Haha, I don't think so. When it's positioned like that, it's not being used.

I want to say 32 for core and 30 for perimeter.
I think it's actually 35 for the core, so the next jump will be 36 apparent floors. Is that correct?

I believe we are on the 2nd MEP floor for the perimeter, so 30 for it. The core is 2 floors above the perimeter currently. After jumping it should be 3 above.

This will probably be the tallest crane mast in NYC history. Maybe even world history.

I'm talking about actual squares from the ground up. I count 34 to the core in Berenholtz's latest photos, and who knows how old they are...

How come they didn't put the crane on top of the building like what they did with the WTC towers, wouldn't this have made construction faster or they only do this with residential buildings. Because didn't they do this with the burj Khalifa, so maybe it might be the tallest crane mast in The western hemispere.

So am I. I'm going by the SSP Diagrams. I probably should have said so before.

Probably has to do with how small 432 Park is. Not enough room for kangaroos to sit in.

The footprint must be too small. It can't rise on the side either because it might damage the facade.

Also I think the Burj Khalifa had cranes on top, not by the side.

Highly doubt it. There's an Apple store on the southeastern corner of Central Park on Fifth Avenue close by.
