Obviously not your shot then. Actually, this must have been taken from the Empire State Building a few years back , before One World Trade grew to where it's a feature of the downtown Manhattan skyline. The ESB is not shown in the photo and the position of the Flatiron Building gives an indication of where the shot was taken from.

I'm surprised there was no mention of the risk of using an ultra wide angle lens too close for group shots, where the distortion of people at the edge of the frame can be unsettling, or the fact that using ultra wides can make the subjects seem very small if they're not close enough. That said, they can be very useful as noted if used carefully.
