I don't think temps would be THAT extreme several hundred feet up, right? Perhaps if they were building monolith towers thousands of feet tall, perhaps, but I'm curious if proper caretakers who ensured the trees would be well-fed and secured could make this happen!


Imagine traveling back in time to, say, 1905 or 1910, and then going up to New Yorkers and showing them that photo.
If I could even go back 20-30 years and show my younger self a photo from 2019, it'd be THE coolest thing ever!! I'd probably ask myself if flying cars and robots also existed or if we could live on the moon yet! Hudson Yards totally looks like something my younger self would've dreamt about and drawn (I used to love drawing futuristic cities and cars)!

FOUR tower cranes?!? It is a race between this one and 50, and the prize is tens of millions of dollars in leases. God bless the free market. What a time to be alive!

Two towers of more than 1,000 ft rise simultaneously, but that's not enough excitement for ya? :shrug:

3 Hudson will lag, but all of those cranes going up will still be worth watching.

Massive footprint. One of the biggies.

We're getting to the stage of construction where people will finally begin to realize that there's a lot going on over there. In some ways, just beginning.
