Wow, i love that shot, not only does it show the brightness of the NYT building but it also shows the massiveness and what a huge impact BOA has on the west side skyline

New York Times moves to new Manhattan headquarters: a 52-story, ceramic and glass skyscraper
9 June 2007

NEW YORK (AP) - Amid champagne corks and moving boxes, New York Times staffers selected all the news that was fit to print for a final time at their century-old headquarters on Saturday.

The newspaper's Manhattan employees were busy packing up their storied stone building in Midtown and moving the newsroom into a shining new tower just a few blocks away.

It is also a leap into the 21st century -- a 52-story, ceramic-and-glass skyscraper filling a city block, packed with the latest technology.

The paper's final page-one meeting in the old building started at exactly 12:30 p.m. -- a ritual gathering of editors selecting the best of "All The News That's Fit To Print," the motto coined by the late Times publisher Adolph S. Ochs.

A champagne cork popped over the table, with plastic cups ready as weekend editor Marty Gottlieb announced "the last issue of the New York Times in this venerable building."

By midnight, the last paper edited in the old Times building would be out. And by Sunday morning, the weekend staff would be at the new building working on Monday's paper.

The new headquarters are still walking distance from the paper's namesake Times Square. An earlier home of the newspaper, now known as One Times Square, is the building from which the New Year's ball descends each year.

The Times moved from that spot in 1913.

The new building incorporates a transparent-looking tower screened by planes of glazed ceramic tubes that absorb sunlight and transform it into energy.

It offers "Less Stuffiness, Better Ventilation," according to a poster tacked to the wall of the old building.

NEW YORK (AP) - .....

the building occupies about half of the block, NOT the entire block...

almost every supertall is 'super' because of a huge spire often reaching 100m+/300+feet in the sky.

this building is an office condo. the nytimes owns roughly the lower half of the floors and the upper floors are being sold to other businesses.
