Lower Manhattan, seen from the Harbor, August 2016

The cluster of buildings around the new World Trade Center building (just to the right of center), while dramatic in their way, are an uninspired heap architecturally. The Trade Center tower itself, claiming to be the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere – but only if you count the antenna on the top – seems in reality pretty squat and mundane. With all the architectural talent around, I think we could have aimed higher (pun intended). Click on the photograph for an instant view of a larger and more detailed image.
