It sure adds some modernity to the skyline not just density.

broken glass eh? based on the pattern of the broken windows in that pic, it looks like vandalism all rite. heh...the perpetrators are probably residents from the ivy tower across 42nd st who are mad pissed that the building's blocking their views

i love that last skyline shot. the orion looks like it's part of the times square skyline, and it helped the old mcgraw hill building to look like it belongs to the times square cluster also.

i think chad meant that there're 6 more floors to be cladded, not built.

Nice pictures.

Yea the broken glass looks like vandalism to me, like someone threw something at it, if it was construction related it would probably look different.
