Off topic, but 56 Leonard will rise just in front of the taller brick building on the right of the photo.

It is. Interestingly, in this pic it looks like one 57 is built in a rural area, only one small block is visible. No other skyscraper at all.

Not that It looks the same, but this amazing project kinda reminds me of Aura, in Toronto (243m, U/C)



kinda like Aura's bigger brother! haha.

the tops look similar though..

One-57:


Aura:


cant wait till the crane gets out of the way and construction can resume!!! great addition to NYC!

PS. funny how both towers are primarily residential AND theyre both U/C.. AND they look similar in some ways... AND theyre in the same hemisphere... ANDD theyre on the same planet too! woah!

Nobody knows. My guess is it'll be at least a month, but that is just my guess

In the picture at the top of this page, do I see graffiti? Top concrete level, then also near the dangling crane arm.

Those graffitis are made by workers, they often write the name of their children, wife, etc. Name printed for ever on a supertall (at least, 'til the demolition of the building), that's great.

For instance, on this page you can see a lot of letters if you look carefully:

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...76476&page=227

(On the north side, you could before clearly read "Emma")


Edit:

Found it: On the right, you can read "Happy birthday" I think.
