I think the flags are pretty cool. You're going to have to live with the poor quality of this picture, though.

Look at the bottom left of this photo...looks like there are some British ex-pats in the neighborhood who want to join the party - I think they're going to need to find a bigger flag pole!!!

57th&1st,

Thanks for posting the high-quality pictures of the top of 432 Park Avenue, especially the close-up photos. From your pictures I see that the last series of perimeter rises show a three-story space on the south side, but only a two-story space on the north side (apparent floors 86,87,88, actual floors 80,81,82).

Did 432 Park Avenue surpass One World Trade yet?

You know what dude,, You make your own post's, with your own photo's,, My hat is off to you there..Don't apologize to ANYBODY, because the pic's may be a tad blurry. The ppl bashing you as of late, need to just enjoy, that you live close, and have access to provide everybody with the update's.. I myself appreciate, and I'm sure most other's do..

There will be taller towers built nearby, so no.

Another milestone being celebrated at 432 Park Avenue. Yesterday, I noted in an earlier post that the delivery unloading area had been cleared in anticipation of an event, and this morning, tables are set up for the celebration.

Let the party begin!!

Apparently, those giant flags on the sides of the building weren't quite getting the job done. Maybe adding a ring of flag poles to the top of the perimeter will help...:

I don't get it why a flag should hang at the surface of this tower. Everybody knows this building is being built in the USA, so why the flag?

Well, Martijn1, I guess you just don't get America, then.

I just noticed them on the Webcam, where, obviously, can't be seen as clear as in your pictures, I wondered what are those white sticks... Now in your pictures is clear they are flagpoles...
But that somehow baffles me, if there are still two more floors on the perimeter to really top out the building, why are they are making such a fuss now?

I thought maybe we had an error on counting the floors, but there are only 10 perimeter floors above the last mechanical open level, and there should be 12...

Is that usual that they conmemorate the topping out of just the core?

Maybe it is just the farewell of the core climbing system...

A helicopter has been flying around for some time already, so today 432PA has reached a milestone, maybe the superstructure was topped-out and only the parapet is left, like two hollow floors
