Good point, maybe it will be acceptable when completed but we'll see. The real deal always strays from the renders.

Thanks for the video NYBOY! Great shot of the SE facade's mechanical ventilation cladding. It's about 85-90% completed now.

The 457 foot, 42 story, 29 Flatbush Ave is U/C in the foreground slightly to the left in iiConTr0v3rSYx's photo, to those wondering.

You read my mind. That is in Downtown Brooklyn, right? I can't tell from this particular perspective.

Wow, I never noticed how tall Beekman Tower's antenna was until I saw that picture.

Antenna looks like a twig from so many miles away, tower looks massive in comparison. Sad.

a spire should crown the top of a tower/church/building with a definitive design, almost stupendous! glorifying the entrire structure. i want this spire to look good, its crowing one of the great skyscrapers???

The spire may look bad now, but it sure is starting to make an impact heightwise.

Empire State Building from Gilgo Beach LI, 40 miles away

Great clear view of ESB 40 miles out on LI also notice WTC in early construction about 5 inches to the left of it peeking out...would be able to see clearly if taken from the same spot today.

Amazing view of NYC skyline from Fire Island Lighthouse, LI also about 40 miles east

I don't really like the antenna. The whole building is presenting the future...the antenna doesn't fits , it looks so old... like we put together the begining of 20th century with the future.
