The tower is probably the best thing since the Chrysler that NY has put up.

I didn't realize that the middle tallest portion will have a color change as well. Very cool.

That change of color will be as iconic for the city as Lady Liberty's torch or the Chrysler's chrome in the years to come.

So, if the Hudson-side's setback apex transitions to gold and main apex goes to silver, will we see the opposite effect on the East River side?

It's still hard to tell.

What exactly is that tiny projection on top of the setback in the last pic?

I noticed the right side does not have a crown peak. I assume it is because the crane to complete the top crown is in the way and they will get to the right crown. It better not be a case of value enginnering...I guess we will find out later this month or Aug once the top crown is done.

Why would you/one think VA'ing would come into play now, especially since:

A. This epic monument is 99.5% done

and

B. On the astronomical off-chance that your observation is correct, imagine M. Nouvel's reaction when such tidings are brought to him.

Can you say "myocardial infarction'?
