Citigroup center. Interestingly that building had a structural flaw that was discovered by an architectural student studying the building after it was built. They found that a strong wind at the right angle would blow the building over. There is a documentary on it All Fall Down (How Manhattan Escaped Tragedy)

This is off topic, but what is going on with the buildings on the island under the bridge? They look like slums from this distance.

That's Roosevelt Island. It's not the slums, a hospital used to be there and those crappy buildings are being demo'd. There is a major development undergoing now on that island.

Cornell Technion Campus - Roosevelt Island

Once called Welfare Island. Those buildings are the old Welfare Hospital which was re-named in 1942 Goldwater Hospital.
Area being renovated for Cornell NYC Tech campus.

As others mentioned, Cornell Tech is building a new campus there. Here's the thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1472761

I took a day ride to Roosevelt Island earlier this summer and it does have incredible Midtown views. The new promenade along the west side of the island is really beautiful.
