Bummer about the observation deck but at least it's cool that it'll be self-contained. I wonder if the building will be ready by the time I get around to NYC.

Not some medium size skylines. For example, Detroit looks terrible at night.

Almost a thousand feet tall! I hope they'll put up steel columns for floors 81 and 82 to pass the 1,000 mark before 9/11/11.

Thanks Ken. It is awesome to have some real time pictures!!

The pics sure show how small the upper floors are getting. Towards the top I imagine the two cranes will barely fit.
