This is nowhere near the quality of most of the other pics here, but I managed to snap this aerial photo with my smartphone last month as I was landing at JFK.

1WTC and the two memorial fountains are right around the middle of the picture.

Human resources. I hope he's right, but we were wrong many other times. This could just be one lighting test.

By the way, had to post this for my 400th post, using my newly acquired skill: posting images from google images!

By the way, my 200th like is coming soon! 196 and counting!

I remember this post from a long time ago, when someone suggested that the WTC be cladded black. Someone made this to criticize the thought, but many people actually liked it!

It's small, I don't know why.

Do we have a comparison photo taken from the same angle with the twin towers?

The first from these two pics is by far the best 1WTC pic I ever saw. There are no words in our language to describe how beautiful and mystical it is

Yes I saw last night, the setback and roof had the white strip LED lights on. By the way this base looks absolutely stunning at night even without it being illuminated yet...I don't understand why some people hate on this tower sometimes in person it truly is a gorgeous building from the base to the spire. Pictures really do no justice what so ever to this building.

Good timing Just came back home and uploaded my photos! The tour was truly amazing, it was beyond my expectations! There was some people from PANYJ with us, as well press. They showed us lobby, then we went up to skylobby on 64th floor, 90th floor (including the outside platform), 104 floor, the roof, spire and again the outside platform on 104 floor.

Here we go:

When we got in the site close to PATH station, I saw this perfect reflection on 7WTC tower....It really does look like we had Twins again! :




The entrance to the lobby on SE side:



The lobby, there is still a lot to be done and a lot of equipment around. I was feeling like in a huge bunker.





Elevator from lobby to 64th floor, the ride was fast and very smooth (it was a permanent elevator).




View from skylobby on 64th floor:





A staricase, not that narrow as in old towers, ~6 feet wide for one run.




to be continued....

View onto 9/11 Memorial from 64th floor:



4WTC



90th floor, actually I find all floors very spacious, it doesn't looks like there is much space inside judging from outside, but it is



Outside on a platform: (90th floor)







This is going to be an observation deck here:



I couldn't believe they took us to the roof!! The spire is amazing!
