That's a great looking building in the foreground.

Edit. Just looking through Google Streetview... I now know where to buy a Maserati in Manhattan. LOL.

a bit overexposed but a great shot with so many architectural styles.
I guess that's 30 Park Place in the background?

I don't think it's taller than 7 WTC yet, it just looks like that from that angle.

It is now taller than the Woolworth building which is about 40 feet taller than WTC 7.

I tried to estimate the building's height by comparing it to the buildings close to it in the pics you folks posted and I came up with a height of 195 meters or 640 feet. If any of you have more accurate info please let me know and I'll correct my diagram
