500 Years of Manhattan Skyline in 50 Seconds
The animation you are going to experience when taking the One World Trade Center‘s new elevator to the 102nd floor’s observation platform is simply amazing. In 47 seconds, a seemingly three-dimensional time-lapse panorama will show you the evolution of Manhattan’s skyline over the past 515 years. Even the most familiar building appears for a few seconds.
“The event is certainly a key part of history. We did not think you could ignore it. Having it appear in the year it did and disappear in the year it did was the respectful way of addressing the fact that it was part of the landscape.” (David W. Checketts)
