comparing that image to this diagram, it looks like the crown still has another 100 feet to go. it looks like the right half of the roof has topped out, which should be around 820', but the left half of the roof has only risen a couple stories higher than that. eventually it should be 944' to the tip of the crown.

Walked into the office today, looks like construction on the spire is going on. I'll go snap some pics during lunch.

Thanks for that round of sensenational pics New Jack City! (the smog really ain't so bad BTW). The chaos on the street in the 1st pic post is fantastic.

Also cheers MDguy for all the pics - loving the sunset shot by NYguy, and of course our best.photographer.evah! Carlitos! You've been diligent enough to keep us all up-to-date on a regular basis with this one. Much appreciated!

You're right.

My apologies, my vantage point was from Union Square and got a little excited.

Thanks for the comments Muse, it can be a pain taking pics with all the street lights and elements in the way.
