Apparently, I am having some kind of trouble viewing the 59 St cam, which for me is inoperable. I do not even get the multiple dots that indicate that the cam is loading. However, the other two cams are fine. I wonder if anyone else is experiencing the same problem with the 59St. cam. They are pouring concrete somewhere up top, that I cannot see. I am guessing they are pouring perimeter beams, as yesterday, I say columns being poured.

Having the same issue with that cam all morning so not just you. Click the link and acts like nothing happened.

I've had similar sproradic problems with the cams, though all 3 are working for me at the moment.

Anyway, here's the view from the "57th St Cam" as of about an hour ago :

That cam is definitely not working, as MrSlipperry519 is experiencing the same problem. Thank you 57th&1st, for your photo. Since the CBP (concrete placing boom) is in the position shown, it is not possible to tell whether columns or the perimeter beam is being poured. If possible, and if you can, when the CPB is on your side of the core, see if it is placing concrete between the column forms, which will then tell us that the perimeter beams are being poured.

I really hope they get this fixed.

Where is this cam? In the cam section of the official page I can see only 56, 59 and Park cams

Btw, 59 cam is working perfectly for me

Sorry Kanto, no, there's no real 57th St webcam...

This is just a snapshot from my apartment's terrace on 57th...

To my eyes, it looks like they're pouring the beam...

Yowza! Awesome view. Would you mind posting a wider (more of the skyline) shot from your vantage point?

57th&1st and Kanto,

Thanks for those screenshots. I am at a loss as to why the 59St cam does not work, while the other two do. I tried also on a Mac as well as on a Windows machine, with no luck. Is there a setting or something?

A mystery. From your screenshots, it looks as if perimeter beams are being poured.

Yes, it is the same for me, it's not just that the camera is offline and the screen is white, but that the button doesn't work at all.
That happens to me with firefox. I just tried with Google chrome, and then, the button did work, but still showed a white screen, as you said, a mystery

update.
I just tried again with chrome and now I can see the camera, Firefox, still nothing.


Here's my screenshot, as you can see, they are already placing rebar columns on the east side, it seems they are working in a quick cycle, I think we may see another jump as soon as next friday, if they finish pouring columns and beams today (that looks that it will be the case) and they pour the slab and the core tomorrow.

I'm using Chrome, so that might be why it works, but I really dunno

Btw, it would be incredible if there would be another jump on Friday

Here's the full view...I'm facing south (that's 1st Ave just left of center in the pic). 57th St runs straight left to right - this panoramic shot makes it look like the street is boomerang-shaped, but that's just a distortion from my cell phone stitching it together. 432 is all the way to the right, (practically invisible when shrunk down like this - it's MUCH more noticeable in person):



Here's a link to the full-sized version of this pic - a little easier to see 432:

http://imageshack.us/a/img845/5198/gv2z.jpg

And here's a pic of just the area around 432 - in person, Citigroup dominates the view, particularly in the morning when the sun makes it look like it was carved out of ivory. I'm really hoping that 432's white concrete has a similar effect. I think when it's done, 432's roof will be higher than the top edge of this picture:

If Citigroup Center is dominating that picture now, imagine what impact 432 Park would have on the skyline!

Pretty cool view you have there, and a privileged position to see this tower grow, is that a mini metereological station you have there?

And speaking of this tower grow, RobEss of SSP took this picture from Bushwick, so the tower is already visible from Brooklyn!

I think there were like two other times when they did a jump core within 3 days, we'll see tomorrow if they pour the core, if not, then it would be on saturday.

I am having that problem with Firefox, but not with Chrome, nevertheless, I tried your tip in Firefox and it did work there too. Rare, It only works if you choose a new private window, if you use just a new window, it opens the window with the 56th st. camera.

Great, even though that pic is taken from a higher point.
