I don't think usafraid was a native English speaker, so comparing the two is just a bit unfair. Not to say his posts weren't obnoxious, but I don't think he could follow the discussion.

Yeah, indeed he isn't, I think he is german. I agree with you that the comparison is a bit unfair and that grammar aside he was pretty obnoxious. All his comments were: when NY is going to have a 1500 ft tower? when do you think NY will get a 2000 ft tower? will this tower be 1700 ft? I don't know if he was under 10 YO or if he just was teasing us. I am not sure if that was enough reason to ban him, but he certainly won't be missed.

Pretty cool picture. Your office is just even with the top of the "Black Building", with that perspective we can see that 432 Park is already twelve and a half floors taller than the Franklin Building (in the outer perimeter) plus two more floors in the core for a total of fourteen and half. It seems like yesterday when 432 passed the black building.

Usafarid was actually a nice guy. Unproductive and a bit strange, but nice.

Tim: Yeah, the core has not jumped. I see no areas of progress since last night. It's already getting dark in NYC right now.

Almost, probably by sometime in a few weeks we'll reach the halfway point

KoolJoes view when this gets finished is going to look insane, it already looks imposing and its not even half way.

I think the concrete will look impressive once it is cleaned after construction, but I'm still uncertain about the windows. I have to imagine that they know what they're doing, though, as they have probably built mock-ups.

A jump or two more and the building should be about half-way done.



Out of curiosity, why was usafarid banned? Persistantly annoying?

German? Certainly not lol. More like from some Middle East / North Africa country, hence the name "Farid". My guess would be Libya.

The core has risen. It is now taller than anything in Queens.


(SSP)

(Pay no attention to the "800 feet" rectangle. It's a remnant...)

It's also about 666 feet, in case anyone thinks it may be temporarily evil.

Slightly o/t, but the NIMBY army on Curbed is set to topple the #1 seed (57th St) in the "Curbed Cup" this year. It's currently losing to Governor's Island.... As Skyscraper fans, we cannot let this happen! Vote.
