Having spent many years in New York I can verify that people don't live in Central Park. They go there for recreation and relaxation mostly during daylight hours. It's a place to enjoy nature (to some extent) amidst to concrete canyons. It it true, however, that the southernmost part of the park (the area in question as relates to shadows from these buildings) is thick with trees. Using 9th grade geometry, you can determine which parts of the park will be covered by said shadows for certain lengths of time of the day, and those areas and lengths of time will change throughout the year... since the earth rotates at an angle as it revolves around the sun.

I'm not usually one to complain about off topic, bullshit conversation, but this is like being a Vegetarian and joining a chat forum on how to cut steaks.
Build em' taller and fatter I say
Agreed.

Or for example like an Amish person coming to NYC and complain the rampant display of commercialism in New York that they should demolish all the tall buildings and live in the nature of Central Park like the Amish..............

But I think in reality even an Amish person would respect the culture and lifestyle of other cities. That's why we have cities like NYC and Amish country for people who want different things.

Every single tree in Central Park is meant to provide clean air to people living in expanding NYC.

I wonder if 217 is in this group. It appears to be, but it appears to be the non-final design that was shown before.

Eh, I think it's just nonsense. Keep in mind the table makes the center one look taller.

Hi RW, what does this model represent? Is it a mish-mash of different buildings by AS+GG in a mock CBD?

Thanks. The tall tower in the middle looked like it could have been a model of one of the early renders of 217.
