No the picture is correct....it is just a foreshortened view using a long lens taken from New Jersey closer to the Kill Van Kull with the new WTC render image superimposed...really ! I sometimes see mirror image NY pics in the Old NY threads but if you study this one everything is in the right spot relative to everything else.....See the Liberty Torch is just left of the Chrysler Spire......just make a straight line on a map...easy!.

Use the zoom feature on your browser for big pics, or small ones for that matter.
I think we are actually the last generations of "kids" that know and care about this..Those younger kids don't remember that day because they were too young and for most of them this is just something that happened in recent history...Except those who lost someone that day..They will always remeber that day..

Looks like from helicopter?

Talkin' about glass..

One World Trade Center
New York, New York
Base & Curtain Wall

http://www.som.com/content.cfm/one_world_trade_center

The tower rises from a podium wall base whose square plan – 200 feet by 200 feet – is the same size as the footprints of the original Twin Towers. The podium wall base is 185 feet tall and consists of laminated prismatic glass and welded aluminum screens. It is clad in more than 2000 pieces of prismatic glass; each measures 4 feet by 13 feet 4 inches with varying prismatic profiles. The design utilizes the optical properties of prismatic glass to reflect, refract and transmit light in various spectrums to create a dynamic, shimmering glass surface that drapes the tower’s base. The prismatic glass was developed over the course of four years in conjunction with some of the world’s top glass manufacturers, who worked with the architects to achieve the desired visual qualities and to produce the innovative prismatic glass.

For the curtain wall, architects worked with industry experts to develop glass of a new monumental scale that is capable of withstanding the wind pressure of a super-tall building as well as stringent security requirements. The 5’ by 13’4” insulated glass panels span the full 13’-4” floor-to-floor height with no intermediate mullion – a first in skyscraper construction. These glass panels allow for maximum daylighting and impart monumental scale to the project. The eight corners of the building are clad with stainless steel panels, with each panel spanning the full height of a floor.

i know this is kinda off topic but the new goldman sachs seems like it should be part of the world trade center, it is really good quality, very close by and it sorta matches the wtc style. btw i really like that last nightish evening pic, looks great

That picture tells me that Goldman-Sachs is making so much money that they can afford to leave almost EVERY LIGHT IN THE HOUSE on.

So, ummm, do existing supertalls not use glass, or do they not have wind pressure ?

Pretty sure that is completely wrong also, with plenty of photographic evidence on this site...
