Found this one online: This photo is from about one week ago.

This is the most exquisite scraper being built in the United States, maybe even globally. That is saying something considering the fact that the Freedom Tower, Brayant Park Tower, Comcast Center and the Waterview Tower are being constructed simotaneously. IMHO of course.

Surly not anyone with a sense of reality. Version A and B of the Fordham Spire will never get built. Let it go.

I was driving south down Wabash yesterday, and was almost blinded from the glow off of Trump Tower. It was seriously bright. Beautiful but pratically blinding. Daylight Savings Time coming earlier this year has helped get nice photos later in the evening earlier in the year.
