For those who never had the pleasure of seeing the extraordinary view from the World Trade Center observation deck. This view overlooks the East River and the famous Brooklyn Bridge. This was probably taken about 1980.

    brillant Andy- you have so wonderful treasures here- views from the towers that sadly will never see again

  • Well if they ever get around to rebuilding with the newly designed structures we will again see this view but the landscape has changed
    much since this series was taken.

    The new view will be even higher, but also very different. I wish I’d seen this one with my own eyes.

    Must have been a spectacular view live… The shot looks great framed in black…

  • Thanks, if it looks good you can imagine how it looked “live”
