The Tallest building in NYC

Talking with @pappillioncharity in the comments of a post where I mentioned the tallest buildings in NYC, and he said it would be cool to see shots of the tallest buildings in NYC, and this will be the first post in this series, starting with One World Trade Center

One World Trade Centre at 1,776 Feet is the tallest building NYC and for that matter in the Western Hemisphere and the sixth tallest building in the world

The Lines on the left of the first photo are part of one of the Wings of the Occulus Building and transportation hub which can be seen in the next shot

Although seeing Tower one standing tall and proud is impressive to see one cannot help but think of the horrible attack on 911, and thats why I went with a more somber Mono edit for this next shot.
My thoughts go out to all those who lost family and friends on that day.

One thing I found heading around the tallest buildings in NYC well not found was reminded how hard it can be to get clear shots of some of the buildings without other buildings in the way, but when the building is the Occulus as in the next shot I don't mind it so much.
infact I do quite like this shot on Tower one with the Wing of the Occulus in the foreground

And a last shot for this post of Tower one, you can see some colorful art in the foreground, part of quite a bit of art in this area but that will be for another post

It seems incredible to me that after 18 years very few persons are aware of WHAT and HOW happened to the whole WTC complex on 9/11/2001... here everything is exposed so very clearly! 🙄

Have we all suffered a kind of strong suggestion with words and powerful misleading emotions?

Great set. Building looks amazing

On my trip to New York a lot that was still being built. I need to go back and see it all again.

It’s always changing

What beautiful captures of One World Trade Center. The clouds reflected in the building make it even more beautiful. Have a great day!

ITs hard to miss standing so tall :)

Gorgeous photos as always.. I can't wait to see the central park building photos!

Posted using Partiko Android

Thanks I enjoyed walking around getting shots for this series if all goes well I will be able to do post on the 10 Tallest buildings

You take such great photos that makes me appreciate that building! The building design is awesome! Beautiful architecture!

It is such an amazing building, well the all the New buildings at the WTC are amazing to see, thanks for your visit and kind support

I haven't been back since they built this. I really hope I get the chance to see it one day. I was just talking with my wife the other day about something that is in NYC and I was thinking that I need to take her there someday.

IT is such an impressive building, my plan for this series is to show at least the 10 Tallest buildings which I discovered has changed quite a bit between last year and now, well and next year when some of them will open

Bang, I did it again... I just resteemed your post!

It truly is a mix of beauty and a cncrete jungle

Previously living in NJ for most of my life, until three years ago, you would think that I would have seen these marvelous structures, but have not done so as of yet.
These pictures are fabulous and a stark reminder of that tragic day.
I worked in Cliffside Park as a teacher for most of my teaching career.
Cliffside Park is directly across the river from the Twin Towers. As that day unfolded the entire school was on lock down and by noon the students had been picked up by their parents and the teachers were dismissed. Before going home, a couple of us went to the cliffs of the river on the NJ side where we were able to see what was going on. As a crow flies, we were no more than three miles from the burning structures, and we all stood there in disbelief.

I think I know where cliffside Park is I lived in Jersey City for a few years and think I went up that way once just past North Bergen isnt it I was overseas in Bosnia at the time of the event but watching it on TV i was in total shock and disbelief, i cant imagine what it must have bene like seeing it first hand across the river

Those are some great shots of the building, I don't imagine it is easy to get a picture of such a tall structure, even with wide angle lens.

I didn’t have my widest lens with me but even if I had it ANDRES tricky to get shots of these buildings with all the others around this one was perhaps the easiest

Very interesting architecture- all of it. And of course, well photographed too!

Thanks so much, working on a post for number tow in this serie s;)

I take my hat off to these beautiful images.

Today I barely managed to see the publications and tomorrow with my free time I will leave my comments, I like to express what the publications achieve in me. Happy rest.

Thanks Kindly and don't worry if you cant leave comments some days
have a great day :)

Thank you Tatto, my daughter demanded all my attention in these last two days.

Family has to come first ;)

Wow, excellent photos! That's a beautiful building.

Thanks and yes it really is an amazing building

I really like the distinct artchitecture of the Occulus! It is one of my favorite! I especially like how you meshed the two together to make the shot of the Tower and it.

As easy as you make it seem, I find it a challenge to photograph them and make them stand out so well!

Upped and Steemed


Ohh I love the Occulus, I will do a post just on that at some stage,
and your right it is hard to get good shots of them, trust me for the few I shared I have many shots that didn't work out LOL

Pretty looking architecture! I was there a year ago, I don't think I have been so close to it :/

it is an amazing building and the NYC skyline is always changing

A very impressive building very nicely done , it was a very sad day indeed ☹️

such a sad day but great such an impressive building well buildings and memorials have risen from the ashes which is as it should be

They certainly did a tremendous job erecting this awesome building in memory of all 👍

Yes indeed and I am glad it remains the tallest building which makes me wonder if there is a law no new buildings can be higher than it

I would not doubt that in terms of respect 👍

I have googled it but not found anything confirming that

I do think that it stands obvious that there will be no other taller then that built.

Ohh yes I think that is true, and I do agree with that

Great job on getting those shots JJ! NYC has some remarkable buildings.

Ohh yes fr sure sucha wide range of building styles
