I think it's top 2. And yeah, they even have nighttime lighting in a few of the fake windows to mimic occupied floors.

While the parapet seems to be two floors deep, it still doesn't seem deep enough to contain all the elevator mechanism, which is why I thought three floors were mechanical.

Fake lighting makes sense. I've always felt the top of the building was a little stark, unfinished. A lighted sconce might have been nice.

But it's a great photo.

Too bad they didn't make a roof top deck and garden. They could have built a floor right over those air conditioning units so that the roof deck is the top floor. That way the walls could protect the people from the wind, and the great windows are already there. They could still do this and it would be the most phenomenal roof top garden in New York.

Quite out of scale, but nevertheless stunning.
