Love this super tower; it's an absolute beast of a tower. Now, if only I could afford an apartment... *daydreams*

Don't want to be negative but it certainly isn't my cup of tea. It's nice and tall, but that's where it ends for me sadly

I often post shots good or bad just for the sake of the perspective. Whenever I post a "bad" shot, it's because there is something there I want you to see. I don't care if you think I'm a great photographer or not. I've taken enough great shots to not be concerned about that.

I had the most incredible view of the city coming in to LGA this evening. Pictures do not do it justice.

Looks like they are unloading materials and sending them up the external elevators, but I can't tell what it is because these semis have roofed trailers. Does not look like a pour has begun yet either.
