The financial district is amazing.

I can't see very well from my house, but up the road is a spectacular Longview. On my way to work I usually stop and just imagine The finished project.

Please don't call them "Larry's buildings." Grr.

I love the Freedom Tower. It is rising so quickly; I hope they do something with that base, though...

Okay folks, here is our current diagram. Right now, with 285 meters 1WTC is the third tallest building in NY, just 3 meters taller than the Chrysler Building and just 3 meters shorter than the Bank of America:
