Yes, 361 pixels tall is just too small to see anything clearly. It's like a large thumbnail. I appreciate the taking of the photo, but not the reduction in size.

This is a great POV. To watch 2 towers rise simultanuously is pretty cool.

There we go! Much better. Thank you.

On the west end of the retaining wall there are what look like forms for four columns. Is that what I see?

I think it just looks like they're far apart because of the angle; it's looking northeast so they're not aligned. Also, 225 West 57th Street cantilevers so they're not on top of each other; it was the solution to the fact that they were right across the street from each other and view obstruction would be a problem. And this is assuming that 220 Central Park South is shown in the render and is that grey box to the right of 225 West 57th.

Looks like rebar to me. Is this now actually under construction?

Actually, the road here is supported by nothing but a dirt wall. Doesn't that sound scary if you think about it?

That rock probably has the mass of a 12-story building. Good luck getting rid of it.

The name Manhattan comes from the Lenape word Mannahatta, which roughly translates to "Island of many hills." It has a lot of natural topography, much of which was leveled to build the modern grid. Some of it, however, was just too massive to move; this giant outcropping of schist being a good example.

This was actually not too uncommon when they were first laying out the grid back in the 19th century. The painting below depicts the view up 2nd avenue from 42nd street in 1861.

Looks like we have rebar for the vertical construction of this tower yes!

This could rise any day now!
