Nice shot. The lighting on those early morning photos are really lovely. When we reach this point of completion; I begin to wonder about the ‘interior architectural designs’ that are beginning to take shape. Those photos, are obviously harder - if not impossible - to find.




Is the bean on its way? LOL, taking longer to assemble this bean that build the friggin’ tower


If it’s taking this long, do you think they’re not going to put it in. I would think it’d be in by now


I work nearby. Every time I’ve asked about the bean, I’m told by one of the doormen that is it supposed to be installed in a few months. Promises, promises. I have no idea what’s going. And I don’t know anyone who does.


Well I cannot find it now but Tribeca Citizen had a post months (now maybe even years ago haha) that included a comment from someone in the know about what it took to complete the bean including the shiny finish. Surprisingly complicated.


Correct. But you are right that the article was many moons ago and the installation time promised that piece has long since passed.
