These amazing photos of the 1776 foot tall new trade center have now been published, and boy are they exciting! This new tower is certainly beautiful, and will be a source of pride no doubt to people of New York City, who have lost so much 12 years ago.  See the stunning views and the enormous amount of construction this project entails!

  1. Wow… I kinda can relate, had to climb the mask of the bird farm I was on, walk out on the yard arm and paint a tv antenna… although that was only a few hundred feet… and have a fear of heights…

     
  2. hey buddy, me too. Yikes.

     
  3. For me, it’s not the height so much as an unassisted descent….

     
  4. Wow. 😮
