It really goes well with the skyline. This building should give us a good idea of 4WTC since they are exactly the same height.

The Verzion Building, formally known as the Bell Atlantic Tower, I was in that building on the 12th floor. I have a short video if anyone wants to see it.

(1) GOOD LORD!!!!!!!! The CC is a monsta!!! And I didn't realize that it was taller than the Transamerica Pyramid, (San Francisco) doesn't look like it but it is by 122ft. (2) Yeah, it's on my Youtube account. I'm thinkin about goin downtown this weekend and takin some pics/vids of the CC and skyline. If I do go I'll be sure to post it on youtube. For future reference, any video I have of the CC/Skyline/or anything related to that will be posted on my account.

Taken today by me in South Philly. Now the sun is out : I just noticed how the skyline is too blue from this angle. We need color!

Yeah your right. Personally I think we need more towers, (above the 1,000ft mark), the skyline looks empty. Not to many, just some good sizeable ones. The thing I love about Philly is that nature and the city are balanced. It's not a concrete jungle. Your not so overwhelmed by the industrial aspect of it.

Not bad, I like how it fits in with the rest of the skyline, not a bad building.
