The density of NYC makes it appear that its buildings are shorter than they are, while even the shorter ones of them are taller than anything in my country

^ Yeah, 4WTC doesn't necessarily look like much to me, and the thing is essentially a 1,000 footer, and dwarfs most of NYC's other towers when compared in a diagram. But since it's near 1WTC and so many other bulky 700ft+ towers, and has a reflective skin which minimizes its apparent bulk, it doesn't make it seem all that big.

On the other hand, this building is going to be so damned tall, that it won't matter all that much that it is so slender. It will still dominate.

I ventured past the fence to touch it, and it seems like painted concrete to me.

No up close pictures? We know they haven't painted any of the concrete, so that tells me it must look pretty damn good

Crane on 57th Street side being jumped right now!!

Edit: Gosh, it is painful watching them try to jump this crane. The new piece keeps being slid in and out of the crane. How will they build a supertall if they have this much trouble jumping a crane??

It's good now, although I only have seen them using the 56th crane since.
