So, now, when we don't like something, it's "cheap." Got it.

I don't think it would be sad to live anywhere in that building, let alone that neighborhood.

Unless this tower is dwarfed in the near future with more innovative-looking ones and in the near vicinity, I can never accept or respect it. At least Tour Montparnasse was appropriate for its time in the 1960s.
Not the same situation as Tour Montparnasse. 432 Park is a skyscraper among skyscrapers, even if is much taller, while Tour Montparnasse is a skyscraper in a Historical low-rise area.

Was an abomination in the 60's or any other period...

this tower is great, the problem is not this tower, but that no other towers around it get approved anymore. one tower is always the first.

The Bearstern building? Yeah they look very similar

Agreed and this is the best building ever built in this breathtaking city. That is, until Nordstrom will see the light of the day

There are shots of 432 Park that leave me flat but shots like Oasis-Bangkok posted gives a big reason why this building rocks! There just aren't others like it... and really especially for New York, there shouldn't be but it will look magnificent especially from dusk through night where its elegant geometric playful coolness really shines out. Can't wait to see how the lighting works out once it opens up but goodness I hope the vast majority of those who bought residences there actually live there or at least have others living there on a full time basis because it's going to be all kinds of awesome!

Even on a shitty, overcast day, 432 looks amazing. Thanks Oasis for sharing
Also, thanks to all the other folks that share NYC photo's, when available, as well. You guys rock Without the folks that actually live in NYC, most of the NYC threads would be worthless to visit. Many thanks!
