The base has 3 more rows of glass though. If you add those 3 rows times 6 columns times 4 fašades, you get 72 more windows. 1,728+72=1,800!

Indeed, on 919 third Avenue the windows have an edge on the bottom too. and here the ( black ) concrete still looks good after 40 years.

That building seems to be a good reference for what 432 park will look like.

Meanie! I was really looking forward to getting a prize, but I'm glad there's no prize a little, because I'm pretty sure I got it wrong.

And I'm not a pro. Until recently I didn't want anything to do with this building because I just didn't have interest in it.

Rebar is rising for the next floor columns.

I'm a little ahead of myself, but as soon as the core rises again, here is the next set of buildings it will pass (as many as I could get in one screen grab anyway).

Next time. Although feet are more precise than metres so the list might be slightly different as a result.

What I've always wondered is why the building to the left of 432 Park ave only has windows on the side at the upper part and there is a simple brack wall instead of windows in the lower part. Any reason for this?

It's because there used to be an old lowrise over there that was demolished to make space for 432 Park. It was the Drake Hotel
