It seems to be a real photo, I was just commenting on how the brightness had been amped up (as MarshallKnight said). It was unnecessary... it's clear which building it is.

Yea it's a real photo. The photo was by DBOX and they definitely highlighted/ amped up 432 PA to make it stand out even more.

This seems pretty northwest to me.

While this looks almost west to me. And for sure not southwest.

Technically, yes, but you have to take into account that when people are referencing the Manhattan street grid, they simplify to Cardinal directions (Uptown = North, Downtown = South, Jersey = West, Long Island = East). While not geographically accurate, it's a lot easier than constantly saying "Head Northeast on 2nd Ave, then Northwest on W. 53rd..."

That is indeed easier to understand for most people.

Somebody with knowledge of concrete curing, please explain something: as they get to higher and higher floors and it takes longer and longer for the crane to raise and lower buckets of concrete for pouring a floorplate, how do they prevent problems arising from the concrete already poured starting to dry as the next buckets arrive to the top? Do they use a slower drying mix? Do they do some of the mixing at the top instead of bringing it in trucks? What's the dillio?

They use buckets in rare occasions, most of the concrete used is pumped up using a highly powerful concrete pump.
They don't use buckets because the overall process would be very slow, to fill a bucket, then raise it, empty it and finally lower it, and that operation repeated many times just to pour one column.
But if they'd use puckets (they do use them sometimes) the time to raise a bucket is just a few minutes, even to raise it to the future top of the building, not enough time for it to dry.

Thank you.

I saw them raising and lowering the bucket earlier today on the webcam. What do you suppose they were doing?

I don't know why sometimes they choose to use the bucket. I guess they use it when they make a minor pour and it is not worth to use the pump.

According to this image it looks like we've just finished up some mechanical floors. So if we have any luck, the warm weather combination will speed up progress.

When viewing the 53rd St. construction cam, it looks like 432 Park will be shut out of Central Park views below 700 feet by the GM building.





But based on this photo someone posted here, that's not true. The tower splits the gap between the Four Seasons on the left, and the GM building on the right:





It looks like floors in 432 Park will have some CP views starting around 250 feet above ground.
