This shot of the World Trade Center from Brooklyn makes it look as though Manhattan has a new set of Twin Towers — fraternal twins! (1WTC and the Frank Gehry fugly building.)
It’s a trick of the angle of course, but check out how close it looks to this photo we found on Flickr from October 1972 when the real Twin Towers were still under construction.
This is a mural of the Twin Towers near Smith and 9th Street in Brooklyn.
It’s wild to think about what symbols those two towers have been over the decades, and the different symbols they have become over the past ten years.
To quote a protest from 2004, “Make out, not war.”
While the Twin Towers have long since been fallen, there’s a smaller version of them standing tall in Brooklyn Heights.
Columbia Heights at Middagh Street is the place to see them.
