Thanks Germantower. I have never used that service. Will do so when I get a chance and find out how much of my private information they need. I avoid those that ask for too much. Security risk, you know, with all these internet bandits around. (btw/ a bit of a German tower here too).

Still does and it probably always will. This tower is shaping up to be a disappointment. If this tower wasn't so tall very few would give it a second glance.

Thank you tallmark! Any word how they will remove it without having full access from above?

I will ask the construction workers when I pass by them on Tuesday. I am actually curious to learn how that platform is going to be removed without pieces falling down (on the old and glamorous art school below). But I suppose if they could build it without dropping anything down, they should also dismantle it in the same way.

When you do can you take some photos from that angle? Directly below. Cheers.

The only difference is that when they built the platform, they could use the crane from above to lift pieces in place, now they cant, with the building on top.

Wow, I didn't really expect how much CPT would soar above 220 CPS. It is a welcome surprise as I was afraid they would look all jumbled up and obstruct each other more.

They do from pretty much any other angle. But yes, it soars!

I did, yesterday. Posting them here. All from the bottom portions of CPT.

By the way, how many of you fellows knew there is a "6 1/2 Avenue" in Manhattan?? Look at the first photo with the street sign, and ponder :-)

The guy I spoke with was not very forthcoming on the issue, either didn't know or the old Soviet "I don't know anything" mentality was still lingering. However, the art building right below it is totally encased in a protective metal cage, including a sturdy awning on the top of it--presumably keeping it safe against falling debris from above. That is where the loading dock is located --below the cantilever portions of the tower and above the rooftop of the art school. Here are some photos

Does anyone know what is the story with this valuable plot of land on the 5th Avenue side of the 57th Str? It is at 29 W. 57.

It is already cleared and ready for construction--presumably for a supertall tower. These are the photos

Well, some savoir-faire savant provided the relevant link to the planned future of this spot. I copy it below
