I think this gives a really nice impression of the hight of 432 Park Avenue.
Probably because the big windwos don't trick the brain and the windwos in the buildings in the front are used for scaling.

The tags on the picture indicate it was taken near Silver Mine Lake in Harriman State Park. Hard to say how far is it from Manhattan because the island is several miles long, but it is about 37 miles from Midtown Manhattan, and 40 miles from Downtown (and almost 30 miles from the northern tip of Manhattan) So it doesn't get to be 50 miles away.

Anyway, that picture is gorgeous...

Manhattan and 432 Park from Montclair, New Jersey, which is about 14 miles or 22.5 km away.

Why do you say that?? They already secured an anchor tenant (TD Bank) to build. They are already clearing out the last remaining tenants to start the demo.

One Vanderbilt will be complete by 2021. Tenants are already getting ready to vacate or already have. Demo begins sometime this year.
