Perhaps Otie or Dino could post a ghost render of where 1 WTC will top out with respect to the cranes?

That's not TriBeCa, as it's above Canal Street.

1 wtc is only 3 feet shorter than the Chrysler and times, that's such a little difference that by my account their are all the same height .

Talking in terms of how high they are, you can go even further and say that 1WTC still needs like 40 feet to surpass chrysler, since terrain in midtown is higher than on the wtc site.

Hi WTC.

I have used FastStone Image Viewer for years.
I use it as my pic viewer (the best I've found) and to label any shots I want to make a point with.
It has many great features, is easy to learn and use, and works on any flavour of windows.
Best of all - it's totally free.
You can find it online at faststone.org.


Ray.

Look, I used the technique of photoshop. It takes a while to do it, and yet the results are not exactly the right geometry (tapering to the top). Just to get an idea.

And I stopped on this floor (88), because it is the top floor has the same height as all down. Thereafter, the upper floors have different measures, so it becomes difficult to make a cool image.

Wow, this pic is great!
I can see the 4 WTC. I'm glad, that it is visible now, too, and doesn't hide behind the other skyscrapers
