I always thought, Park Avenue 432 looks a bit too top heavy, like when the wind hits it really hard, the upper 12 floors will crack right where the last open mechanical floors are.
So I edited another two open floors on the roof in that picture from page one of this thread. (These floors are kind of redundant, I read here that the last two floors are already not real floors, but just facade to keep the "12 floors - one block" scheme.)

Imagine you could see the sky through this, not another drum:

If you have Picasa, you can select your photos and hit the "export" button and chose 1600 pixels, 1200, 1024, etc.. This will create versions of that size for all photos selected (they are created in a new folder in the "export" collection).

You could also crop the photo and/or take a screencap (which creates a bmp image) and then crop the result and "save a copy", which will provide a jpg. I sometimes do this to get a 1920 x 1080 image.

I'd call that an improvement in aesthetics!

After a week of repeating to myself, this building is not topped out, I can at last say that it is, indeed, topped out. Great change in the New York City skyline!

I went hiking today, and this overlook had the best long distance view of the skyline I have ever seen. Unfortunately, these pictures don't do the views justice because they were taken with my phone.
From 30 miles northwest of Manhattan:

I really hope this building has a lifespan comparable to that of the Gillender Building. I guarantee within a decade it's going to top the charts on surveys of NYC's least-favorite buildings. The Pan Am Building is hated for ruining the the Grand Central Terminal area, and this building ruined the skyline in its entirety. All people care about is the height...

This building, unlike its mediocre predecessor, is an instant landmark, and will almost certainly be officially landmarked once it's eligible 50 years from now.

Well done New York, it's a fantastic building and I can't wait to see it in the flesh.
