One World Trade Center.

People were calling it the Freedom Tower before it was built, so I suspect the name will stick. One World Trade Center is more or less its address either way, but it's supposed to also be its name.

I'd only ever heard its official name.


Freedom Tower has too many connotations with freedom fries in any case.

Wrong thread I know but Noel Fielding was asking that on Jimmy Carr's quiz show last night: how often does the House of Representatives decide to rename food?

Fielding and Richard Ayoade were trying to out-strange each other. Fielding lost hands down.

I'm not American, I remember the "Freedom Tower" name from years back, that's what I used. Apoligies for an offense given or ignorance shown.
