Dismantling the crane should be pretty straight forward from here; just take down all the segments.

Yes, my moniker is my street address and it is definitely Inwood. Surprised you are familiar with it.

You can actually see the skyscrapers with the naked eye better than those pictures indicate.

Across the Columbia University Sports Complex than.Nice, so you actually live in the northernmost building of Manhattan. Cool.

Yes, directly across from the football stadium. Its not the northenrmost building but is the northernmost residential building.

We now have world class architecture of our own on my street:

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/06/ar...anted=all&_r=0

It is simply stunning and I can't take my eyes off it when I go by. Saw the whole construction process everyday but never got around to taking pictures and starting up a thread on SSC.

I compensate by making sure we have pictures of One57 and 432 Park.

Interesting vantage point of One57 from one of the terraces of the Pierre's triplex unit at the top:

Those Images above are incredible!
Here is an image I took a week ago today. Unfortunately, it is nowhere near the same quality...

Ok, I'm probably the only one here who doesn't like this at all, but nevermind. I don't think the shape is too bad (I don't get the specialty of the rounded off roof, though) but the cladding with those blue stripes make the building look really unappealing. The different coloured cladding panels on the other side of the building contribute even more to that. Maybe if the cladding would have been something like at 4WTC, I wouldn't dislike it, but right now it looks messy.

But if I had to say a good thing about this building, it would be that it fits the skyline and contributes to its smooth look. 432 Park Ave on the other hand just looks weird and out of place.

Why people keep on insisting that 432 PA will look out of place? It's been said many times, but I'll say it once again: there are a couple of supertall towers in the nearby area which are either topped out / under construction or in the prep phase:

225W57thSt: ~500m, prep, likely to begin construction by the end of the year
432 PA: 426m, u/c
Tower Verre: 320m, prep, likely to begin construction by this summer
One57: 306m, u/c (topped out)
107W57thSt: ~300m, prep, height not final. construction to begin this year

And FYI, if you haven't noticed, One57 is neo Art - Deco (it's been discussed at length...).

I don't think it's out of place because of its design, but because of its shape. Almost all of the towers in the skyline are perfectly proportional to each other, just compare ESB and Chrysler to the Bank Of America tower for example. One57 isn't much smaller than the buildings around it nor is it much higher, it fits perfectly into the skyline without overly dominating, but standing out nonetheless.
However, in the case of 432 Park Ave, there isn't any other tower in the city with such a small shape in relation to such a big height. That's why I regard it as unfitting.

That will likely change. The entirety of West 57th Street is in play, not to mention new Midtown East upzoned towers. 45 E.60th St. will probably surmount the GM Building to the east and fill in the skyline. Another supertall at 138 E. 50th St. will also balance things out.
