on the upside,

at least cladding is progressing nicely. i think somebody may have mentioned, but they have indeed started to clad the NE face.

It's dangerous to work under such conditions, snow can become pretty slippery. Progress up there depends almost entirely on weather conditions.

Like Otie said, you have no idea what the conditions are at the top of the building and expect little to no progress with the storms and high winds all week......They dont go slow on purpose, take a seat

I completely agree with you and Otie, I'd rather see slow progress with no casualties than fast progress with people dying from accidents. Safety of the workers is far more important than fast progress.

It's a shame that the weather will be so poor. Hopefully it won't cause too many delays.

And Kanto, congrats to your 1,000th post in this thread!

Yeah, right now New York has a High Wind Watch which means the winds will likely by 60+ mph tomorrow

I can't give that pic a 10 because I know what will be added in the coming years.

1932 looks the best. Those ugly short boxy buildings on the lower side are terrible.

Some are indeed not the best but some are great, in that time NY had an art deco style boom with all setback buildings, later there was the international style boom with all simple boxes, and now there is the modern style with all these full glassy towers. And all together they make a great skyline.

The slots look far better in the flesh than they do in the renders. Very nice!

I know I'm late, but not only are all of the other responses to your post correct, but there were delays. the bolt holes of the base section did not line up with the bolts anchored in the concrete. Then the section, once installed was not plumb. Lastly, the electrical contractor wanted to run conduits in the sections on the ground before lifting them to the roof. That's just the delays, and in the end, we couldn't do better ourselves, so lets leave it to the experts.
