I can't get past the dark cladding at the top. It's like the flat side and base on 8 Spruce Street, just awful and such a letdown.

Wow so you can open the windows, even from that height. But I still don't know how the curtains on the windows work, but it's awesome, I hope I'll be making that kind of money in the future.

I never understood why people prefer park views, if you could have a great view towards an amazing skyline on the other side. Of yourse those penthouse apartments have windows in both directions though, but if I had to chose one direction, I would always prefer the skyline view. Maybe because I am a skyscraper geek.

The park view has a much lower likelihood of ever being blocked, and Central Park is the biggest thing of nature in NYC. Central Park is amazing and I'd love to have that view of it. Also, if you're an artist it's good to have the northern light.

Because 1,000-Foot Towers Are a Dime a Dozen Here
http://nymag.com/news/articles/reaso.../2013/skyline/

Quote:
No matter how tall it gets, the New York skyline grows like a permanent adolescent. Nourished by fitful infusions of money, odd pieces shoot up in gangly disproportion, then nothing happens for a while, then the rest fills in. At each turn of the cycle, some New Yorkers wish it would just stop, while others prefer the way it was decades ago, before everything went to hell.

Thanks to complex technology and simple math (stronger concrete + astronomical land costs = megatowers), we’re in a growth spurt now, centered in lower Manhattan and a narrow belt of midtown. The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat recently decreed that One World Trade Center has a spire, not a mere antenna, and thus is the tallest in the Western Hemisphere. Across the plaza, the 978-foot Tower Four, by Fumihiko Maki, has just opened. In midtown, a platoon of apartment buildings that either brush or surpass 1,000 feet is falling into line: One57, designed by Christian de Portzamparc; 432 Park Avenue, by Rafael Viñoly; 107 West 57th, by SHoP Architects; 220 Central Park South, by Robert A.M. Stern; Nordstrom Tower, at 215 West 57th, by ultrahigh-rise virtuosos Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill; 53 West 53rd Street, by Jean Nouvel, once again primed to rise next to MoMA …

And that’s just for now. Hudson Yards will add to the list, and though the Bloomberg plan to rezone east midtown to allow more behemoths has stalled, something like it is likely to rumble back to life under Bill de Blasio. The Empire State Building will soon sink below a rising tide of rooftops. And Brooklyn has a new spiky profile of downtown offices and waterfront condos.

A surging skyline is a sign of a vigorous city, which does not mean it should be left untended. These towers are rising in areas where zoning caps square footage but not height. The De Blasio administration might consider a threshold—1,000 feet?—that would trigger a public review. Morally, the skyline belongs in the public weal, and architects and developers have an obligation to avoid screwing it up—a responsibility they often take pretty casually. It’s astonishing how quickly an ungainly tower can stake its claim, almost before the public has a chance to squawk. Even the Municipal Art Society, usually vigilant, got a late start trying to beat back hypertall midtown. A new MAS report points out that on a winter afternoon, nearly half of Central Park will be thrown into shadow. It’s enough to make a preservationist pray for another recession—or at least a few wise rules.
This author is known to hate One57 and all that it stands for.. The guy is allergic to Skyscrapers and is a noted Shadow fearer. I really don't know if he put this in the article to give DeBlasio's people ideas or what... but if DeBlasio ever did this he would handcuff this city forever.

Here is a piece from New York Mag featuring one of our own! cheers:

Because for All the NIMBYs, There’s at Least One YIMBY
http://nymag.com/news/articles/reaso...i-fedak-yimby/

Quote:
Nikolai Fedak’s favorite thing in the world is skyscrapers. The 23-year-old moved to New York five years ago from McLean, Virginia—a very nice place notably lacking in high-rises—to attend college, and two years ago, besotted with the city’s restless cranes, he started a fan site for megadevelopment, newyork*yimby.com, as in “yes in my backyard.” As in not “not in my backyard.” Its obsessive construction updates quickly made it a useful resource for keeping track of the transforming city. “One of my friends thought it was a Real Estate Board of New York plant because it’s so pro–real estate,” says Fedak. But he still has an opinion. “I don’t support new development that’s not aesthetically friendly or what I think the city should be,” he says. And for those who miss the old city as it’s steadily being supplanted by the new—“432 Park, One57, 217 West 57th, 111 West 57th, the Pyramid, 606 West 57th … I definitely love 57th Street,” Fedak rattles off—he has little sympathy. “If these people were around in the thirties, would we have the Empire State Building? Would we have the Chrysler Building?” Or what about earlier megadevelopments: “Grand Central? The old Penn Station, even?” he says. “You have to get over it. Go somewhere else. Don’t live in Manhattan!”

I agree with you! Also, the park is quite dark during the night which makes it more boring.
