This guy is really starting to make an impact on the skyline. Can't wait until it's completed.

QUESTION REGARDING ELEVATION.

Yes, One57 sits at 22 or 23 meters above sea level, meanwhile 432 is at about 15, 7-8 meters bellow.

Is the ESB on a lower elevation than 432 Park or One57 as well?

The island is hill shaped where central park is basically the highest ground. The elevation goes down to sea level to the south, east, and west. To the north, which is not an issue here it continues elevated for a bit more.

Last night and tonight are Manhattanhenge, when the sun aligns perfectly with Manhattan's street grid shortly after 8 p.m. ET. The best views are on one of the major streets that run east-west across the city. Options include 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd and 57th streets.

Manhattanhenge happens four times a year, in May and July. Skywatchers will be able to see a half-sun starting at 8:16 p.m. ET on Thursday. The full sun will be visible this evening at 8:18 p.m. ET.

The next opportunity for Manhattanhenge photos will fall on July 11 and July 12.

The term Manhattanhenge was coined by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson in 2002. In a post on the American Museum of Natural History's website, Tyson explains why the alignment does not occur on the equinoxes, as one might expect:

In spite of what pop-culture tells you, the Sun rises due east and sets due west only twice per year. On the equinoxes: the first day of spring and of autumn. Every other day, the Sun rises and sets elsewhere on the horizon. Had Manhattan's grid been perfectly aligned with the geographic north-south line, then the days of Manhattanhenge would coincide with the equinoxes. But Manhattan's street grid is rotated 30 degrees east from geographic north, shifting the days of alignment elsewhere into the calendar.

I'm going to miss seeing the orange bits on this building once it's done.
