Maaaaybe. You can see One World Trade Center from the intersection now if you stand on the northeast corner. The problem is that the area is so upscale and tidy compared to the bleak urban wasteland I used to call home. Awnings over French doors and designer boutiques: sheesh. Back in the day, we were lucky not to break an ankle crossing the pothole-covered streets at night. It wasn't until the late 90s that working streetlights were added: but by then most of the old facades had been ripped open and turned into retail and restaurant space. It is eerie to see the Twin Towers in the photograph, however. Kind of like seeing ghosts in an old snapshot.
