WTC VIEW. Looking down my street, the twin towers stood almost directly at the end of it roughly 20 blocks away...a landmark that I still miss. The original towers were slightly to the left in this picture, the north tower rising behind WTC 7 (the tallest building in the background) and the South tower rising over the building to the left of that with the water towers on top.
Yet recently, I noticed that looking down my street, the new One World Trade Center (formerly the Freedom Tower) is now visible. You can see it in this photo, a small crane poking out the top of what is now roughly the 40th floor. Eventually the building will have 105 floors with a building height matching the original WTC 1 and a massive 400-foot tower on top to reach it's symbolic height of 1,776 feet. Completion is scheduled in April '13.
