It's crazy to think that the top of 225 W 57th wouldn't even be visible in that photo. Great photo, they're making good progress with cladding on this.

In the last picture, you can see how the pattern on the side gives the building a rounded appearance.

It does, but you need to look at it from some distance to notice this.

How is the crane doing, it should be on the other side of the tower, I guess.

I don't have any updates on the crane because from that vantage point I can't see it.

In the last picture those two twin towers to the right look very tall. Are they supertalls?

Nope, they're 229 meters or 751 feet tall

We've got so many pictures of the New York skyline lately (not only in this thread), but there seem to be no pics which show the crane (or the rests of it). Can anyone post a recent shot or has anyone passed the building lately and can tell about the crane's status? I'd love to see or at least know if there is already progress..

Looks like the main part of the crane has already been removed
