Travel vertically through time in Manhattan


Watch a 52-second animation of a vertical ride through the history of urban development in Manhattan from the perspective of 1 World Trade Center. This is a spectacular idea for a time-lapse piece: clearly a lot of work and thought has gone into this short clip. check broken links I need to dig out my old collection of slides from when I was lucky enough to be invited onto the roof of the WTC back in my university days.

If I was to add a minor crit, I’d suggest that at the end, after reaching floor 102, the ‘lift’ should reveal a photographic/video view from the top of the tower: it would be the icing on the cake!
