    I'm really in awe at the things that actually are getting built in this economic climate. This is an awesome project. Makes me happy.

    425 is hideously ugly. This one looks really nice though, although completion in 2009 can't really be realistic, can it?

    Interesting how it stands out b/c no one lives there. Must be a depressing place to inhabit. It's basically a tangible private equity fund.

    Always seem ghostly. Except when it first opened and they had the spot/search lights. Also I wonder why Bryant Park is so bright? Fashion Week? LOL.

    You're referring to 425 Fifth? How did you come to this conclusion? It looks no different than the (very few) other residential bldgs in this pic.

    As for whether people live there for their first home, I have no idea, but I don't get how the pic would tell you this. It sold out years ago.

    Are you judging by the number of evening window lights? It's no different than that big residential to the left on Sixth Ave.

    You need to adjust the contrast on your computer.

    Bryant Park's Bright Lights = The Pond aka Ice Skating Rink

    Obviously that's not my basis for comparison.

    I agree 425 is significantly darker than the others though, maybe they're greener than everyone else. LOL The other culprit is One Beacon Court.

    Its hard to tell how many lights are on in the structure as the buildings facade is pretty bright in general.

    Judging that this is a recent picture and that virtually all the lights are on in the other (commercial) buildings. This shot was probably taken around 5pm when most people are still at work. Residential's in general don't have as many lights at night as commercial buildings because a large number of people are out of their apartments at any given time and when they are in them they usually have the lights on in one room at a time. I think the number of lights does look similar to the large residential building on 6th Avenue.
