This building is becoming so surreal in terms of it's height.

Agreed and it's thinness is extraordinary! You have to wonder sometimes how those thin concrete columns support such height.

Wow, it seems to stick out enough now that it can be captured from almost every "classic" NYC vantage point. Cool I'd imagine it's more impressive for those who are local, since it'd seem like the distance from 1WTC to Central Park is pretty far.

I must admit, how imposing of a presence this tower now proclaims itself against the skyline is very very very impressive. It actually has me very excited about the new generation of supertalls that will dominate the skyline throughout the course of this century. Really cannot wait for the concrete and glass "trees" to start sprouting upwards.

What are people in New York now saying about this building? I'm sure conversations are starting on the sidewalks and on the trains about it.

Tourists:
You'll get the usual finger-pointing, a photo or two and 'WHAM' to the next destination.

New Yorkers:
WHAT THE HELL? How did this come here, meh.

Not a lot of people know about this. I have a friend in New York and as recently as last month she had no idea about this.

How do you have no idea about a 1400 foot thing rising in your city? I mean even if you aren't into skyscrapers just general observational skills should kick in and you should notice the huge building.

I guess NY's skyline is big enough to kinda hide a building this size, at least to a certain extent.

If this were here in San Francisco it would literally be impossible to not be blown away by it because it would make the entire skyline look like a toy model.

I think it also has a lot to do with the lines of sight...
Also, people seem to have an aversion to looking up, for the most part. When I'm in the city, I have to fight the urge lest I look too out of place

It does. Already by far the tallest of the block.

That just shows how preoccupied we New Yorkers are.
