You have no idea what you're talking about. Those hills are huge. They're like little mountains. I drive through there regularly.

It is without a doubt White Plains. NR is several miles to the east and is not visible from that perspective, which looks due north.

The building is looking savage.
Is any of the buildings on the site going to be residential.

I highly doubt Cantor Fitzgerald would ever go back since so many of their employees died on 911 including my friend John "Pepe" Salerno! RIP Bud!

:-(

Yeah, I would think Cantor would find it virtually impossible to ever get any of their people to work at the WTC ever again... besides that, my understanding is that they relocated to midtown or elsewhere years ago in the post-9/11 months when they got their NYC office back up and running...

Sorry to hear about your friend! RIP

But I don't see Cantor Fitzgerald going back, they lost over 600 people and about 66% of their whole staff! Such a traumatic experience, couldn't see them returning to ground zero.

Once this building is finished, many are going to admire it.
