    This will make that central park skyline look amazing.

    Or it might look like a big shiny vacuum cleaner rising above the classic limestone beauties along CPS ...

    It is kind of ironic that this tower just happens to be located directly in front of / blocking the views of / what were already three of the tallest residential towers in all of NYC: CitySpire, Carnegie Hall Tower and Metropolitan Tower. Did that happen on purpose? How pissed off are all of those people right now? Did their property values plummet? (Not that I'm shedding a tear over any of this. If they're that pissed off about the views they should just relocate to One57.)

    What I find interesting is we are seeing the start of a tall midblock corridor being formed.

    It's the history of NYC. The more money you got, the better the view...

    I was seeing all these listings around for units at Metropolitan Tower.
    Carnegie Hall Tower is offices by the way. Seems unthinkable any developer would build an office tower so thin nowadays.

    Seriously?

    The view of the park is that important?

    I know it is something nice to have but still...

    Seems like Metropolitan Tower is already very beneficially angled away from One57, almost trying to peek around it to continue to catch glimpses of the park. On the other hand, is anyone here interested in Feng Shui? If so, what do you think about the tremendous poison arrow aimed at One57, arguably one of the strongest poison arrows generated by any building on Earth? If you believe in that stuff, that's some serious Sha Chi generation right there. I've always found that it's uncanny how One Madison Park's misfortunes coincide with the supposed negative energy, Sha Chi, that is generated from Madison Avenue. Supposedly, buildings at a terminus of a street receive tons of that negative energy, and the bigger/busier the street, the more Sha Chi the building receives. Given the collossal congestion on Madison Ave (compared to your average dead end, t-junction or cul-de-sac), it is hardly surprising.

    So long as One57 doesn't generate Fung Wah, I'm ok with it.
