In 2013 13 historically important and beautiful New York buildings will turn 100 years old. While Manhattan is a city of change and new buildings like the Freedom Tower, One57, and 56 Leonard Street capture our attention today, passing by the stately buildings of the past like The Woolworth Building or Grand Central make our daily lives richer in New York. Sometimes I force myself to put my phone away as I move around the city and look up at buildings I have never noticed before. The wide collection of stunning architecture we have in New York is refreshing.

Larry Silverstein and Silverstein Properties created this movie-quality video to market the new World Trade Center buildings to the commercial real estate community as reported by the New York Observer and Architect’s Newspaper. It provides a great visual sense of what the WTC buildings and Dowtown New York will look like twelve plus years of re-building after September 11th.
