Damn 649, a Friday night surprise!

I take back whatever I said (at SSP) about too many Trump Tower photos. Let the photos, much like the beer, keep flowing ever onward!!!

Rarely does the form of a tower excite me at *this* stage of construction, but I have to say those photos are hitting my buttons.

I couldn't help myself. Here are some shots from yesterday. I was basically trying to study the texture of the building in a different lighting condition. That is what I like about the glass thus far, and glad that it's being installed now. Like Steely said, it is a moody building because of the glass.

Tell me what you think?

I didn't realize until yesterday that it appears 2 floors are being built at the same time.

I'm liking the texture of this building
