Agreed, same with the blue plastic coating. I expect with the orange gone and the natural gray/green glass exposed, it'll look much more sophisticated and less comic book-y.

Feels like it has to be soon.

Taken by me today.. The photos you see here do no justice to how tall this thing looks up close. Very, very tall, with lots of lights in the rooms being tested during the day...

From Central Park




Vertical Panorama I felt captured the height better.

I wonder what the altitude of the airplane is in each of those shots? The middle two shots I was thinking maybe a mile? The bottom one doesn't look much higher than 432 at all.

The first 3 are climbing out of Laguardia right after taking off (runway 31 if there are any airplane geeks out there). The first pic (with the Triborough Bridge in the foreground) is quite low - I would guess 2-3 thousand feet. The next two are probably around 5-6 thousand feet.

The last shot is landing - VERY low, just before turning final approach (maybe 1000 feet or even lower). I always try to get a window seat on the left side when coming home - if you get the "expressway approach", the views are absolutely spectacular.

number 2, behind One World Trade Center.

in the near future it will be at least number 5, behind 1 WTC, 225 w 57th, 1 Vanderbilt, and 111 w 57th.

Awesome, close to what I was guessing. Great shots, thanks for sharing!

Hi Guys, Next week I am flying for the first time from Newark Intl. to Logan (BOSTON). I am hoping to take some great shots of the skyline. Has anybody taken off from Newark before on this thread. Does it give good views of manhattan's skyline?
Thanks, Ben

Number one by roof height.

I fly a lot for work (way too much, actually...), but usually out of Laguardia or JFK. For the best views from EWR to BOS, you should probably try to sit on the right side of the plane (e.g., seat F on an A320 or 737). If the weather cooperates, the view might be absolutely spectacular (for a sense of the route you are likely to follow, take a look at this). Unfortunately on the return trip (BOS to EWR) the views probably won't be as great (they typically route you west over upstate NY and then south over central NJ towards Newark - if you get any view at all, it will probably be from quite a distance).

I would love to see a rendering of all the future additions to the skyline using this photo as a template. From this vantage point, we should be able to see the Nordstrom Tower, Steinway Tower, 220 CPS, 520 Park, 425 Park, One Park Lane, Tower Verre, One Vanderbilt, 15 Penn the Hudson Yards and Manhattan West. Did I miss any?

Anyways, if someone could whip up a rendering of all those towers, that'd be pretty cool and appreciated.

Is Bronx the most rundown place in NYC? I really despise this sort of scene in NYC
