Those are great pictures, Otie! I especially like the second one.

And Dino, that one is really beautiful. I love how it is so massive.

I found a diagram last night...

Here is my new NYC construction roof diagram now with 157 as well. It should be noted that the height of 4WTC and of 157 isn't 100% precise. If anybody has precise info about the heights of 157 or of 4WTC, please lemme know

[IMG]http://i55.************/2pqpduc.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
157 = Approximately 125 meters or 410 feet out of 306 meters or 1005 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 you're pretty close Kanto, nice work. Well you definitely have Tower 1. Tower 4 is probably close to where you said it is and for for 157 I think it's almost 400 feet now. New York City is getting better everyday these Towers grow.

Could you believe I didn't know that Chrysler building was going to be the second tallest building in NYC.

It used to be until Bank of America has beaten it. Recently 1WTC has beaten it too so it is now the 4th tallest in NYC. Once 157 and 4WTC will be completed it'll be the 6th tallest as my diagram shows

The height of the North Tower!

Where do I go to find construction photos? A Google search for "Freedom Tower construction" turned out to be unfruitful... I'm not sure how to navigate around Flickr; but even recent Flickr results did not appear in the query.

Not sure if this was posted already, or if it was from Flickr (URL is completely different...) but here goes...

Well I would start by searching for pictures related to the building's name, "1 WTC" as opposed to an old name no longer associated.

I would say it is "associated" in one sense, considering many articles and commentators still refer to it as such. I will try to search using that term, though. Thank you.
