Looking sharp on this clear crisp morning (with the crane for 252 East 57th rising to the left)...click on pics for full size:


Some slow progress on one of the mechanical floor drums:


...and a window washing rig (?) hanging by some LOOONG cables:

Oh yeah. The gaps in the facade allow wind to pass through, reducing lateral pressure AND breaking up vortices, making for a huge reduction in building sway. 111 w 57th is going to have a couple of similar gaps as well.

Talk about an exclamation point on the Midtown skyline.

The era of Supertall Pencils in NYC has begun.

432 PA in the 70s ... hope this ongoing renovation will make the tower better.
