  3. David in NYC: The article does say these are HDR photos. Real life does look like that. Just not all at once.

  6. It should only be a few more weeks before it's taller than the Empire State Building. An HDR photo can't be displayed properly on a normal computer monitor or with normal video cards.

  7. Boy, people sure have abused the benefits of HDR. It's not supposed to look so totally fake. Quite the opposite. But oh well.

    In any event, the views from the old WTC looked more like from an airliner than from a building, and these seem similarly scary. Of course, you had to look through those stupid narrow windows that allowed the towers to be supported by the external frame with no internal supports. Worked great for the wind. Fire? Um, not so much.

    Hopefully, both stupidities are fixed in the new WTC.

  8. Over photo-shopped; like cheesy real estate porn.

  9. I have mixed feelings about this building. There's no question it's turning out to be quite attractive, more so than the previous towers. The previous towers however were more dominant, well because there were two of them.

    It seems like this building is a copout from an opportunity to build something even taller and dominating. The roof of this building won't even be as high as the Willis(Sears) tower in Chicago.

  10. All seemed well as Boston was a perfect 1-for-1, but that all came to crashing halt in a hurry.Wednesday night against the Carolina Hurricanes proved to be the most frustrating display yet as the Bruins went a staggering 0 for 5 in power-play chances with seven shots on goal as they lost 3-2. the wholesale jerseys online sale Seguin cut
    the lead in half and Marchand put Boston within one, but not being able to capitalize when they're suppose to cost Boston as it dropped to 1-3 with a trip to Chicago
