Below are two pictures: One shows the Woolworth building from 1928, and one of One World Trade centre shot by Delta Airlines Captain Jerry Walsh last week. (via Reddit user etterstosnapdragon on /r/nyc)

The Woolworth was the world’s tallest building from 1913 until 1930, when it was ousted by both 40 Wall Street and the Chrysler Building.
