I can see how one might confuse two very tall and skinny buildings but I don’t get how anyone can conflate Park Avenue with Central Park. Cool photo though…

Cheers Thomas. I kept putting the tripod away only to have the sun peak thru around 5pm. I was cursing my good luck all the while I was taking these LOL

I remember seeing the renders for this and thinking the waves in the facade were just artistic liberty with shadows - trying to make the tower reminiscent of black and white Art Deco pictures. The fact that the waves are truly part of the facade is absolutely stunning.
This tower is an absolute masterpiece.
