We will see such jumping cycle when they reach the 7th floor cause that is where the regular floors begin

From time to time yes, but it doesn't happen very often

The 57th cam is zoomed out again. Good, because I think the view on the core is better visible from the 57th cam, since the crane blocks the view from 56th.

Yup, 57th is the best for observing the core while Park is the best for observing most of the perimeter columns.

What they are now lifting is the rebar for a concrete spandrel beam, right?

Indeed, in fact I'd say such windows are the perfect choice for a residential building because having windows from floor to ceiling would make me feel uncomfortable, as if I'm being watched from everywhere

Compared to most modern buildings, I think it will appear the exact opposite of glassy. Compared to older towers in new york though, I would agree.

The window size is irrelevant to the overall "glassy" appearance of the building. Instead it is the percentage of facade that is comprised of glass that will determine if it looks like a giant glass wall. Because the concrete floor slabs and columns will be exposed, a good percentage of the building's facade will be concrete rather than glass.

This appeals to my personal tastes but definitely not everyone's. I think it fits well with new york's older skyscraper style. I would hate to see all new buildings in new york be clad entirely in glass. This will add to the variety of buildings that makes new york unique.

It is my prediction that as this tower rises, we will see fewer and fewer complaints and criticisms of the style. It is high quality construction and will be relatively unique in the city. It will be a sliver of matte white and glass luxury jutting impossibly upward into the sky. It will be quickly become an icon just as beekman tower has.

So as Kanto would say...

I've only visited NYC a dozen times in my life but one thing that fascinates me is the concept of privacy in such a dense metropolis.

It seems that once a city gets to a certain size and density, privacy comes not from hiding behind walls but from being lost in a crowd. I vaguely know everyone ever visible from the windows of my house. Similarly, nearly anyone looking in at least vaguely knows me. The opposite is true in new york. There is only a minuscule chance that you know anyone who might be looking in your window.

The same is true for just walking down the street. Because there is so many people, anonymity is achieved and provides a sense of privacy. Walk down the street in a small town in a scandalous outfit and everyone will know and make you the talk of the town. This is far less likely in NYC and results in a sense of privacy.


This is my theory as to why large windows aren't troublesome to apartment dwellers in new york. People might be looking in, but who cares, you'll never meet them.

Now if a famous, scandalous person lived in 432 park ave and paparazzi were on the prowl, this could be an issue. Tripod mounted extreme telephoto camera lens could be used to spy on them. But it doesn't seem that smaller windows would solve this problem. There would just be a slightly smaller chance of being photographed at an exact moment. But they'd still be shooting pictures through those smaller windows.

Agree. It surprised me how people named it A Glassy Tower lately even though by percentage of glass it's one of the least glassy towers curently u/c (only beekman is less glassy I think). It fits my taste as well since towers with large surface of glass are somehow boring to me, although I'd like 432 even more if the structural facade protruded from the windows, unfortunately from the latest interior renderings it looks like the windows and structural concrete will make one flat surface from the outside wasting "3D" appearance of the facade.

Well, unless they have helicopters, it's hard to look into an apartment 400m up.

Btw here is a link to some new pics.

just checked the cam and although I can't see much (it is dark now) it appears they covered most all the 56th street side with sheets.

Did they have a big concrete pour today? I was out of town and didn't see the cam - if someone can update me on this it would be great. Thanks
