New York - Aerials of One World Trade Center - November '11

I'd been wanting to take a semi-brief trip to New York for aerial shots of the One World Trade Center building before they top it off. These (excluding the very last) were taken late in the afternoon on Thursday Nov. 10 '11. I took over 500 shots while in the helicopter and have initially cut that down to 100 potential shots, and I'll cut down again a time or two more. This is the first set I've sifted through and edited.

Those are some damn nice pics!

Dumb question: is that Two World Trade Center under construction as well in most of these shots? I honestly think I like Two better than One, aesthetically-speaking.

I agree, the second one is definitely the better of the two.
