This is what the workers at the top of the core see now. ( But you have to imagine a finished One57 )

Perimeter rebar was installed today, so perimeter forms should jump tomorrow. Also, 56th street crane has been farther lowered. Perimeter being poured currently. 3 concrete trucks on site as well. (1 more than usual, how exciting! )

Perimeter forms jumped today! Also, some weird equipment is at the base of the tower. Anyone know what it is?

If it didn't jump during the bad weather, it's 651' right now.

From Madison Ave.....

Given how quick this building is going up, much must have changed since I took these last Tuesday.

Looking south from 69th Street (probably a few weeks ago). This building will max out at twice the height of the GM building (the tall building with vertical lines at the top center of the image):

Bad weather is coming in, already visible on the cams today but it will be worse. Heavy storms and they expect more than 5 inches snow in the city. So I don't expect them to do much work next week.

More work has been done on the Apple facility. It's hard to tell with the bad weather, but I don't believe that the core has jumped yet.

No I don't think so either LAF, just the formwork, but i think they will pour soon enough.

Btw, do you get banned faster if your grammar is shit these days or what? I should take lessons.

The core hasn't jumped yet, gonna be good with it (hopefully) passing 200m by Christmas!
Does anyone know how long the workers will get off for Christmas?

And about grammar.... I never use it on the internet

You won't get banned, but you'll certainly be looked down on. Search a little around this subforum and see if you can find any posts by, say, usafarid and L.A.F.2. Compare them and see which of the two members you perceive to be the most intelligent and reasonable.

That's like a trick question, right?
