Cool update from Bryant Park. Sad about the new Verizon Cladding. I love to see different ages of buildings, now it's like it's Canary Wharf here with only new buildings... (I now there are other old buildings near) I'm not a fan of re clads of buildings from the 70's and 60's, If they need a new facade just keep their old charm...

Here's a photo from one I took a few years back at about the same spot over the water. I recommend the tours to anyone visiting NYC, even locals. Amazing views of an amazing city.

The QM2 looks bigger than the aircraft carrier.

The glass should be farther along. I guess "change" wasn't the best word to use.

It is further along. Only 3 floors in the last few weeks, but it is moving.

^Both towers look pretty side by side. The other tower which changed to green glassy is also surprisingly good now.

Totally agree. Both different to each other, but looking good. Nice clean lines all round.
