Nice. I actually flew into LGA last night. Don't have a picture from that but I do have one when I flew out on Friday. This is Manhattan from North-South at ~7,000ft. If you zoom in all the way you can sort of make out 1WTC.

Also I hate to post an old picture but I just found this on my phone. This is taken from the middle of the Hudson about a month ago. I just managed to capture that Blackhawk, but simultaneously cut out 4WTC.

Lol! I didn't know you guys would be so interested in a photo where you can barely see 1WTC!
And ya this is the the highest resolution you can go... I'm glad I was even able to see anything, since I was on a small plane that was shaking a lot before landing! And I was zoomed in with my point and shoot!
I'll be leaving ny tonight

Btw, here is my NYC construction roof diagram. It's incomplete because I dunno how tall 157 is. Also, it should be noted that the height of 4WTC again isn't 100% precise. If anybody has info about the heights of 157 or 4WTC, please lemme know

[IMG]http://i51.************/efm77k.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = 319 meters or 1047 feet out of 418 meters or 1371 feet
4WTC = Approximately 208 meters or 682 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet

(Note: I used the 418 meter figure for 1WTC when measured from the lowest above ground entrance and I used the 298 meter figure for 4WTC.)

I think it's time again for a PZ cam update. I see that new steel columns are now standing at least on half of the perimeter

I think it will happen far earlier than at xmas. We're already now at 319 meters and one height jump covers approximately 8 meters. That's 4 jumps left, which from what I know requires approximately 8 weeks

That's true, but I think those will be only a problem in winter months so in my opinion October and November should be kinda smooth
