it's interesting how you can't even notice the copious setbacks from that angle.

That scan is amazing.

Looks like neither JDS nor PMG are superstitious, because there are 13 vertical faces on this building on the southern side.

I noticed that too. I think it's just deceiving, I think the setbacks will be very noticeable when viewed from the south.

Wow! Some great stuff in this thread today. This will be amazing & the minor bump in height to 1,428 is great too.

This tower is already legendary, ESB of our times.

Amazing times for NYC. Our grandchildren will cherish this peroid as much as we cherish early 1930's.

Time to change the title to 435 m. / 1428 ft. a slight increase of height, according to the new webpage of the building.

It's remarkable how something so tall and skinny doesn't fall over.

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven.
