I agree. Why else would they call a building, which is located at 440 Park Avenue, 432 Park Avenue?

A truck has just driven off still loaded, that seems odd.

Another one's backing in now. Maybe he's just gone around the block to let this one unload first.

They do that a lot, i think it saves blocking a truck in.

I don't think it was still loaded, I saw them loading empty steel structures out of the pit onto that truck. Then it drove away and this one came with poles or something that are layed to the left.

ok, I actually thought that the location was 432 Park Avenue. So it is 440. Then it makes sense that the number 432 refers to its height.

No. The address of the Drake Hotel, which was demolished, was 440 Park.

This is base of the shaft for a doublebay truck elevator for service trucks...look at the drawing posted many months ago.

So, any wagers on when then next big pour is going to be?...I am guessing at about another week to be ready to pour this level...they are really moving now with forming and rebar
