Here is one, but only has two entries

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...ght=kosciuszko

It seems lower, but still high enough to offer a good view of Manhattan.

It's been rainy for the past two days, did they really do a pour? if so, sweet! Supertall number 7 today, and the 9th ever built in NYC.

sweet thanks! Yeah the view does seem high enough. It's a project I'm looking forward to. It should get more attention when construction starts in I believe this winter

The clouds lifted a bit in some periods in the afternoon and then at night, for small periods of time you were able to see the top, as I sid ina previous post it seem the core jumped, here is the clearest image I could catch at night. I couldn't in the afternoon, because it was visible just for seconds, then the clouds passed and obscured it again.




Edit. Seems the clouds lifted very quickly, the rain stoped, and now the view is much more clear.
It is just a few minutes between the two pictures, after I took the first one, it got darker, and just a few minutes later we can see all the way to New Jersey!

DannyR2713 in case you are interested, I just posted blueprints I found both of the new and the old Kosciuszko Bridge, on the thread of the bridge, it is insane the things you can find on the internet!
BTW, the clearance under the new bridge is 88 ft. (add some feet to get to the roadbed) for the old is 124 ft. 36 feet more, not that much. The towers of the new bridge will reach 305 ft.
Edit, the images I posted don't appear, maybe later they will, if not, just go the link where you can find the PDF documents.

Now that the 432 Park Avenue 59th street cam is adjusted, we can see the Empire State Building's lightshows!

And for the time in which it was done - 1982.

It's incredible knowing that this is now a supertall!
One more core jump and it will be looking down at One57
