Plane Crashed into Building in New York – See Location in Google Earth

Here is the location of the building which was hit by a small airplane this afternoon. Reports are that the plane was owned, and was flown, by New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle and that it was a Cirrus SR20 aircraft. You can read the story at CBS News here.
In Google Earth, there are no 3D building models in the “3D Buildings” layer for this part of Manhatten. So, you can’t see how the area would look from the air.
