For the last couple years, I have been working on a stop-motion video as 432 Park Avenue rises above the neighborhood (and now, 252 East 57th Street, too). Haven't posted an update in a while, and had some time to kill this morning....:

Here's a cell phone shot from yesterday afternoon (Sept 9). You can clearly see a 2 floor south-facing 'notch' about 1/3 of the way up:
