There's a terrace on top of a hundred story building. That sounds super safe.

I wonder what the people in that $150mln duplex at 220CPS will think once they realize their "private" terrace is overlooked by 70 stories of a tower across the street

seems like they have slowed construction again. Been stuck on 11 floors above cantilever for about a month or so. They are taking their time on this one. Would not be surprised to see it going to 2020 until top off. j

Haha! 420 west 42nd st (Aka the Zebra Building) strikes again in post #7840. It's got a knack for trolling midtown pics. It's so homely, I want to take it home and nurture it, give it some love.

It could cosplay as a Furret, it's even got the right colors and markings!

Yeah it's definitely Dutch, after all the American colors are not by any means red, white and blue.
Wait.

No it hasn't slowed. One floor a week. Was down there yesterday and the visible floors above the solid part on Central Park side is 11 vs 5 a couple of months ago.

What has stopped is the 57th street side that sticks out. It has clearly reached its top. But the main part is shooting up quickly.

Wait.
It's still the flag of Netherlands. In the age of LED it's not exactly impossible to display the stars and stripes if that's what you wish to display.

The 57th street side has 10 floors above the cantilever, the bottom 2 are concrete and 8 above, and the tower is rising above that which can be seen from the above images, and yes, you are correct.

Not to get picky, but New Amsterdam was founded by the Dutch in 1625.

New Amsterdam became New York in 1665 after the Dutch capitulated to the English.

I've always hated that stupid building. It's a boring box, but... "Wait! Let's make it not boring. Let's make it hideous!"

I think the slight delay is a result of that, and the fact that it's a transfer floor. Should pick up again.

Maybe not. Steinway has just been halted and placed on hold.
