"Second tallest residential building in the world" sounds better than "tallest in the western hemisphere."

And not for long either

A couple of weeks old by now, but still off the charts
gourgeous, when I browse my personal collection of NYC building snaps.








Pictures of the 432 Park Ave should always come together with some
sort of fanfare. Lacking that you can have my august video
from a streetcorner close by (call it skyscraper music as the camera discovers the 432 Parks Ave building).



Awesome building, no less.

I was wrong. I must have mixed it up with another building.

The perimeter is at apparent level 85 or 1317' 6". The core is at apparent level 87 or 1348' 6".

How many more core jumps? If I remember correctly, the last few floors don't have a core.

How do people feel about the height? I think any higher would have looked awful.

The average person hates anything built in their lifetime or just before, no matter the height.

Taller modernist boxes are coming to Midtown, so it will soon have company.
