Interesting differences in the steel in the last set of photos. It isn't painted the standard anti-rust red. Also, the horizontal I-beams have plates on the outside with tabs sticking out.

What is going in these floors? Observation deck? Communications gear? ... ?

It is a special epoxy paint since these floors are mechanical rooms with air intakes and exhaust and the fireproofing is different, cementitious. This epoxy prevents the corrosion but also allows the fireproofing to adhere to the steel and pass the required pull tests.

You're Welcome guys! But I should say thank you for showing appreciation and thanking me for my photos.

I really do it to share and post on the forums... and atleast here I get thanked for it or complimented for it unlike another forum that people only seem to be complimenting one person for the same exact shot every single day.

So thank you guys!

Everything is tall in Manhatten! And yet this tower is another landmark among the other giants. Brilliant.
