    I'll take your word for it, but from my apartment it looks pretty much the same.

    The extension on the North side is not "light glass." It is the same black. Something else would have broken up the mass and made for more interest IMHO.

    Too late for that. 42nd is nearly developed from river to river and Hell's Kitchen (NOT MiMo!) north of it, is zoned for buildings 14 stories or under.

    It looks like the residents' lobby is on the corner of 42nd and Dyer, and it is lit, painted, furnished and ready to open.
