The new World Trade Center is about to top out. Below are some remarkable photographs from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (which owns and is building the whole complex). The Port Authority photographers go where I can't go, and don't want to go. I must admit that I've really enjoyed watching this thing go up online and from looking at it daily on my way to work. I will almost be sorry to see it finished early next year. Yes, it's a conventional skyscraper, but a pretty good one.
