This building is outstanding but the thing I marvel at the most ... is the nearly 900ft tall scaffolding.

No that's just a staging platform.

yes the scaffolding will be fondly remembered as truly epic — it will be hard to best!

It is a damn shame they chopped this one down. With all of the 1200'+ construction going on this deserves to be the crown jewel of Midtown. Especially its position in the skyline. I guess it was just before its time...

53W53 reaches new heights. Last month, we placed the final piece of steel on the building, completing 53W53's topping out.

A little older, but stunning photos of 53w53 as it relates to the rest of the skyline. A star among stars...

That last shot is a very unique angle. I don't recognize most of the foreground buildings.
