To say that that piano is ugly would be an understatement! To say it's a work of art would be absurd.

Where exactly is this new crane standing, also in the lobby?
So this crane will be close to half a kilometer tall in 2018.

What*would be the right term?*Whatever it is, it's something that is going to be fairly in-between those two terms. Modest doesn't seem right. Work-of-art is the term I can think of any else that best describes it.

Meanwhile, the build rendering is gorgeous!

This tower is going up super slow considering the tiny floorplate.

It's not like it's being build in the middle of nowhere.

Once they punch the rebar through the roof of Steinway Hall, they should be able to start building the floors normally. I'd wager this thing will start shooting up in the next couple weeks.
