If this had been 19:1 (and still 93.5' wide), it would've been 1,776 feet tall. Hmmm..

Central Park is what matters, anyway, One57 is a different kind of property, with only 92 apartments, a much more exclusive building than 432.

You can't even compare One57 with this big box with tiny windows...

not the case. One 57's higher up tenants will have the ultimate view of Central Park.

True, but the residents of 432 Park will have the ultimate view of the entire city

Tiny windows? Are you kidding me? 6 windows over a 90 foot wall.

It will be six tiny independent windows, it can't be compared to the all glass facade of One57.

This story is very simple actually. One57 has one and only view of Central Park. If Central Park would be table, One57 would be king on the head of table.

432 PA will have one and only view of New York City. It's the tallest and only one with the view like this.

One57 and 432 PA are not in the same league. Each has its own. One57 is focused on Central Park, 432 PA on the city. Simple as that.

15 ft x15 ft windows are tiny?

It's a mostly glass building, it's just that support beams are also part of the exterior.

I agree with you. This will be an all glass tower for all intents and purposes.

Exactly.

As for me...432 would get my millions. Although I really like O57 too.

Yes, probably 432 PA. I would be motivated by the fact that none of the observation decks in the city is higher than this, there's no Trump or any of his daughters living higher than me and at the end, I'm on top of New York and I even have ocean views.

So, shut up and take my money Harry Macklowe.

I personally would pick 432 Park for its incredible views of the city
