Lower Manhattan, as seen from my bedroom window. One World Trade Center (left) is going up at a rate of one story per week and was 92 stories tall on February 17th, one week ago. That puts it at 93 stories, 12 shy of its final height (not to mention the spire). This thing is awesomely massive.
When my wife and I moved into our cobble hill apartment, we could see just the tops of Manhattan’s buildings. Now, with the Gehry building and 1WTC coming into its own, we have a phenomenal view.
