Where I live in the Bahamas, the tallest thing on the island is an abandoned 18 story building. It's 18 stories and it's dominating the skyline. Yet people complain about 4WTC being too small...

It isn't comparable in size yet. BOA is still 176 feet taller, if you don't count the spire.

I meant final height, not current height

And you weren't the one whom ask the question, to which I'm answering. I quoted you because you answer before me. The thing about BOA is, it isn't boxed in by 700 footers like 4WTC. So when BOA was 700 foot it looked incredibly tall.

BoA isn't boxed in? That building is nearly invisible, that's how it's boxed in, LOL

Only one of those buildings are over 700 feet. How tall would BOA look with 1WTC up its back. And how the hell is BOA almost invisible? It's the tallest, brightest thing in that picture.

But if you want to compare, Condé Nast across the street is 809 feet.

On that pic it is visible cause the camera is focused only on a small part of the skyline. Here it is nearly invisible:

Driving up the west side highway it's pretty hard to separate it from the rest of midtown.

I've never had a problem, seeing it from the west side highway.

I made a new diagram to show yesterday's jump

Roof height used below!

[IMG]http://i42.************/24ew2ys.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = 362 meters or 1189 feet out of 418 meters or 1371 feet
4WTC = Approximately 244 meters or 801 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet
157 = 199 meters or 654 feet out of 306 meters or 1005 feet

(Note: I used the 418 meter figure for 1WTC when measured from the lowest above ground entrance and I used the 298 meter figure for 4WTC.)
