Then this building would have been a total beauty.

They said I wouldn't dominate,
They said I wouldn't make an impact...
Well, they were wrong.

This tower picks up sunlight from all directions (well, except north...). This hazy morning it was the only one shining in Manhattan:

I just got back from my first ever trip to the US, which included a week in New York. It's an incredible city! And seeing the tower in person for the first time after all these years following it's progress was great.

Here's a few photos I took from a couple of different angles around the city, nothing special (some of the photos we get on here are incredible ), but they're pretty recent.
