YES, EXACTLY! I loooooove to walk thru the Financial District for that reason alone. You just feel so tiny amongst all these tall buildings crowded together. Then once you get to the WTC, it opens up a little more (the way it is right now). I'm sure within several years' time, when all the buildings are up, it'll give everybody that tiny feeling.
I love to walk up the streets east of the WTC - away from all the subway stations near the WTC. You start to see 1/4/7 WTC, and it just hits you. WHAM! I couldn't stop looking up at 1 WTC my last visit... It's just soooooooo big
