Until the new super tall goes up on West 57th street after they demolish the supermarket. Then its view will be completely wiped out

When it comes to high rise views New York is a dog eat dog world

Awesome photo - thank you! It's funny, based on this photo, it doesn't look like you should be able to see One57 from the roof of the Sheffield... And yet you can, because I just did it last week!

Nice shot. btw, the casing of the right wing is now 1 floor behind. Probably the expected setback?

Great shot, notice the other two towers - 1715 Broadway and 250 W 55th St - U/C. Adding some density to an already superdense area...

Amazing how that area has changed in the past 25 years. There were no towers opposite One57, no Time Warner Center, no Hearst Tower, the green apartment tower between the Hearst Tower and TWC wasn't there - there really were next to no skyscrapers in that area to speak of. And now it keeps getting more dense!!

Thanks for sharing such a fantastic picture.

Of course the area has changed the past 25 years, I hope the next 25 years too.
Nice pics here.

I did not realize they would be that close by. Does 432 Park also fit in this pic?

No, that would be several blocks outside of this picture.

This image is perfect. Besides showing One57 shows 250 W 55 St, and Broadway 1715. I really wanted to see a different view of the two buildings being constructed. Apart from the excellent perspective that we now have the One57. Thanks for sharing! Amazing!

I wonder this condo seem so big and lots of people will be staying here especially rich people with car. But the building don't seem to be able to fit a basement parking. where does all the people have to park their cars? Sorry to ask as I'm not American.

For the most part they probably don't own cars. They would take taxis or black car services or limos. Driving around Manhattan is not a good idea and people with there kind of money generally don't do it.

Also, many likely have second homes outside NYC and would keep their cars there.

My experience is the opposite. The wealthy people are most likely to have cars, so they can drive to their second house in the Hamptons, weekend skiing in Vermont, etc. The very wealthiest people even have private drivers to drive them everywhere. Regular working guys like me are the ones with no car, who take a taxi, subway, or bus... Or just walk, if it's nice out like today!

Parking in Manhattan is incredibly expensive. If this building is being built with no garage, I would only expect parking rates in this area to go up even more. You can check here: http://nyc.bestparking.com/index.php Many garages in this area are already $600+ per month!

Here's another view, from the opposite side of midtown. You can see the whole CitySpire/Metropolitan Tower/Carnegie Hall Tower/One57 cluster, from the southeast.

Depends on what we define wealthy as but I doubt the people buying places here drive to the Hamptons. Most likely they take helicopters out there.

Good point... But how do they get to the helicopter pad??? Surely not in a common yellow taxi or black towncar!

EDIT: According to this news article, the building does have on-site parking. I guess the entrance must be on the 58th St side? None of the renderings of the front facade show a parking garage bay.
