Does anybody know if it exist a similar page like this for other size comparisons? (For example ships comparisons)
Like this?

"Building and ship comparison to the Pentagon2" by Fosnez - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:B...omparison2.svg.

Just remember that 432 Park is taller than the top floor of ESB but shorter than the tip of the antenna, so somewhere in that skinny part. The ship at the bottom is the Seawise Giant, considered the largest ever built.

So 432 Park is pretty much exactly the same length as the Pentagon measured from one side to the tip on the other "side".

What the did do today is raising the perimeter forms, I think they are almost at level with the core now.

It seems that what is slowing them down now is the crane. I guess they can't lift it at the same pace that they are building the floors. Since the crane rests in the slabs not so many floors bellow the top, I think those slabs don't have enough time to acquire the needed resistance to support the crane and they have to wait some more days for that.

With both the 59St and now the 56St cams down (don't know why they messed with the 56St cam; it gave a good view of the ground action, and gave important clues to the action aloft), we have to rely on just the 53rd St cam, which itself needs to be raised in order to follow the action up top.

I still want a 3 foot high solar panel array on top of the building to make it an even 1400 feet.
