There's an observation deck? Thought that terrace was just for tenants.

I'm wondering when they will install the last few panels. It has been like this for a while.

It looks spectacular and dominates the view walking down 5th ave, especially as it grows towards dusk. It sort of glows and fades into the sky at the same time. I'm really happy on how this one turned out.
