New York photo: skyline shooting up

newskyline

The skyline of Manhattan is about to change dramatically. This new pencil-thin tower — at 432 Park Avenue, looking south from Central Park at it — will be the tallest habitable building in New York when it’s finished this year. At 1,396 feet and 96 stories, it dwarfs the nearby Citicorp building… and also dwarfs the Empire State Building. It’s even taller than the new Freedom Tower in lower Manhattan, if you don’t count that structure’s (uninhabitable) roof mast.

More on this building and others like it in the planning stages at The New York Times.

    I’ve been meaning to post something pithy and funny here, but, honestly, I can’t. Sliver buildings and luxury housing you can see from Ohio are pretty much all that’s getting built in this burg now.
