Wonderfully slim. I like it for being both this slender and plainly boxy. It turns out a stylish supertall, I find.

Not sure if this got posted... but it's from July 23: http://youtu.be/8G_5guwWfq0 (won't allow to embed)

It's tall, and has amazing views... but I can't help but KINDA agree with this random commenter: "432 Park looks like a grotesquely over-sized chimney, scarring the skyline. As an oasis for the very rich, in more ways than one it gives the middle finger to the rest of us."

Every skyscraper contributes to the skyline in its own way... But I just wonder about super-thin talls like this... Personally, I wouldn't feel safe until I studied the architecture and walked in it and could assure myself it was reasonably safe.

Edit: Yes, they're for the super rich... but it's still a feat of architecture! Even if it does look like a chimney. Here's the 57th St of the future:

1717 Broadway looks puny compared to the two other residential giants in this photo.

So true.

P.S. Why is someone editing their post when I write something. O.O
Also being a member for a really long time is SO important, right?

NYC headed for its highest point in global influence and economic might. The rich just happen to call it home.

You won't be happy until they build that 1,000 ft housing project, but that's probably not gonna happen.

On that same note, I see a few people complaining about more "towers for the rich", and yet not take into account the very small footprint these towers have on the city.
Who cares who lives up there? Would people really be happier if the penthouse units went for $5 to $10 million instead of $90 to $100? Would it be better if the top floor
were some office for a wealthy CEO getting ready for another multi-million bonus?

^^I'm not complaining. I was just pointing out that more ultra luxury towers will join the Midtown skyline to the unemployed poster a few posts back. If I did somehow have a problem, then I wouldn't have joined SPP, no?

*cough* ask to #6486 *cough*

I really do like 432's pale white color.

(copy and pasted) (not sure how to quote without photos again.)
Now if they went for 5 to 10 million, I would consider that a place on my house hunting trip! (my nose is suddenly getting longer..) Actually, everything is relative. I remember the price of a Cadillac (car) being in the 3k range. My Mom only paid $6000 for her house in West Philly (when I was a toddler back in the 50's.) Not the greatest neighborhood but still cheap. Five to Ten million is really almost average in today's terms of value. But I'd be happy with a couple of hundred thousand. So what if they're almost 100 million ? Someone obviously out there has that kind of money to spend, so be it. You only live once. More power to them.

Here is a closeup of the base on Park Avenue, first from across the street, then from right underneath the scaffolds. Taken yesterday:

Yes you are right. I want to take this tower for a nice meal, possibly a drink and then see where that goes. Lol. Bravo for capitalism and having an economy that attracts the 1% or any percent. No reason not to celebrate that fact. Please, no political replies. This is a good time to be a SSP fan. Planning my next trip as we speak! Still have hundreds of pics from last November (birthday trip) I never posted.

NY guy, that pic with the NYC fog, thank you for posting. That is my new background....
