NEW YORK | Deutsche Bank Building | 565 FT / 172 M | 40 FLOORS | 1974-2007

Many people think this building was a eyesore i personally do not see why. It's not a masterpiece but it was a fairly decent building in my opinion and i am a fan of what ever style this is.

Wirednewyork:

The Deutsche Bank Building in New York City opened in 1974 as Bankers Trust Plaza. The building was acquired by Deutsche Bank when it acquired Bankers Trust in 1998.

The Deutsche Bank Building was heavily damaged in the September 11, 2001 attacks after being blasted by the avalanche of debris, ash, dust and smoke that spread from WTC.

The building has been in ruins ever since. According to the update published by the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, its deconstruction is still ongoing as of May 6th, 2009.World Trade Center Tower 5 will eventually replace the building following the deconstruction, expanding the ground space on which the World Trade Center stands, as this land was not part of the original World Trade Center.

The last picture taken of the deutsche bank building before the demolition began:

It's a shame what happened to this building, it was a very nice, modest building. I can't believe how much of a gap it left in the skyline once it was demolished.

It had a great impact on the NY Skyline above all for the colour : black.

Yeah, I feel sorry for this one too. I actually did a sketch of him for a story, where he was given a somewhat more honorable send-off than the slow, botched dismantling that occurred in reality:

Here are some photos of 130 Liberty Street I had gathered shortly after 9/11.















All except the obvious "The Day After" photos are originals.

Why is it so difficult to find pre-9/11 or even pre-demolition shots of the interior, or at least the elevated plaza? Is there a dedicated thread on any forum for this?

I like its charming personality but it looks massive and slender depending on the angle. Not something great to have when there is TWC for that.

I hope WTC 5 serves as an above-average successor to this building.
