It's been speculated that the reason for the slowdown in the curtain wall was due to Ratner's plans to stop the building at 38 floors earlier this year.

But installation has resumed on the next floor above the mechanical floors. Since the new setback is a smaller circumfrence, it should be quicker then the lower floors.

i fortgot to mention that the jersey city skyline looks very smooth from this point of view. the (older one) goldman sachs tower adds a lot to the skyline, i think if they add a couple of 400 - 600 footers to this area it will look even more impressive.

Wait, what? Jersey City is in that picture, on the right. Are you sure you're from New York?

You may be thinking of Newark, but that's only 8 miles away from Manhattan.

Yea you're right. I'm confused with the Newark skyline.

I went to the Jersey gardens mall a couple of times and it's in Newark so I thought that the Newark skyline was actually the Jersey city skyline. And I thought that the skyline that's on my picture was the New Jersey skyline. There is a difference you know.

You took that picture, right? Could you take another one from the same angle in the day time?

hmm, interesting. what caused the delay in the first place anyway? could be the extra mechanical floors, i mean we got 76 residential and 3 mechanicals floors by now plus a kind of crown is coming. i guess they can't stick to the original construction plan anymore.
