Yeah, it's a big cluster there and at least those buildings in the foreground have a great view on Central Park. Now is One57 growing over them to get these views too.

I like how this tower complements the skyline in RobertWalpole's 2nd photo.

My first time I went to new York i couldn't even comprehend the amount of buildings! You expect it, but it's so much different then pictures! I can't wait to go again and see new additions to the skyline!!

I was the same way. I remember my first glimpse of Manhattan was from the Newark Amtrain Station. It made up for the 25 hours on the train . My favorite view was while crossing the Verrazano though. Manhattan was just a menacing wall of skyskrapers protecting its citizens like a shield.

4 hour drive to Atlanta + 3 hour train delay + 18 hour train ride = 25 hours. I didn't mean 25 hours from Newark .

I am next year hopefully . Trying to save enough money for a trip with my dad.

But the train was a great experience though. I saw almost the entire East Coast on my trip. We went through GA, SC, NC, VA, MD, DE, PA, NJ, and arrived in Penn Station, NY. Got to see several major cities up close and personal as well, such as Atlanta, Charlotte, DC, Baltimore, Wilmington, Philly, and NYC. And the train only cost like $60 round trip. I don't regret the train though. It was actually pretty comfortable, and there was a little restaurant in one car.

In this photo, One57 looks like part of the verizon bars going from tallest to shortest, along with Bloomberg Tower in the middle.

I never would have noticed that, but yeah, it does.
