Indeed. Always thought it would, but it's nice to see One57 turning out just stunning. The design, the height, the quality of the construction materials, the way it harmonizes with the surrounding skyline, all combine to make this building a modern masterpiece.

Picture taken from the top of the Metropolitan museum of Art in August when I was visiting NYC




And this one is from behind biggest lake in Central Park:



I'm glad I could see that, but with 3 other towers planned here that would be just totally stunning view... Just another reason to revisit this great city

Yeah, a plateau has definitely built up from that viewpoint. This tower is the first to break it.

Wow, take a look at 432 Park in Desertpunk's night photo. You can really see the hugeness of those windows, with all that light blasting out. Obviously that's just construction lighting, but you get a sense that that building is really going to glow. One57's reign in the neighborhood is not long for this world.

I probably will love One57 even more when its tall and supertall neighbors fully sprout up and that area will just be breathtaking. It's top already seems poised to become a beloved iconic beacon.

Anyone else get a slight top of the Chrysler when they see One57?

Absolutely beautiful.

Beautiful tower. I envy anyone who purchased penthouses there. Hope they're kind enough to post the pictures of their views on here.
