I stand corrected; I had read about it being concrete from a bad source, but this NYTimes article clearly described it as limestone. I guess I've never given it a close enough look to realize it. A good power washing would do a world of good for the building, but I'm also still hoping for the refurbishment and addition of those windows pictured above.

In any case, Verizon Building tangent over. Cheers to 30 Park Place and what will hopefully be an incredible crown topping things off.

I've seen this building from some of the most unexpected areas. Think we have all forgotten how tall 200-299m is.

The silhouette already adds some character to the lower Manhattan skyline.
