I love NY. I know this is slightly O/T, but all the emerging skyscrapers in NYC remind me of trees fighting for light in the canopy. Those that can reach sunlight survive, whilst those that can't will simply shrivel up in the undergrowth and are doomed to be replaced by a taller building. Probably a strange analogy, but I find it rather fitting for modern day NY. Can't wait to visit this bad-boy in May! Will be great to see how much it's risen.

When 1WTC finally passes 7WTC will there be a celebration lol? I'm guessing when it finally passes the Empire State Building as the tallest that would be a special moment.

This is one of the better vantage points from Brooklyn to see 1WTC and later 2WTC rise. You dont have that bloody Beekman tower obscuring the view. Like you do from under the Brooklyn Bridge on its northern side.

I am so sick of waiting for this to surpass WTC7, why they don't get on with it!

Great one Otie, i love what you've done with the river, it looks fantastic-so clear and bright on the skyscrapers too.

Well I was at jury duty at the court house, so I won't be taking anymore pics from there anytime soon.

That wasn't even the best view I got a pic of all of mid town from the samespot. And all the tallest building in the city in it. Too bad I didn't have a real camera.

Nope, that video shows the installation of the corner nodes of floors 59-60. If I'm not wrong...

LowerManhattan.info says that concrete is being poured above floor 50.

Your intuition was right, that video is at least one week old, it's easy to guess that those are the corner nodes of floors 59 & 60, the next corner beams that will surpass 7WTC are going to be wider. You can also see that because of perspective, 1WTC looks higher than 7WTC with those corner nodes being installed, it's an ilusion.
Thanks for the photos.
