No, it's 731 Lex — The Bloomberg Tower. Trump Tower is a bit more to the West over on Fifth Ave. In this shot the easiest thing to do is use 432 Park as reference.

These pictures are amazing! I love how you can see the workers on Tower Verre and Steinway in one shot! Also I love how you can notice a slight color change on the leaves of the trees in Central Park. Fall is coming! My favorite season for Central Park!

I'm a fan of the darker glass cladding kinda like Willis tower in Chicago which I saw a couple years ago and is still the tallest building in the continental US.

Looking at the cladding pictures I just had a realization. Looks like the vertical mullions are operable to allow for ventilation. This is a great and innovative concept since the glass remains undivided by secondary mullions to allow for operation of awning or swing windows. It also makes the building's skin have more of a "commercial and/or office" presence rather than residential. The devil is in the details and this tower is pure Satan. Love it. okay:

It looks like Gotham, with emphasis on the "Goth". Nouvel must have channeled the dude who designed Hankok in Chicago too, but slimmed it down and NY'ized it (i.e, glammed it up).
