Does anybody know when they will re-air that Discovery Channel special about the new WTC? I missed it!

heyy it is a continuing miniseries...the next three episodes air sept 1st, at 8pm on discovery. I'm sure, however if you check your guide they will repeat this weeks episodes at night, at least thats what I've been seeing. good luck finding it! (keep in mind, the program is three segments or hours long and they are commercial free, so have time to spare)

Extremely nice view from that spot. It will be awesome when the whole complex is done.

BTW, what's the tall building on the far left (1st from the left side of the picture)?

That's Beekman Place by Gehry.

I agree, the view from Jersey City is the best around. However, that view is from Hoboken.

And if you love this aspect of LM, you're gonna love the new WTC cause unlike the old WTC, the new WTC is built in a rising mountain style that works perfectly with it's surroundings (rising spiral effect of the towers)

If you take a quick look from far away the city does look like a big blue mountain.
