It looks like it was taken from the roof of the Barclay Vesey (Verizon) building. Number 7 is too far east for that angle.

Yeah sure looks impressive but we will have to wait a while yet ! The Millennium Hilton looks to come out best to retain some view toward the Hudson. I know the original towers footprints are sacred and will be memorials but the new towers will replace what was low rise before blocking what were great views including the twin towers........
PS.........I didn't know that was the Colgate clock over in New Jersey ? but I remember sitting at the Husdon River down by the WFC on a warm September evening looking at this clock and some fireworks.......Luxury boats in the small marina beside the Wintergarden.....and an empty sky where the WTC used to be....a weird feeling but as a traveller soaked up the experience. New York will be the better as it comes to completion.

Looks like the 34th floor is decked out. I bet they'll start raising the core by Friday.
