Considering that NY has a 4,500 year old obelisk from ancient Egypt, it's appropriate that we now have a great pyramid, as you aptly called it!

I missed this by a few days... But I want to congratulate this for topping out. It's a really beautiful building. New look for New York.

Hope the cladding goes really fast, I'm really impatient for the final result.

If it didn't have the terrace openings, this building could throw an avalanche over 57th street.
But just in case, watchout if you are walking by there after a snowstorm...

at least a crew would be easily able to remove the snow by dumping it into the river!

Just to make it clear -> I don't think its a pyramid in the same sense as, for example, the Luxor at Las Vegas is, but since it is a quite apt metaphor and comparison, I decided to present this:




From SSP diagrams... Now I just wonder...

Is it actually higher or lower than the Cheops !? ...What do you think about this comparison and what is the 'pyramids' real height ?

Edit: Wikipedia also says 142 meters:
