Goldman Sachs is that tallest building down there. And 1WTC still shorter then tower 7.

As long as Carlos keeps bringing us those photos, he can brag about that great terrace view of his all he wants.

That's also a great angle to see when it passes 7WTC in height.

Great Photoshop, although, don't forget to give credit to the photographer: Lofter1.

Apologies, credit where due for the photo. Thanks.

Here is a before and after photo, much clearer than my previous post.

It's getting exciting... I can't wait to see what the cladding on the base will look like once they start putting it up.

I think most folks will like the base glass. It is my hope that they start it's installation from the top down so we will see it sooner rather than later.

Nice PS Lawrence7!

That is a great shot. What, 80 years of skyscrapers in NYC in one photo.

If I am not mistaken, when T1 tops out, it's top would not be visable in a photo taken at the same angle this time next year. ( I am not counting the spire.)
