"Honey?"
"Yes my darling?"
"What's that tall building over there?"
"That is just another supertall building, 1,400 feet tall ... its name is 432 Park Avenue."
"Supertall?"
"A tower over 1,000 feet...".
"I see, and what do you mean by another?"
"Well there are about 30 supertalls in the making ... the whole city is experiencing a massive skyscraper boom.
"How do you know that?"
"I'm a skyscraper nerd."

I believe that angle is from Forest Hills,Queens, not New Jersey.

Very good choice! I remember how we followed the hotel's construction here on SSC. It's 230m/753ft tall and 67 floors.
The views sure are amazing!

That's awesome, can you request a view room like that when booking? One reason I love staying at the New Yorker hotel (aside from the friendly staff) are the view rooms.

Looking better and better everytime I see a picture of it. Can't wait for my NYC visit in a few months.

Obviously the reason for the latest skyscraperboom is that everyone in Manhattan is trying to get closer to the sun.

Even here in Scandinavia winter was over many weeks ago.
