See the New WTC Views, 80 Floors Up

This Architizer blog post features breathtaking photos from the WTC Progress Twitter account.

"From the 80th floor, one can follow the avenues all the way up to the fortress of skyscrapers in midtown, with the Empire State Building as its crowning centerpiece. Meanwhile, from the eastern window, the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges appear thin and delicate, dancing gracefully over the East River. Dramatic views from the 84th floor show downtown New York bathed in fog through a frame of wispy blue scaffolding fabric."
