Can we seriously stop with the off-topic now?

Anywho, I think the new row of glass is either floor 88 or 89

To all the victims of 9/11 my god rest there souls,and as much as i would love for the twins to still be here, in my opinion the twins where a bland and cold design,i grantee you if such a building like the twins where built today the majority of people would not like the design,for all those who don't think so tell me why? is their so much hate for 432 park ave,and it is just not because 432 is super skinny its also because of 432 similar design as the twins.

This can't be real can it? Looks so fake with the boats,, looks like a Godzilla movie from the 70's ,, seriously is that real?

It is real. It's a technique used by photographers called Tilt-Shift.

Look at the links below for more tilt-shift photography of the big apple.

Yesterday I discovered that One World Trade Center can be seen from El Toro at Six Flags Great Adventure, clear as day. I was scanning the horizon hopefully but then it just hit me in the distance....you can see about 500-600 feet of it but I didn't see any other buildings. It's exactly 45 miles

Does anyone have a rough guess as to when the glass will hit the parapet?

I'd say December, but that is a very rough guess
