Wow I did think much about it from the renderings, but I LOVE the spire! That is just awesome to me the crossbeams in the spire!

Yes, from a north/south orientation, but from an east/west orientation its thin(er), check out post 1580, (the view with the Fred French building below, taken from a Park ave. tower) this tower looks outstanding from this orientation, esp. the top.

Insane photo I found on Flickr... just imagine the WTC in the background and the countless supertalls U/C and proposed for the Hudson Yards financial district to the SW.

It looks far, far better than in the render if you ask me - not often you can say that.

Anyone have a stunning pic from ground level?

lol. thanks, but me and nygirl go back a few months. weve been in a few arguments. she just said that cus she doesn't like me. it was nothing personal or anything...no matter who said it, i was gonna post that, even if it was a mod. as i was reading her post, those words came right out of my mouth and i couldnt help not posting my comment. it was either gonna be "ur so fat" or "ur moms so fat", but i figured the mom one was going a little too far. but, yes, i did explain mysefl and made it into something humorous not rude.

btw, what is "self derision"?
