    Nice shots! *With springtime approaching, I think its time to get out and get more construction photos.

    Nice pics.

    I'm disappointed with the tower facade glass on AOL so far.

    I hear ya, Garcia.

    IMHO it should be a much lighter shade of blue; at certain angles and in certain light the glass even looks black.

    Bloody Lovely Photos!

    The Times Square Tower looks especially good from street level
    rising above the Times Building. *Nice and tall and thin.

    Gulcrapek, we're of like mind. I walked around the neighborhood yesterday taking construction photos as well. Except for AOL, I don't think we have any of the same sites! I've not posted mine yet. That "One Photo" posting was my tease. I haven't had a chance to go through all the photos yet. Thanks for sharing.

    chris I think everyone was of that mind. Yesterday was gorgeous, it was a hint at spring. Perfect. Great pictures, Ghoul.

    It's good to see that the cladding of the Bloomberg Tower is being installed.

    I like the canyon-like impression at Times Square.
    I'd like to be there during a thunderstorm.

    Wow...Wiseguy205...those last 3 photos are terrific!

    I, too, am pleasantly surprised w/ how nice the glass facade is looking! *Child's SOM, as usual, makes a plain glass tower look much better just w/ great facade treatment. *This is one of those rare occasions where the reality is better than the rendering.

    I love the Nissin "Cup of Noodles" billboard in Photo 1...

    too big...you cant be serious.

    TXSQ is a tremendous addition to the cityscape of Times Square. It captures the energy with each face and glass treatment.
