One Frame, Seven Construction Sites

Ever since we read about the Greenpoint Challenge on Curbed, we've been thinking that their record holding photograph with five construction sites really isn't all that impressive. After nearly four weeks of trying to find a ground level site that captured Jersey City rising in all its glory, we finally present our 7 Site Construction Photo:

1. Powerhouse
2. Trump Towers
3. Washington Commons
4. 111 First Street
5. Athena Tower
6. Westin Hotel
7. Grove Pointe

We have a full size photo over on the Photoblog

Actually, from one angle, the Waldo Lofts were in the frame too, but at the cost of the powerhouse and Trump. Getting further north cut out Grove Pointe. Columbus Tower was pretty much blocked by the condo tower between Athena and the Courtyard.
