Cannot see a connection there. The pilot apparently was not in contact with air traffic, should not have been crossing any buildings and should have been using the safer water route. The weather was atrocious and the tops of buildings were obscured. The mystery is why he was heading in that direction, away from his base.

The thread title is a bit over the top/sensational.
On lower Manhattan EVERYTHING is near the Trump tower...and everywhere else.

A bit like a crash in London being near the Palace.
