    Dude, I am guessing you did not have time (or a lens) to compose a better shot, but this is just one mess of a picture...

    ^Everything you need to know about the real New York in one shot - we have 1000' skyscrapers and wooden posts with electrical or communications or whatever wires hanging off them.

    "WTC Site closed due to falling ice" <---- The headlines for Thursday ?!?

    I think another 2 feet of snow would not cause as many problems as the ice they are predicting.

    As a child growing up in Kearny, NJ we watched the Twins going up from the roof of the steeple of my dad's church.

    They really keep that building nice and clean, especially those windows. You will not find cleaner glass any where else in the city.

    I see you guys are really getting it again. Well we got about ten feet of snow in December alone and since then it's been almost clear skies every day.

    Very cool. I would give anything to have been able to see the Twin Towers going up. I had never even seen them in person though, while they were still up.
