Actually, that picture IS from Lady Liberty. The little flag is on Ellis Island. Great photo by the way!

I seriously doubt that picture is from inside the statue of liberty - it is too high up. Most likely taken from a helicopter circling it

Have you ever seen Earthcam's webcam atop the Statue of Liberty's torch? http://www.earthcam.com/usa/newyork/...cam=liberty_hd It looks to me like it is the exact same angle..

yeah, but you can't actually go into the torch. In fact, right now you can't even get to the crown. So unless this was taken by some NPS person or it is a web cam screen shot it is likely from an aircraft of some sort.

1 WTC curtainwall reflecting sunrise

Took this last week from Broadway on the morning of the Giants Parade:

the reflection/ color diffraction off the corner strip was fantastic!

There's something screwy about it then. Looks to me it was taken at a height right around the roof of GS.

Spot on.


Entertaining debate about it though.



btw... Glad nobody was hurt and work won't be significantly delayed by the recent mishap. Amazing how much worksite safety has improved over the years.

The safety regs have certainly saved a lot of lives, though at the cost of longer construction times and added cost. But in the end its worth it. In the book Men of Steel, it stated 17 people died during the construction of the original WTC. So far two people died building 7WTC and 2 firefighters in the Deutsche Bank Building fire/demolition.

As requested by Kanto, these are oldies, so much learned about post-production since then... The mechanical louver walls aren't shown on second render in order to give an idea of how tall parapet is above roof slab.

^ Those are microwave dishes. Funny fact: the dishes won't be perfectly aligned with the Communications platform, most of them will be pointing either north, west or southeast and there might be empty spaces on some sections.
