I don't believe this has been talked about before.

Here is a link to the video: http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/rise-o...dom/index.html wimdu
Great holiday apartments that let you travel like a local.
How curious? Forgive my ignorance but why the letter 'n'? Also I think it is an interesting mix of new and old. The Morse reflecting an outdated form of communication adorning a very modern building. I can't wait to travel to New York again and have a look at this site.

The N stands for New York according to the video.

That doesn't sound very logical to me, maybe NY or NYC would have been recognised better?

Can you produce one of your created renders from the angel of Carlos's long island penthouse view? Would be awesome for all to see on this thread here.
I like the way it towers above those buildings from a distance.

Tornado warning in effect for all of NYC area from 4 pm to 8 pm. Hope they got everyone off the building and everything safely fastened down. Strong winds are very possible, even more so 800 feet up in the air.

You are correct, it will be less prominent. It will have the same height but it gets much smaller towards the top so the building is much less massive and imposing than either of the old towers. It is one of the principal complaints that many have about the new design
