I sent them an e-mail asking if I could pitch a tent on one of the open mechanical floors. Sadly, I have yet to get a reply.

And as for sleekness or lack thereof as you suggest, I suggest you look at that tower's east/west profile...
The General Motors Building and RCA Building aren't the same building...

I should have been specific, sorry. I meant the back to back row of brutalist buildings on 6th avenue are just as ugly as the GM building. You cannot compare it to 432, you just can't.

He quoted Eveningsong who mentioned the GM building.

That is only slightly larger than my walk-in closet. Yes, it is a huge walk-in closet but still. Of course, the trade-off is that the walk-in closet is in Indiana with the corn and soybean fields and not midtown Manhattan.

Yep, it's just another level.

On topic, the tower looks already freakishly tall. Can't imagine it still has 200 feet to go ...

Compare the progress between July 13 and July 20, from the same vantage point in Queens. The second video has higher quality due to better weather conditions, meaning that I had to tinker with edits and contrast settings to a lesser extent.

And there are no such units for sale at 432 Park.

The tiny studios selling for $1.6 million and up are maid's quarters, in the building basement. You can't buy them unless already own a unit in the tower itself.

The cheapest unit in the building right now is $18.25 million.

ill need to track down the diagram, but pretty sure the maids quarters are not in the basement. they are on one of the lower levels though.
