I love this kind of photos. NY pics are often from too far away and that takes away the sense of scale. But in photos like this, you really apreciate the sheer mass, size and height of all towers. Especially in Downtown, where 1WTC dominates so much you dont have and idea of how tall its neighbours really are. 3 WTC is just massive!! and it'll grow a lot more

this is an amazing capture - you can compare Tower 3's core vs Tower 1's core.

Hopefully we'll see this tower topped out by July! Glad to see this one passing 4 WTC and becoming a SUPERTALL!

Would it be possible to walk on a tightrope between the lower shoulder of 3WTC and the setback of 4WTC? I'm not sure how their elevations compare.

30 Park Place looks very commanding in those last few skyline photographs. Some night lighting on the crown would heighten that effect.
