One World Trade and Trump SoHo Recreate Twin Towers View on Sixth Avenue

Crossing Sixth Avenue at 11th Street this afternoon, it was impossible not to notice. At its current stage of construction, One World Trade appears to be the same height and size as the Trump SoHo Tower. Together, the two create a view that looks eerily like the pre-9/11 World Trade Center from this intersection.

Of course, these towers are much lower than the original twin towers. The Trump SoHo is only 46 stories, and it's not even that close to the WTC site. But for the next couple of weeks, while One World Trade stays at this height, the scale of the two of them next to each other is quite reminiscent of what we recall the old World Trade Center looking like from this intersection a decade ago.

Update: How far apart are these "Twin Towers," anyway?

That's a real stretch even for a stretch.
