    These areas do not need direct access, when they are served by other lines. For access to Manhattan from Greenpoint, board the G at either Greenpoint or Nassau Street stations, and transfer to the L at Lorimer Street.

    The way I see it, Manhattan's east side is in more need of a subway line than any of the other boroughs.

    Not to start a huge off topic debate but large portions of the outer boroughs require bus trips to get to a subway line and yes, I like the idea of the Second Avenue line.

    I do believe Brooklyn is growing at a much faster rate than Manhattan. The L line is already at maximum bursting capacity and they've already upgraded the signalling system. Greenpoint would be the ideal destination for a crosstown 34th street line

    The horizontal bands ruins it for me.

    Why can't these developers build something that...when you look at it, you're like...wow, that's really nice, build it?

    Kind of like the excitement the Tower Verre brought us. This just doesn't do it and to lose those two very classy buildings in the process just hurts.

    I agree. The future is impending on our vision of the past.

    No point in designing a building if you're going to keep changing it. But hey, at least it'll stand out like they wanted it to...
    1,514 feet...

    Wow. This will be a great tower.

    This one will really change the iconic view of Midtown from the south. Moreso I think than 432 Park did.

    I like the height, but we've seen this design before

    The communications antenna atop the Empire State Building has been getting a lot of attention, lately. According to CTBUH it's not officially part of the building, yet its constantly looked upon as a final height.

    The big antenna was added in 1951.

    From the southeast (Williamsburg) 432 has a major impact. In point of fact, if all the buildings planned or under construction actually get completed, the Manhattan skyline is going to be much different than it was 10 years ago.

    The massing on top looks clumsy and the base looks like it's going to swallow GCT in its glassy maws. The base doesn't have to be so bizarre to be beautiful. This tower could be great with some tweaking but right now it does not merit a position near the Chrysler or GCT.
