Entries in NYC Skyline (3)
On my Dec 21th 2011 post, I showed a similar image of the Manhattan skyline and this 5th Ave corner. This one has 2 notable updates. One is the red roof on that building across the street. The site of the old Off Track Betting is now becoming a Key Food supermarket. The other change is harder to see. In the distance, the new WTC tower in the center of the city skyline is several floors taller. Right now it's almost the same height as the Empire State. But it's still growing.
A view of the Manhattan skyline from a Park Slope apt. That's the corner of 12th St & 5th Ave down there. In the center of the image, in the distance, the new World Trade Center tower under construction, with it's two huge cranes on the top. It's going up fast.
