It really pairs off nicely with Woolworth on the skyline. They make a very good-looking couple.

why has no one ever gotten a shot from this angle? its such a perfect way for non new yorkers like me to see the building in relationship to the world trade center and Manhattan in general.

It's nice to see a 850+ footer creep up the height of the skyline. The ~750 foot heights of Goldman Sachs Tower and 7WTC kinda flatlined lower Manhattan's skyline.

Throw in 1-4WTC and 30 Park Place and you get a growing skyline. Can't wait to see an aerial shot like that again in five years.
