Nice pics, Harry. Trump and Wrigley make for an interesting juxtaposition.

Trump's Spire

I didn't see this posted on the forums earlier, but I found the Spire's construction website with some very good information about it. Might be old news to some since the contract was awarded last March. Nonetheless, some very nice pics of the building process of the spire. Unfortunately no official day announced yet as to when it will get erected.

Enjoy!

Great shot Wrabbit - the arches on the substation and the curve on Trump. I have seen this view a dozen or more times and never noticed this.

^Wow, Trump just pulled a Comcast Center in that last pic! This is an absolutely stunning building. I didn't really care for it at first but boy have I changed my mind as it has climbed higher and higher.
