Forgive me if this has been asked/answered 50 times already, but I've been away from the thread for a while...

So the top two "apparent" floors are just a parapet? If so, will glass still be installed in the "windows"?

I love this picture. It is one of the few that capture the whole island and lets you compare buildings. You can clearly see all four of New York's supertalls
