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
1 57 = 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.)

Nice view from across the water. Hopefully with all 4 towers in the picture in a couple of years.

Nah, I think that the ESB is still a bit taller...

As for where the pic is taken from, I couldn't tell, I'm not from New York.

Despite the incorrect rubbish that some people spew on these forums, the Bank of America Tower is still a good 50 meters taller.
