Panoramic Photo: NYC Skyline at Night Ten Years Ago

By Jim Cutler

Manhattan at night from across the river in Jersey. This was in my archive from a shoot a few years ago before the new buildings went up in lower Manhattan. Notice that there is no sign of World Trade Center One yet. Also not yet built at this time are the Hudson Yards complex on the West Side in the 30’s, nor the new residential skyscrapers in the upper 50’s. I have a ton of unpublished work that hasn’t yet seen the light of day. So many current projects keep us busy. I need to bring out more of these from the recent past.

360 Degree Photo: Top of Rockefeller Center, NYC, Before the New World Trade Center Was Built

By Jim Cutler

A 360 degree photo to drag your mouse around and have a look. This is the roof of 30 Rock in NYC back in 2006. Look south past the Empire State Building and you’ll notice the Freedom Tower/New World Trade Center 1 building isn’t there.  There are imperfections in this pano because it’s from back in the day before I regularly made panos. This one has been cobbled together from just standing in one place and turning the camera, not knowing the importance of pano axis. Today I do it  differently. Still, it’s a fun composite and I’m glad I have th shot. I know it works because I can look at it and feel the cold.
