Check Out The Incredible Views From One World Trade Center

Friday, April 13, 2012


If you hadn’t heard already, One World Trade Center (the building formerly known as the Freedom Tower) just reached 100 stories high and is well on its way to becoming the tallest building in North America. In honor of the milestone, MSNBC sent a photographer up to the 69th floor to see what the views are like 2/3 of the way, and they are already stupendous.

Above is a snapshot of the view looking north over Manhattan with the Empire State Building in the distance. On their site you can utilize their interactive photo-thingy (to use technical terms) to scan the view from Brooklyn (east) to New Jersey (west). For more pictures, including what the new 9/11 Memorial looks like from hundreds of feet in the air, click though to the site.
