The first picture that Otie posted... does anyone know what building that picture was taken on the roof of? I've been wondering this for years since I always see pictures from this location and elevation looking south. Then yesterday Crocodile Dundee was on TV and there's a scene on that building's roof with the woman photographing Dundee with that exact view behind him (only the Twin Towers are still standing behind him).

Must be a pretty tall building but nothing comes to mind.

Beautiful picture, i would do anything to get to New York to see it, the symbolism of the Big Aplle is growing back into place.

Webcams go down all the time. Earthcam was down for a period of almost 3 months back in 2008. Don't panic.
