I have always thought of it as a shard of topaz or another crystal. Very handsome design altogether. The color play at its top makes this building even more artful and suitable for its location next to MoMA

As long as we're fantasizing, how about 1,020 meters?

Though I'm not a fan of the gold flourish this is one of the best skyscrapers of the last decade.

The should just have built its original design, which I believe was some 360 meter.
Especialy its crown was much better then.

I hope every couple of years they clean the aluminium cladding to keep it shiny and looking new. Too few buildings bother to clean anything but the glass.

^I know, right? I remember seeing window washers at 1330 6th Avenue washing the building's aluminum (I think that's what it is) skin with wet cloths, and I was like "Yes! More buildings should do this!"

Hands down, one of the best recent additions to NYC. Like everyone else, I wish it was taller, so the impact to the skyline would be more pronounced.

the current base situation. MoMa is reopening next month, this tower might officially open then as well, but I can't confirm that.
