That's over a century of Skyscrapers my friend....did you miss the twin towers of the Park Row Building? (you can see them towards the bottom of 1WTC) it was the world's tallest office building back in 1899!!! 112 years ago!

No, I did not see them. That pic is even better than I thought !

Silly Q, what's up with the red text ? I'm just wondering, because I always read your posts, red or not. (You are one of the more interesting and intelligent posters on this forum.)

Just as well, the Woolworth was built in 1913, so it's 98 years old! And in my opinion the best skyscraper in the world, my favorite!

Hey Lawrence, congratulations ... Image very well done. We may have a better sense of how it will be the end result of this building.

And the same image, we note that lack the construction of half of the building.

If I am not mistaken, when T1 tops out, it's top would not be visable in a photo taken at the same angle this time next year. ( I am not counting the spire.)
What's unfortunate, though, is that those old classics are becoming less and less visible on the skyline. I still admire the skyline (in photos, unfortunately) from the '40's and '50's.

progress is fantastic! cant wait to see this in 3 months time. Something I want to clear up, the building obviously tapers in towards the top, and this can clearly be seen when viewing all four sides of the structure directly front-on. It only appears as a contiunal rectangular structure (i.e. not tapered) when looking directly at the corners of the building? Is this correct? It's kind of hard to get the gist of it when looking only at pictures but in some angles the taper seems to be a lot more obvious.

i know that question has been asked a number of times so your patience is appreciated.

cheers

I finally made it downtown and i gotta say, it's an impressive building. The beams atthe base are huge. I've never seen anything like it on a building.

Off topic but, I walked by The Beekman and that shit blew me away. It's truly a giant piece of art. I couldn't stop looking at it. Amazing. Good things happening in NYC.

I just wish that Beekman Tower had that curvy facade on all sides. The other sides look way too boring.

You've got it backwards. It keeps its straight profile all the way to the top only when viewing it normal to any of the four cardinal directions.

Side.*

All faces of the Beekman tower but the southern face have waves.

When i see Carlos's avatar, then i see his penthouse photos. For some reason i think of the character Bruce from GTAIV for some reason.

Keep up the photos They'll be good to reflect on in years to come

Really amazing work, congratulations!
I repeat, if you are going to show through all the Internet, please include photographer's name. It's somehow disturbing that others use your pictures and edit them without permission, or at least a link. Just a watermark
Again, amazing work!
