I think there's still a layer of film, maybe on the inside. I could be wrong though.

There may be, since the interior work is still occurring.

The ones that are greenish still have the exterior plastic covering on them.

Yeah, i think we all like the attention this building is getting.
Compare that shot with this one from 1968 when the GM building was the 'big man on campus'.

It's Irritatingly relevant.
It's wonderfully significant.

And I don't care who lives there.
It's the structure that becomes part of the City's-scape.

This 1960s office building eventually will be replaced by a supertall residential too.

its so crazy to think how much the NY skyline has drastically changed in the past 2-3 years, and how much more its gonna change in the coming decade. uber excited. 432 park has single handily changed the skyline the most, ofc

Was in town on business yesterday, so went to the Top of the Rock:




It's quite an experience to be 850 feet above the street and see this looming 500 feet higher:

Only in New York. Even in super dense Hong Kong, towers of this size are being built on huge plots / plazas. I won't even talk about other cities.
Here you get a 1,400 foot tall monster in your backyard. 432 PA ist just a few feet away.

Truly magical.
