If you are interested in the history of New York City, here is a wonderful 500 year animated timelapse video from the perspective of the new One World Trade Center.
Just after the cab passes the 250-foot mark, which puts the riders in the 1760s, St. Paul’s Chapel rises prominently on the same site that it occupies today. George Washington prayed there after his inauguration as President in 1789.
The animated timelapse video will open May 29th in the elevators going up to the observatory of One World Trade Center. It was was designed and produced by the Hettema Group of Pasadena, Calif., and Blur Studio of Culver City, Calif. The overall architect is Montroy Andersen DeMarco of New York.
