If you have really strong binaculars hahahaha.

That is ever the problem that Jersey have relative to Brookly - it is too far away across the wide Hudson rather than simply being across the narrow east river.

I wonder when cladding will pass 7 WTC. When it does, it will really stand out I bet.

Freedom Tower rises from ground zero

Quote:
...A 10-minute ascent -- for lack of a better word -- from the street level leads to the building's open-air 70th floor.
There are no elevators, at least not the kind most people are used to.
No, there's what's known as "the hoist," a cage-like lift plastered with bumper stickers from faraway places like Key West, Fla., complete with a boom box playing Shakira's "Hips Don't Lie."
"The key is don't look outside and don't look down," Frank Crecco, 58, a plumber from Long Island, advises before the harrowing ride.
One ride on the local and one ride on the express version of the hoist, which has a weight limit of 7,700 pounds, transports construction workers to vertigo-inducing heights.
...

A cameraman documents the footprints of the World Trade Center towers from the 39th floor of the Freedom Tower, also known as One World Trade Center, New York City, Thursday, Aug. 11, 2011, under construction a month before the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

Well there is a point at the very north end where there is an excellent view, and the fact that it's a little farther away makes the city look even more epic

Awesome updates! The different angles makes me appreciate how badass the whole complex is going to look once complete... Even just when 1WTC tops out! AMAZING!

Without the sarcastic remarks.

It's alright Kevin. Your pics are much appreciated here, along with Kitty and Nexis. I love when people share their days at the site with us.

Again, thanks to Otie for always posting as well.

It's all good kingsc; I've been burned with people just copying my work and calling it their own. I would prefer not have to ask people to not copy my shots but I'll be damned if someone makes a buck off my skills...

I'll be down at the WTC tomorrow, gonna do some shopping at Century 21. I haven't seen the building in person since April 2010 when it was just the base and the first office floor, so it'll definitely be awesome to see how much it's grown up close! I'll snap a couple of shots too, but it's with my lousy phone camera (I had even taken a couple of pics on Thursday from a distance, but my phone camera settings were screwed up and the pictures were all tiny, now I fixed the settings).
