Agreed, great work. I'm looking forward to dragging my girlfriend to the Skyscraper Museum when we visit in a couple weeks.

Also, I don't think I've seen that render from the Park before! I was worried it wouldn't look all that imposing from the Park, but even at 1050 ft., it looks pretty massive there. Sure, Steinway and Nordstrom will steal the spotlight, but this thing is nothing to scoff at. And from the Top of the Rock, it's going to be front and center.

Looks like the alteration at the top of this tower is the latest design as it is marked proposed in the image below ! Design can still be tweaked however as it may not be final. IMO, hopefully they forgo that latest itineration. The x bracing I am very satisfied with.



keep in eye at this Architects (Adamson Assoc) website. I am sure once they are ready for the final version they will post it on this web page.

Make a deal with her: first visit the Skyscraper Museum then the Museum of Sex. Worked for me.

Lol I don't remember any monkeys. Sex toys yes, and the porn in the basement.

Anyway I just hope there won't be any more delays and we can finally watch this tower's climb into the sky.

The one time I went they had a VERY GRAPHIC exhibit on how horses have sex. I entered thinking it was going to be some hilarous museum with some friends and left scarred. Too much animal genitalia

Just read the reviews: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractio..._New_York.html

Hmm, I went there 4 years ago. Things change, so maybe it's worse now.
