Perhaps we should wait a few years, until this is complete before we make that judgement.

Wow, so much progress. I remember being there in 2008 and it was just a big hole. I can't wait until this whole project is finished. It will be one of the most amazing complexes in the world, truly a perfect fit for the financial center of the world.

Its just a massive scale. Hell, you can even see Newark from that view. I think it looks great.

What was surprising to me was Jersey City's skyline...that appears pretty impressive. The last time I was in NYC, the twins were still standing, so it's been a few years.

Agreed, had no idea the Jersey City skyline had such a presence, and it keeps growing. BTW, Love the Beekman Place Tower, looks gorgeous in that shot
