wtc1NEW YORK (PIX11) –It’s the incredible image captured thousands of feet above Lower Manhattan  that has gone viral.

At first glance, it appears to be the top of a New York City high rise on a cloudy day but further examination shows it’s actually the highest high-rise of them all – One World Trade Center.

The photograph was captured by Delta Airlines Captain Jerry Walsh as he flew over Manhattan.
