    No worries. It'll still be there the next time.


    BTW, this will be the tallest cluster of buildings (this tower added to the Carnegie-Metropolitan-City Spire trio) in the city outside of the WTC.

    Carnegie Hall Tower, Cityspire, Metropolitan Tower, and One 57 remind me of the trees of the rainforest each tries to grow higher than the other to get that precious resource - the sun, in this case the sun is views of Central Park.

    Point of clarification: that first rendering is of 57th street, not CPS. The CPS (59th) streetscape won't be affected... Maybe you mean you don't like it on the CPS skyline?

    After 9 W 57th, what could possibly be out of bounds in that neck of the woods -er "rainforest"?

    January 19: The Carnegie Hall Tower is 757 ft, so it looks like One 57 is about 2/3 of it's final height.

    Very dramatic.

    Too bad more of the facade isn't like that.
