You can see the contstuction cranes from Route 3 heading east into NYC. Once you get to Secaucus you can really notice it. 432 is going to look amazing from Hudson County; especially when your driving through Secaucus to go into the Lincoln Tunnel.

Sunday morning from various vantage points:

You'll notice that while it is visible it doesn't really stand out yet. I think once it gets two or three hundred feet taller it will.

This building is so tall now! I can see it prominently next to the Bloomberg Tower, but it doesn't stand out like One World Trade Center or the Empire State Building yet. It will soon be very prominent in the skyline, and it'll join the world famous group of buildings with harmony.

Most of the new towers are very thin.
