Those two towers are so gorgeous ( I prefer 250W55) and even the one in the middle is looking decent!

I remember how practically everyone was saying that 250 west 57th street was so boring and ugly in the beginning of the construction Now it looks so perfect...

Gotta say I like 250 W 57th better myself. This would have looked a lot better if it had near supertall height.

Did they use that one-way mirror glass that they have in those police rooms or something?

Nah, I think it's Mrs. Puff's one way chalkboard. Speaking of which, where's Roger? More importantly, where's the light bulb?

Thanks for sharing the photos, I think this building will be a good addition to the Theater district.

The glass on this hotel is simply stunning. My pix do it no justice. It's a great addition to the Manhattan skyline ...

Not a very visible building among those other tall buildings but it sure is a masterpiece of architecture. Very elegant appearance
