The fault lines near NY can't produce an earthquake bigger than a 6 or so, and even something nearly that big is very unlikely.

I think last year there was an earthquake, but it was subtle enough to not cause any damage or hurt any people but powerful enough so that some people could feel it (and some people didn't). I felt it; it wasn't that powerful. But 432 Park Avenue is a luxury condominium, so I'm pretty sure the 1% of super rich people who live there won't like it if there's an earthquake they could feel.

And even though New York has earthquakes and tornadoes (like there was one in Queens or Brooklyn about 4 years ago), New York has more and stronger hurricanes (like Sandy). And although people might feel discomfort in the hurricanes at 1000 feet in the air, they won't get flooded because they're 1000 feet in the air! Another pros and cons thing for us to consider.

Today, they lifted the new crane for the first time.
Also, I think that today they were pouring the core, so maybe next monday they'll raise it as well (and they needed to lift the crane in order to raise the core)

Lots of action on site today. The red crane has jumped yet again since the GIF CCs77 posted and is now out of the camera's view. 57th crane was lifting a box a few seconds ago to the top of the core. I can see 2 concrete trucks on the 56th Street side, and a pour is going on, though I can't tell if it is for the perimeter or core. External elevators also in action this afternoon.

That picture must be older than november 12th, since there isn't the new crane, but cool picture anyway.

Nice! Those are much appreciated.

When I got up this morning and checked the cam, I was like, "Has that crane always been that high up?"

Will this building have parking for the residents? With such a small foot print I can't imagine a parking garage underneath.

I'm inclined to say it won't, though I can't recall.

Also, more steel has gone up adjacent to Franklin National Bank Building in the Park Avenue corner where the Apple facility will be located.

To lazy to look it up right now, but I thought there were a limited amount of parking spots as well as some storage units available to residents for a ridiculous yearly fee. It was a while ago and it was attached to an article about the trash service running around a $100k a year I could have the wrong Tower though
