They used them in the early 20th century (see: Empire State Building).

True but they also have a lot more modern equipment today which should speed things up but hasn't.

I was able to take a few photos yesterday from an angle that hasn't been shown here before: from the roof of the Sheffield, on 57th between 8th and 9th. You can see that One57 and Carnegie Hall Tower are essentially the same height.

Ya, One57 really towers over the older structures lining the park. The views are going to be insane. Central Park looks like a painting from up at that height (I was 50 floors up when taking the photos). It is just beautiful.

Thanks for the pictures! I can't wait for the glass to get higher. This tower is looking better and better.

My God, what amazing shot. You picked a great angle to have a better sense of the size of this building. Thanks!

Great perspective, diablo1 - on first sight, one could imagine a Carnegie Tower twin to come (great to know One57 will be much more).

As for the height, the Oties plan posted last Dec, 7th gives 740 feet = 225,5 meters for the top of floor 58, and that would confirm 229-230 meters for the built 59th floor.

Great photos Dino! They must have been taken around the same time as mine, since the height of One57 relative to Carnegie Hall Tower is about the same...
