That's a pretty cool/rare angle. It looks like it could have been taken just down the street from the WTC.

...slightly off topic, but what is that stop-sign shaped object with the 2 US flags on top?

Correct me if i'm wrong, but from what I understand, the floor area of each floor gradually diminishes towards the top. At first glance, I thought each floor would have similar areas.

My train of thought is in connection with the photo from the Dutch newspaper, showing the floor plate. The shape of each floor will be slightly different as the angular steel draws closer together until it meets in the middle. The floors at the top will form a square again, only rotated 45° and be roughly half the area of the bottom ones... It's a fascinating design!

It looks really good at night. Easy to read from most of Manhattan.

I think so. Nice to see a floor from above.

That's definitely taken from the Barclay Vesey building.

There about to spruce it up. When they complete the Hudson River walkway , its engraved into Jersey City history. It used to rest 15 blocks north but they moved it when they demolished the Colgate factory. My friend who worked in the old WTC said he would glance over to get the time for the clock.

I can't believe how much it has grown since I went there a few months ago. I wonder how high it will be for the 10 year anniversarry of 9/11 next Sept. Not that it really matters, but it would be pretty cool to see it up there
