Where has it been stated that the side lot has anything to do with Apple?

It most definitely does not. We've just been using that as a shorthand, since it looks so similar to the Fifth Ave Apple Store. I don't think it's been covered very much, but we do expect retail there. And hey, maybe Apple could open a store there!

I am amazed at how this tower can be so tall and yet so slender.

Has anyone noticed the boom on the south side crane has gone?
I might be a bit late, but oh well:

That seems like it will create some very intense pressure differentials from the interior to the exterior when you're up 89 floors. Its impressive given the huge size of the windows themselves.
Sorry, I don't have any more info.

On another note - Vertical_Gotham - I really enjoyed your tour - thanks!

It's happened since I checked progress yesterday. Great find!

Perimeter rebar has also been placed today, indicating that perimeter forms should jump tomorrow if weather permits.

432 has overtaken them now. Although I personally don't think the core itself is 634 feet yet. More like 625.

Yes, it is. Including the portion of the core currently inside the climbing system, the core is now at the 41st floor or 635.5 ft. just one more jump (that could happen as soon as tomorrow) and it will overtake the Sony Building.

BTW the weather today is absolutely awful in NY. From both the 53rd an 59th st cameras all you can see is a thick gray layer.

Yesterday was a busy day pouring concrete for the perimeter beams, both by pump and bucket, with work not over until about 7:30 PM (EST). In addition, some of the column rebar was placed for future columns.

Today, the day started with heavy fog aloft, but at ground level, concrete operations were in full swing. With the fog now lifted (still a very dismal looking day), floor slab pouring is underway, representing the 39th apparent floor (35 actual floor), with climbing exterior forms being raised.

So it's the 69th tallest in the city and the 197th tallest in the US now.

I also included some other shots of the views taken from my iphone camera from my building.





Upper East Side

I also had a great view of Citi Corp and Chrysler but my battery died. lol.
Your last photo showing Hunter College which is pretty prominent in the middle of the photo is where I work and usually get my lovely shots of 432 Park and One 57. I should wave at you one day. haha.

Hunter grad here! I always wondered how amazing it would be watching 432Park from the bridge connecting the two towers. Might stop by in a couple of years to check it out.

Right now, 432 Park Avenue has reached approximately the same height to width ratio as the WTC.
