Brookfield Place and One World Trade Center - New York, New York

Brookfield Place and One World Trade Center – New York, New York

Perspective and distance can be deceiving, as we see here. On either side, we have two of the tallest towers from Brookfield Place’s four-building complex. They are 645 feet and 739 feet tall. The pointy tower in the center is One World Trade Center, the tallest skyscraper in New York City.

While all three buildings look about the same height, the One World Trade Center is 1776 feet to the top of the spire — located a couple of blocks further east. The round glass structure on the bottom left is the Winter Garden. That’s the giant glass atrium I blogged about a few days ago.

I prefer World Financial Center to the current name — Brookfield Place sounds like a run-of-the-mill mall. The World Financial Center next to the World Trade Center has more gravitas.
