Thanks for moving the thread mods. I think this will turn out to be a nice filler.

I went up to the site yesterday...? Maybe the day before and it was two stories up, I don't know it's hard to keep track of the days when all I day is write cover letters, but I'll head up tomorrow and try and snap some of my signature crappy iPhone updates.

How has such a tall tower gone so un-noticed?

Sure it's not the best looking tower in the world... but it looks to have a nice facade on the side, it's black and very slender on the sides too!

Just goes to show how big projects can get in New York when something as big as this hardly gets any attention!
