World Trade Center Final Construction Stages - 1972 and 2013

After some timing and cameras at the ready I got the photo I wanted. Today the sun rose behind One World Trade Center. I was able to capture this moment similar to an image from the towers original construction in the early 70s. Pictured below is another moment in time. Dad was part of an architectural group that toured the original Trade Center Plaza in 1972. Below is the square format snap shot he took.

As of Feburary 18, this image recieved over 50 likes on the official WTCProgress Facebook page.
