    Default East Midtown 9/03 - construction and views

    First on the agenda: I apologize for the quality of some of these. With last month's thing and now I think there's something a little wrong with the camera. Not sure what.

    Now, the buildings...

    Bloomberg Tower - three concrete floors. On 58St, I was standing in front of Beacon Court and also watching the passersby. Nearly everyone who walked by looked up at the construction and into the court with interested looks on their faces. One woman went by with a few other people, looked in, and said "Weird!"

    From under the 59St Bridge


    Podium/East Wing


    58&Lexington - the facade seems to glow..


    Park Avenue Place - movin' on up.


    Grand Beekman - although it's been criticized a bit, I can't help but like it. Though the photo blurs the brick together, it's a nice job. You need to either be there or have a decent camera to appreciate it.



    One Sutton Place North, Tower One - Move in time.







    300 East 55th St - foundation work.



    Other things...

    Trump World Tower





    Time Warner Center, North Tower - accompanied by the new Human Taxi Service.



    570 Lexington Avenue - crown



    Ta ta.

    The Bloomberg Tower: probably one of the city's slowest construction projects ever.

    Regardless, one of the most worthwhile. But I wish that they had kept the floor count at 64, along with the hotel.

    I'm a fan of the Grand Beekman as well.

    The skin of this building will probably make the Bloomberg Tower one of the most recognizable buildings in NYC.
