Good picture, it shows how the building hangs over on one side, yet another impressive addition to the skyline.

From that last picture post; it just seems that no matter how much reflective and a lot of the time cheap glass some of these corny developers use, New York still has it's character, and is still a concrete and brick jungle, full of oldies, and just pure classics.

I LOVE IT!

Being in Times Square I wonder if it's going to have a lot of neon signs and giant image screens and such?

Those spired buildings are amazing, love this part of New York. Sometimes its about quality not quantity (height)

But in this case its quality and quantity because those towers in those shots have roofs above 800ft!

This area is doing well, with the recently built NYTime tower and Bank of America close by.

Thanks, i'll try to get some more photos tomorrow if i'm feeling well. Next chance i get tomorrow or another day i'll get shots from other angles too like looking from farther away on 8th ave, and more stuff on 42nd st and perhaps some photos from the regal theater across the street.

Also look for photos of the goldman sachs building near the WFC i'll take on the same day as well as more BoA tower photos. I just have not had enough time to do any of these effectively. Soon.

how is this considered time square, it is adjacent, but not on what people usually see and think of as time square...
