Great, but what does 52nd and Broadway have to do with this building on Park Avenue?

About 90% of New York Taxis advertise strip clubs. It must be a state law or something

Looks like the view from the lower appartments will be a desk in an office just 10 feet away.
Amazing how close this is being build to other buildings.

Luckily the real apartments are located somewhat higher, the lowest part is mostly for other use. But still, New York baby.

Yes, it's gauze, you can see the edge on the top.

As an Uruguayan, I do feel more and more proud of Rafael Viñoly while one of his better designs grows and grows...

Too bad that the 56 Street cam was repositioned. The current view, in my opinion, is inferior to the previous view we had of activity at the base, showing concrete deliveries, the rising Alimak material hoist, etc. The current Park Avenue cam is great for an overview of the rising tower, the 57 Street cam is great for viewing the activity on top, and I feel that the 56 Street cam should have been left as it was, showing activity below. Maybe a fourth cam should have been placed that could show the upward view that the current 56 Street is now displaying.

I agree, the top part should only be viewed from a higher point.

I am convinced whoever operates the cameras is clinically insane.

Good news and bad news, the good news is that the 56th cam doesn't show the top anymore.
