That's a great looking building in the foreground.

Edit. Just looking through Google Streetview... I now know where to buy a Maserati in Manhattan. LOL.

a bit overexposed but a great shot with so many architectural styles.
I guess that's 30 Park Place in the background?

I don't think it's taller than 7 WTC yet, it just looks like that from that angle.

It is now taller than the Woolworth building which is about 40 feet taller than WTC 7.

are you confusing it with 30 Park Place? 56 Leonard still has a bit to grow before its ~790'

I tried to estimate the building's height by comparing it to the buildings close to it in the pics you folks posted and I came up with a height of 195 meters or 640 feet. If any of you have more accurate info please let me know and I'll correct my diagram
