Damn i'm confusing myself now,, hope u can understand what i'm trying to say. The black bldg looks like it was where 4wtc is now.
The new pic has the farthest left part covered up by ESB. Some of the buildings in the 2001 pic are simply hiding behind it. See if that would explain it.

That's one Liberty Plaza, like L.A.F.2 said, the camera's positioning doesn't have it as aligned up as the 2001 pic so it is obscured behind the Empire State Building

Interestingly the skyline of Manhattan also mirrors the natural geology of the bedrock just under the surface of the island. The bedrock, which serves as a strong solid "foundation" for the skyscrapers, rises to near the surface in the lower part of Manhattan around Wall Street, City Hall and the WTC site and then submerges for a few miles to resurface in the midtown area around the ESB, Chrysler, Rockefeller, Citibank, etc.

But Ghostface is correct: the largely historic residential neighborhoods of Soho, Chinatown, Little Italy, Lower East Side, and Greenwich Village are protected in order to preserve the charm and character of those areas.

Most cities have just one business district ... Manhattan has two: "downtown" and "midtown."

No, you misunderstood him. Bozen is one of the most enthusiastic fans of the World Trade Center. Although it did come out a bit awkwardly, his intentions were good.

That's actually a myth.

Onewtclover, please don't post that render again... If I see it again my head will explode because the proportions are all off. Post something new and not played out!

This is a good sign that maybe they will light the spire/beacon after all.

RIP to all those killed on 9/11.

Wish you all a safe and blessed day tomorrow.

I'll be down at Brooklyn bridge park to take crappy photos with my iPod.

I wish they would put an actual camera around the top of the mast so we could have a world class view of the entire city
