Agreed, I can never call it 432 Park again, the name Tetris Tower just won't go away off my mind

They should light the windows in standard tetris blocks on the day of the opening Tetris tower it is. It's hated and it's loved this tower, wich means it's good.

Hello everyone! I know it is considered structurally complete skyscraper with antenna included or rather architecturally if we remove the antenna would not be that skyscraper, but you could say that this building is today the highest in New York right? Because if I'm not mistaken WTC1 has 541 meters high but without the antenna are 417 meters, and the ESB are 449 meters without antenna 381 meters, so if we talk about vertical wall without antennas is the highest (yet) true?

Then you could say It's the highest in the western hemisphere.

I think not because such Willis Tower in Chicago is 449 meters excluding the antenna if not mistaken

Now that they've officially renamed it The Tetris Tower, my rating of it goes from a 6 to a 7.

Is there a real term for loss of (perspective?) when looking up at buildings from the base?
Cause in some of those shots 432 doesn't look any taller than the munchkins next to it.

I know exactly what you mean, I've always hated that angle when the camera is shooting almost parallel to the subject. It's one of those stumbling blocks cameras can't get over that show how they still fall short of vision except in terms of zoom and over exposure.

I agree that Tetris Tower is a good nickname and it would be really cool if they did a lighting scheme controlled perhaps by a smartphone that made it look like Tetris blocks coming down the walls. It would be huge publicity for opening ceremony and might alleviate some of the negative stigma surrounding these ultra-luxury towers, making it seem a little less jaded and removed from the city even if only for a while.

I've said it before, but I get Guitar Hero when I look at this tower.
