Hi all,
I posted this to SSP and thought I'd put it here as well...

Ken Derry has given me a newer set of photos, taken from the crane.

There's a few hundred more, mostly in later stages. He's going to have some of the antenna installation and some final shots coming up.

Here's a couple of them. Thanks to everyone for the great comments on his work, it's really amazing!

This is the grandest architectural achievement in the United States in the past 30 years. No other building from that period comes close in scale.

My only beef with this tower is the spire. It doesn't look complete--are they going to "fix it up"? It certainly doesn't look like the spire in the render.
