The cladding looks really nice. And it already feels massive. Kind of surreal watching this go up after years of planning.

It doesn't seem to slow them down.

I'd love to see the view from here in about 10 years:

Plan a trip!
NY & NJ are both parts of the USA: no visa or passport needed to cross the Hudson River. There are ferries that cross the Hudson. In addition, the historic PATH tubes will get you from Herald Square, NY, NY (NY county, NY is the NYC borough of Manhattan) to Hoboken, NJ.
Hoboken, NJ is south adjacent to Weehawken, NJ, where the photo was taken looking east.
The Hoboken PATH (underground) station is next to the Hudson-Bergen light rail terminus that connects to the line that runs along the west side of the Hudson River. The arrow in the diagram below pointing to "PATH to 33rd Street" terminates under Herald Square, sorta between NY Penn Station and the Empire State Building

Well, since nobody knows, I tried to approximate the height from some of the recent pics. I think that the building is now approximately 154 meters or 505 feet tall. If anybody has a better figure let me know and I'll change my diagram
