New York’s New Tallest Building

Today in NYC, One World Trade Center became the tallest building in town. Tonight, the building is being illuminated in the colors of the Port Authority which are blue and white to mark this milestone. 

As someone who witnessed the second plane hit on 9/11, and preceded to watch the towers collapse on a roof top with architects who had worked on the buildings, I am delighted by this news.

This is the photo I took from the roof top on 23rd &  6th Ave.

I want to congratulate the all the hard working people involved, especially all the trades on site. They often do not get the recognition due to them, especially on a complex project like this one.

For all those that are interested, this is how One World Trade Center relates to the other buildings around the world and the twin towers.
