It breaks my heart every time to imagine this beauty disappearing from sight of view from a stone throw away while it makes me equally excited to gather what an engineering marvel she'll be which is the most confused reaction I have ever had

Why would you wanna imagine an earthquake hitting NY? Stop bullshitting!

But to answer your question anyhow, if you knew how the crane went up top, try reversing the whole video of how it went up (all in your head), that's how it's gonna come down

Wrong. The biggest kept secret in the construction industry is that they never dismantle cranes. All cranes are simply re-painted to match the color of the sky.

Earthquake usually has a frequency of a building around 7 stories high.

I would be more scared to be on the street that inside a skyscraper.


Why is the pool so tiny?

Yeah it's possible to have earthquakes on the East Coast, so perhaps NYC could be subject to a freak earthquake some day. A moderate sized earthquake hit in Virginia several years ago and damaged buildings in DC including the Washington Monument. You didn't know? Now you do. So "Perhaps" isn't wrong to say that an earthquake could possible one day **** with this tower, even though its unlikely.

New York City have four fault line for earthquake none of them more than 2,000 years ago
Largest fault directly under Brooklyn while people discovered tunnel have fault downward in 1911 But won’t earthquake happen now because largest can hold 50,000 years
Probably 16,000 years from now

Unbelievably beautiful. This tower's design will age like fine wine.

I’d be more scared in the subway than anywhere else.
