New York City's Ever-Evolving Panorama: 1876, 1952, 1988, 2015(?)

How about this awesome graphic of New York City from the same perspective over the course of more than 100 years: showing 1876, 1952, 1988 and a projection for 2015, though I can say with certainty that first of all, the new World Trade Center will not be fuschia—nor will it likely be completed... especially considering the news Wednesday that a design flaw in the loading dock will add millions to the final cost of the ever-bumbling project. As a result, the WTC has the pathetic superlative of becoming the world's most expensive structure, at $3.8 billion, $700 million more than the last estimate in 2008. *
