This structure is really unexpected. Am used to skynny buildings with squares or rectangular forms in New York City. I really like this design is different, and how this building manage the sunlight is just flawless.

It's really starting to look iconic with the cladding on.

It is a really good design and adds some variety to the skyline instead of the same tall buildings

How do you think this building will handle snow? It looks like there could be a hazard of snow and ice sliding down at high speed and landing on people walking below.

I think the shape stops it, it is not shaped like a Egyption pyramid

I guess the balconies scattared all over the facade should prevent the snow falling to the ground. Any acumulation of snow, should fall into the balconies before reaching the borders, so the amount of snow falling to the street should be small.

This is my new second favorite building in NYC. Nothing will ever replace the Chrysler Building as number one.
