Look to the right of the page where it says "media" and then choose the middle video. It's a video of how the system works

that's roughly 330 ft Kanto.. Pretty much the distance from home plate to the left field wall in most ballparks, and this isn't impacting the skyline yet?, if not I need to get back there and see it in person, and see how tall the "average builldings" are in NY. I've been Downtown, never to midtown while in NY. How long before it overtakes the black building next to it. And L.A.F.2. I believe the pool is on level 12, according to Blue prints on the previous couple pgs.

326 feet to be exact. And it'll overtake the black building in 5 jumps. One jump is 15,5 feet or 4,75 meters

Cool! You use commas. In my country we use dots.

Alright, then that should be centered up perfectly on the 57th Street cam. I'll check once netting is removed.

In the meantime, perimeter forms have been lifted on all four sides and both cranes have jumped with it!

Will it look like the drawings on the first page too? Or ticker or something?

They will have to turn the camera to point upwards for the first time, soon!

Cranes have jumped again. Rebar being lifted now as well. External elevators are being raised a floor. Core jump looks like it'll be tomorrow!

And we will barely see it - only a bit from the 57th street cam.

Having too cams pointed at 56th street ground level is absurd.

432 Park quickie from the YIMBYgram today! Follow for all my pretty pictures. Full update coming tomorrow!

(also: is there a way to show Instagram pics on SSP by hyperlinking? the image dialogue box doesn't have an image url to link to on the site...)
