Yeah, in Sydney too, day 'n night. I would say more than pissed though; possibly medication mixed with booze

Thanks for the pic updates guys. Such a massive base for this one.

I want the jacket. The jeans are dirty though - gosh knows where he's been crawlin' around.

An office swivel-chair to boot!! Maybe he was Bank of America's last CEO and can't let go.

This picture comes from Timo van den Noort out of the 'Times Thread'.
You can also see the location for this tower very clearly. The green patch on the right is Briant Park and the left upper corner is the location. Imagine the view when this baby comes up.



Was this guy sleeping or what ??

I think he should be photoshopped into updates from all over the world so that he achieves cult status.

Actually, Hong Kong surpasses NYC in number of buildings. Most Hong Kong residents about 70% - 80% of its population live in tall apartment buildings. You barely see flats there compared to NYC's other borroughs HK's population is about 7 million and NYC's (excluding metropolitan areas) alone is 8 million.

the only site that says HK has the most is emporis, every other site says otherwise so I dont buy it. NYC has the most skyscrapers that are over 200m, every site says that. NYC is the KING man.

Emporis is full of it.
Their site is so outdated compared to this forum.

I tried sometime last year for photographer, never heard back from them.

Glad I found this site so my photographs won't be wasted on a site that watermarks your photos as their own (and they don't pay you).

Don't get me started on Emporis. Most of the info they have on a certain city has come from me and other outside sources. They say they have local editorial staff, but it seem like the editors are occupied with other things.

NYC is flatter compared to HK's mountainous geographical setting so land there is very limited along the the coastlines and expensive so the only way they can cope up with space is through vertical expansion - tall apartment bldgs and condominiums, unless you move to another city, which is in Shenzen right next to HK. I live in NYC but Ive been to HK myself for a week before going to Manila for a vacation so I can attest that based on my own personal experience.

the area around NYC is flatter compared to HK so you can actually see the skyline from greater distances.
