Normal people are totally clueless and apathetic to construction. They have nothing to do with it, nor the resulting buildings. What does it matter what they think? It's their loss.

Thanks for the updated pics. I have a feeling this building is always going to look somewhat underwhelming from street level pics but impressive in skyline pics. Hope I'm wrong

The more I see this building the uglier I think it looks. With those big exposed areas of concrete it looks like some of the old Eastern block buildings. The only thing impressive about it is the height which combined with skinny it is also makes it look strange and out of proportion.

I think the word 'concrete' is making people see this as worse than it is. If the cladding was replaced with identical-looking 'white stone', I'd bet less people would complain. I've even seen people call steel panels 'concrete' of a building they don't like, to make it sound worse.

This building will look magnificent in the sun. Most of New York is dirty and ugly this time of year.

I am totally annoyed with Earthcam when they do nonsense like this. This morning when I looked at the 53St cam, they presented this view as a teaser:



Then, they returned to the previous view. What is going on with them?

The 59th Street cam, being the higher one, should be zoomed in as close as they are willing to go on the top floors to show construction progress. I saw that camera zoomed way in one day, and the camera is capable of providing a very clear and close view.

The 53rd Street cam should be pulled back to show the tower in relation to its surroundings, including the Park, and tilted up to show the tower rising above the others as construction proceeds.

I'm assuming it's taking so long because they're on a mechanical floor. But when the core does rise, here are the next buildings it will pass... including the tallest of the World Financial Center complex and the shortest of the new World Trade Center complex.

Note how the RCA (now GE) Building stands out so prominently, overlooking Central Park. Nearer, to the right, 500 Fifth Avenue makes a strong presence on the corner of 42St and Fifth Avenue. Going further to the right (east) is the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, with its twin towers. Just in front of the hotel is the New York Central Building, and to its right, the Lincoln Building.
Thanks marciato, summed it up nicely for me without drilling me

Just look at that photo (by the 600West218 )

I hope the snow and the cold clears out in the next few days so this baby can rise even further and hopefully hit 1000' by July..
