    Emporis is getting Asian-city bias lately in my opinion.

    Wasted opportunity.

    There are usually a pair of security guards on each side. One of the most uninviting open spaces you will find in Midtown.

    Also what is the deal with the lift truck (pictured as the orange machine) that has been parked in that driveway for the last few months?

    I agree that that driveway is a completely wasted oppertunity and is very sterile -- and windy adding to a very disturbing atmosphere.

    Any renderings of what the spire on Bloomberg Tower will look like? (Hoping that the thing now seen on top is merely a crane or something like.)

    I think it's 806, 863' is the roof height from sea level, that's what emporis claims. But no one really knows for sure, I don't know and I don't care, it's a nice building regardless of the 50 foot mystery barrier.

    What sea level? lol, the Pacific's? Manhattan is is like 3 feet above sea level, isn't it? Or whatever but surely not 60 feet. Jeez, we're in the 21st century and they don't even know how tall it is?

    Street level at Bloomberg tower is 50 feet above sea level.

    Is the 3rd Avenue side of Bloomingdales being renovated? It needs it. That building is a dump.

    They've been talking about that for years -- also renovating the side that faces Bloomberg.

    Now they almost have no choice but to do a renovation. When it was Alexanders across the street (which looked like crap, too) it didn't make that much difference. Or at least back then Bloomies didn't stick out like the sorry sister she is now.
