I'm a huge fan of those first metres of cladding. Thank you all for the photos!

Got a new cell phone so decided to test it by taking some pictures of One57:

Note they are now 6 visible floors above the concrete clad mechanical floor. They are sticking to one floor per week!!

However, it looks like no significant progress with the cladding in the previous week:

Those new angles, the profile shots, make it look extremely tall!

Tall and slender. And there is still quite a way to go.

This building does look very thin at that angle, which gives the illusion of it being taller than it is
