So what kind of evacuation systems does this thing have? I was thinking the other day that a long corkscrew slide or a series of corkscrew slides would be cool and a quick way of getting people down. That or a pool of jello surrounding the base

You guys are brutal. The kid that asked the question was probably 14, without even a cursory knowledge of engineering. Cut him some slack. Man, like nihilism our here.

no there is nothing. Airplanes pass close by all the time due to proximity of 3 major airports. It is about 1 minute of flight from Newark international to this place so even with the best air defenses in the world nothing can identify and hit the plane in such short notice - a mere split second decision conditions.

the building in LIC that he showed isn't nearly as expensive as a penthouse in a building of that height in new york city. Nice view though, destroy those taller buildings there and you'll have perfect view of lower manhattan. Is it possible to see the midtown skyline from there?

On topic : I can see that construction is going very slowly now. I walk by the at&t building on 6th ave everyday and i get a view of the cranes and a little bit of the actual building. And I went from no view to this view in just 3 short months. Nothing seems to be changing. I hope they're gonna be able to full speed during spring.

Nice. It will rise above the other towers soon and then it will really stand out.

Are those projects safe. My NYC knowledge is incredibly thin for someone moving there in two years. Is that the meatpacking district?

I hate to be a dick but. Long Island City Queens is apart of New York City. And it's a condo with a view of Manhattan.
