The rising 1 World Trade Center is changing the face of the Lower Manhattan skyline as it climbs all the way up to 1,776 feet, which will make it America’s tallest building. On the Lower East Side, another downtown neighborhood, but one known more for nightlife and historic tenements than tourists and office towers, the view from 195 Bowery is perfectly unobstructed, giving you a one-of-a-kind glimpse into the changing cityscape. Looking out over the rooftops, all the way to the skyscrapers of the Financial District, the view cuts to the core of what New York City really is: a collection of diverse neighborhoods.
Manhattan has one of the most famous skylines in the world, and the best part is it’s constantly changing. A perfect example is this photo from a private terrace at Penthouse B at 44 Laight Street in TriBeCa, which is available to rent through CORE’s Liz Dworkin for $20,000 per month. Look closely and you’ll see a crane and steel rising in the distance. That black speck is 1 World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan, soon to be the tallest building in the country at 1776′ tall. Today, according to the latest update, the building’s structural steel has risen to the 91st floor, and it will keep rising rapidly until April. It’s fun to see how a view changes over time, and it’s even more fun to do so from a Jacuzzi.
