Just like typical Park Avenue buildings, elegant, but nothing flashy outside, pure lux inside.

Well, not exactly. I see your point, but these old buildings have a lot of detail, nice brickwork, window finishings, etc. They're much more inviting at street level. 432 will look best as an element of the skyline.

From personal experience I feel no difference of invitingness for any city building, in fact some old buildings with heavy stone bases felt more uninviting than newer ones.

Wow! I love the sunrise shot!

NY has a better skyline than Shanghai and Hong Kong in my opinion. But that could be because I live in Shanghai, and go to Hong Kong 3-4 times a year at least. So I am pretty used to it. I remember in 2006 when I used to live in America, I liked Shanghai and HK's skylines better. I guess you just get tired of looking at a skyline after a while.
