I want to see close ups of the top third - fifth of the building. Are there any special ornamentations or is it simple stuff we see nowadays to pass off as ornaments?

220 Central Park South and Central Park Tower - astonishing to see these two heroic building next to one another. They almost look as if they support each, while actually they're competing in height... and we already know which of them is going to win. While Vornado's 220 Central Park South, designed by Robert Stern, has already topped out at 953 feet, Extel's Central Park Tower, designed by Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill, will continue to grow until it reaches the terrific 1,550 feet in height.

It's a very handsome tower, but I stop short of calling it beautiful not because of quality of material or proportion but because it lacks the vertically it should have, and this is primarily due to the lack of strong vertical banding and a lack of window uniformity that prevents the kind of monolithicality (sp?) that one would see and expect from a Deco era tower. An example of it is shown on that last photo of the east/west side windows. It's a perfect example of function over form, but in this instance I'm convinced it could have been better.

^ I might have mentioned it before someplace else, but the offsetting windows might not necessarily be strictly a response to function (apt layouts in the building). Stern has stated in an interview or two he likes having the offsetting windows, I believe this was in discussing 99 Church.

Looking good. I still think that the less noticed 520 Park Avenue is the true showstopper of towers in this style. It doesn’t get photographed here as much or get as much play and attention. But it is stunning.

^^^^

Its incorporation into the urban fabric is excellent. It really looks like it has been there for like 50 years. Kinda goes to the concept that architecture at times attempts to intertwine some elements of the existing neighborhood into the design. Its all part of the design attributes. For example, building a mid rise in SoHo, a good design will take elements of nearby structures, and incorporate it into it. So you can have 21st Century project look similar to one built in the 1930's, with a touch of the present.

Try that in the Flatiron district.

I wish Stern would design some spires. This would look great with a spire like 70 Pine Street.
