NEW YORK | Central Park Tower (217 W 57th St.) | 1,550 FT | 131 FLOORS


5 floors to pass 1 WTC’s roof


Everything above 1WTC roof is going to be icing on the cake.






Such a cool shot. The east west view from the park now is just as epic as the north south view from the rivers.



Wowzers your new camera is a welcome addition! :clap:

It’s slowly closing in on 1WTC and 432. These are exciting times.


The 1400’ mark will be exciting. We’ll be in untouched territory for NYC.


Truly! I gotta take some pictures eventually since I think this will be popping up in new places.

Great vantage point; that crop of glass towers at Hudson Yards looks great from distance. I need to get off this island more often because, as the saying goes, one can not see the forest-through-the-trees.

I like the juxtaposition of the blue glass on the towers and the blue shimmer on the waters surface on the Hudson River.


Union City is a great place to get the view. There is a nice park (Hamilton) on JFK Blvd in Union City, on the cliffs where you can get a great view of HY or Midtown for that matter.


Is that the place where Hamilton was shot dead in a gunfight duel with Aaron Burr: I recall reading that somewhere. I would like to visit that park; for the historic event, and the vies of NYC high rise architecture.


That park is great. You can even see on Streetview what a great vista you see, but def if you have tourists driving into NJ, turn off into Weehawken after the helix and you can get to that park in like 3 min:

This pic must be a couple years old:
