All these blackout pics have such an “Escape from New York” vibe to them
From my bathroom.
The building is amazing. And so is the crane! Maintaining its stability so far from the structure is a remarkable achievement all by itself.
That crane is amazing, the top is not attached to the tower 100 feet above the concrete roof
That photo brings to mind something that puzzles me about many new condo high rise buildings that are putting in those ‘basin’ type tubs: they can only be used for soaking/lounging immersed in the tub. I never take a tub, nor do I know anyone who does: and this seems to me contrary to the urban lifestyle in general. I imaging all those tubs being used as catch bins for random clothing items: similar to what often happens with home spin bike or tread mills. The “idea” is appealing, but the reality of every day urban living leaves these type of things very much underutilized. Pardon my random comentary; but I am very puzzled by all those ‘basin-tubs’ being added to luxury condo apartments. Most will be meeting with a demo sledge hammer on the first renovation - or even the initial fit-out move in to the new residence.
I use my tub quite frequently.
Anyone with small children will use their tub on a daily basis. And women frequently use tubs.
Exactly. Anyone with a small child, anyone who expects to have a small child in the future, or anyone who expects to have small children visit, will definitely want a tub. And at the price points we’re talking about, it had better be a damn nice tub.
Even for people without small children, that fancy tub signals luxury. At the astronomical prices these condos sell for, it’s expected.
Seems like those tubs were a good feature to add as a built-in item at 432 Park: wonder if they will do the same here 111 West 57th. I don’t know, my guess is most bathrooms in this condo will have the traditional tub/shower combined. I don’t think ‘no tub’ is good in any circumstance - the ‘free standing’ single use tub does surprise me as a design choice: even in a luxury condo high rise.
Perfect picture that captures the evil lair of the super-villain in Gotham. 111 W 57th, worthy of a Marvel Comics location.
The opening scene of this movie should start off with something like that pic. Raining, lightning, the sound of a deafening crackle as the lighting breaks the sound barrier. Inside 111 W 57th, an evil laugh can be heard. Premeditation in the air.
Beams are up for the final block of the tower, above 1,380 feet now, next section will be above 1,400 feet then the next beams reach 1,428
