The Building Vanishes

How cool is this?

The See-Through Skyscraper

Once in a while…when the light and the angles are just right, a skyscraper can come close to vanishing.


That happened last Thursday, when the 52 floors of 7 World Trade Center faded into the cloud-flecked blue of a late summer afternoon. Its masonry neighbors (140 West Street and 90 West Street) stood out in contrast.



That’s not Photoshop trickery, folks. It’s an unedited pic. I usually have nothing but distain for glass towers, but I have to admit that this is really nice.

It's ghostly. What a wonderful story that would make. An office building in the middle of a major city that appears and vanishes without warning. No one able to enter or leave except at those moments when it is visible to the world.

Very cool.

slick... "ghostly" is the right word. and interesting that it's WTC 7 - wasn't that the only one not to be destroyed?
