Damn!! im going to have to change my wallpaper now too!! much better than the space background I have now!

impressive shots.. im surprised these pics arent all over the skyscraper pages as well. Ive never been to new york. That pic of the ESB made me realize that the ESB isnt as big as I once thought. it sure looks tall in the pic, but after looking at the deck, I really thought the building was wider.. well at the top at least (because the bottom has a huge base already)

The twins look surreal in that pic; just incredible!!

Hey!! I found a pic of the WTC.. a very rare shot with the sun setting, just between the towers!! I was fixing a customer's Dell desktop (I own my computer business, Network Services) when I ran into this incredible shot of the WTC pasted on my client's Win98 Desktop! I HAD to copy it..... this apparently was a "personal" pic so there is a good chance that this same pic wont be around elsewhere...

here is a 4th Amazing shot!!



This one is also very suitable for Desktop Wallpaper..

I've seen that one many times. In fact, I think a pro-Twin Tower rebuilding site has it on their front page.
