    One of the best, definitely. They need to get that lighting installed on the fins on the roof. Wasn't that the plan?

    I just walked by the NY Times and saw that there is a new Wolfgang Steakhouse taking the space of Montenapo which has been sitting vacant for a year. This might work better since he is a very popular chef.

    Wasnt sure about it during renders, but looking at it from all sorts of angles around the city and noticing, up close and afar, how remarkably well it blends into the cityscape, skyline and texture (despite the fact that it is perhaps a little too dark at night).... this is and should be a first ballot Hall of Famer. Hopefully, like all the other NYC classics, this one ages like a fine wine.
    It certainly bears that NYC elegance....

    In my mind I said this before the top of the tower seems so un-finished. What is the purpose of the crew-cut like top of this tower? I am not talking about the spire but the steel that takes it over 800 feet.

    It looked purrrdy in renderings:



    It comes from the time when "transparency" was the buzzword and everyone was trying to dematerialize their buildings through the copious use of glass. Sometimes I like the top and sometimes it looks like a hot mess...depends on what angle you're seeing it from.
