade Center looked about as far as Yusif's development.
-Even though that isn't exactly the location of the WTC in real NYC, it can make sense that the towers could of been there as several other NYC landmark's LC counterparts are not 100% in their real location.
-"Tragic events a few years ago" was mentioned on the radio in GTA IV.

Obviously Rockstar didn't want to risk having the site being more closer to the real ground zero because they didn't want to offend anyone. But do you guys think about this concept.

There has never existed a World Trade Center in Liberty City.

I wonder if Yusif's tower he had plans for looks like the Freedom Tower. He said he wanted it to be the tallest building in the city.

That's an interesting concept. I can just imagine it finished and towering over Algonquin. As you say, though, it was never meant to be.

Didn't Yusuf have some kind of model of Liberty City and his projects or something so?

I looked at that. It didn't have the building there. It looked like the 2008 Algonquin.

That's what i thought too. Of course they needed to be sensitive about the whole situation so those thigs were never explained.

Go to the bottom of Algonquin and you will see it. There's a construction site there.

Not true. On the radio you seldom hear people referencing attacks on the city years ago. There likely was a WTC right where the construction site now stands. You can say that it wouldn't have been right to place them there but everything is mixed around in Liberty City compared to NY already.
