Good sweet lord, that last picture! Greatest on earth (obviously I'm biased). I will say, though, that Midtown is looking pretty pointy these days. Steinway and TV will not help that situation.

A bright sunny morning - and the sun is hitting just right to give a glimpse of the contents of the top mechanical floors (click on pic for full size):



If you count down 5 levels from the top (which would, I believe, would take you to level 86, or actual floor 80), you can see 3 or 4 very large rectangular objects. Could these be part of the mass damper?

Yes! Good point - I hadn't noticed that. I believe that would be level 82 / floor 77, which would be a 'normal' apartment level, so clearly NOT mass dampers.

They look like ready to be installed windows with a piece of protective cloth thrown over the top.
