I don't understand why even in NY people are so constructophobic. They have to come up with such lame excuse like shadows which aren't even a real problem 90% of the time.

That's such a first-world problem
"Oh wah, my beautifully maintained park in the middle of one of America's greatest cities has shadows blocking my tanning spot for 10 minutes"

Playing peek-a-boo from the 7 Train in Queens. Several viewpoints, from miles away to right across the river.

took some quick shots while riding passenger across the Tappan Zee Bridge. ~25 miles away. The monolith is 432 Park.

It's a condo, so 0% rented out.

New buildings in Manhattan, especially superluxury buildings, are usually condo, not rental. The land costs are far too high to justify rentals.

On the webcam it looks like they're installing the rebar for the top level columns. Or is it the second from the top?

Is there any particular reason why there is U.S. flag placed on building?
