I'd rather live in the 6-story building at lower left. :)

funny about that building, i saw a show on the science channel recently where dr. michio kaku was doing judo to demonstrate some point he was making and afterward he walked out of that little red door oishi judo studio and i was like "oh i know where you are michio!" lol.

Good to know that Staten Island accents are still going strong.

I'm so glad I don't live on a train that extends north of Manhattan...it was a crap show yesterday leaving work. Several people in my office had no way to get home, traffic looked to be a nightmare, every single train was delayed or canceled. My train wasn't even directly affected by the storm but as a result of the crush of people trying to find their way home took an extra 45 minutes to get home.

There was a picture making the rounds of a train that straight up rain over a full sized tree that had fallen onto the tracks. Things went from normal weather to severe in almost no time at all.

1. 80 South Street, 1,438ft (438m)
2. 666 5th Avenue, 1,400ft (427m)
3. Shvo Central Park Tower, 1,320ft+ (400m+)
4. 335 Madison Avenue, 1,320ft+ (400m+)
5. 151 East 60th Street, 1,240ft (378m)
6. 15 Penn Plaza, 1,216ft (371m) [Stale Proposal]
7. Two Manhattan West, 1,216ft (371m) *
8. 1 Park Lane, 1,210ft (369m)
9. 41 West 57th Street, 1,200ft+ (366m+)
10. 45 Broad Street, 1,127ft (344m) *
11. Hudson Yards Phase II Supertall, 1,100ft+ (335m+)
12. 520 West 41st Street, 1,100ft (335m) *

15. The Spiral, 1,005ft (306m)
16. 386 Flatbush Avenue, 1,000ft (305m)
17. 360 10th Avenue 1,000ft+ (305m+)
18. 237 Park Avenue, 1,000ft+ (305m+)
19. 341 Madison Avenue, 1,000ft+ (305m+)
20. 31 West 57th Street, 1,000ft+ (305m+)
21. Cetra Ruddy UES Tower, 1,000ft+ (305m+)
22. 1710 Broadway, 1,000ft+ (305m+)
23. 740 8th Avenue, 1,000ft+ (305m+)
24. 144 West 34th Street, 1,000ft+ (305m+)
25. 562-570 5th Ave, 1,000ft+ (305m+)
26. 989-993 6th Ave, 1,000ft+ (305m+)



This is the one I want built the most-and it seems stalled?

I like this one even better than Torre Verre.

I love the way it is blended in with the beautiful old bank building. And it is not just for the super wealthy-over 500 units.

I hope it gets built.

i dk what is going on with the downtown brooklyn dekalb tower. i know they are working on the bank building, at least a bit, but it seems delayed. surely it will be iconic.
