April's best include a close-up of a flower (and resting fly) in Carlsbad and a skyward view of the Watts Towers, but the slide show begins and ends with two of my personal favorites -- Mehdi Bouqua's photograph of a lone paletero pushing his cart along a sidewalk in downtown L.A. and Jay Thornton's photo of Marines in Twentynine Palms with a puppy on a leash.

One World Trade Center becomes tallest building in New York

Posted On: 12:43 p.m. | April 30, 2012

One World Trade Center, the monolith being built to replace the twin towers destroyed in the Sept. 11 attacks, will lay claim to the title of New York City's tallest skyscraper on Monday.
