[QUOTE=NYguy;8746079]That shadow doesn't show any valid complaint. If anything, it shows the ridiculous nature of it. What's covered in shadow? Trees. What makes the most shadow in the park? The trees.
The shadow from the skyscrapers moves across the park very quickly as the sun goes down. In another hour or so it would be in total darkness.




There is, of course, a difference between shadows and shade. It all depends on where you are at the moment and how self righteous you are about it.

To the man on the ground, there isn't. It was just a dumb argument, and that has only become clearer now that these towers are up.

Very nice collection of buildings peeking above the roadway east of the bridge tower. I count no less than nine. And how many in 2000 or even 2010? Beautiful!

The pencil tower phenomenon in NYC is both shocking from a skyline pov, and yet disconcerting. I always see NYC as a city with height.. and girth. Solid.

Glad ESB can be seen from some angles.

The ESB itself is very slender, depending on your angle of view. And the skyline itself is less of a skyline, and more of a "skymass" as it's lined with big and bulky 700 and 800 footers that dulled the classic skyline. And we will see more of that still, as towers like the Spiral, 3 Hudson, 50 Hudson, Chase, Tower Fifth, even the buildout of the WTC raises the base skyline even higher. But those classic skylines were defined by the slender skyscrapers that pushed upward in the city's ambition, where one tallest was replaced by the next. And that's how it should be. It's a city of densely packed skyscrapers, where even a 1,000 ft building can fade into the background. We don't really need overly bulky towers. Too much of that is the reason we need these towers pushing up. Central Park Tower could really have used tgat spire to distinguish it further, but it does stand above the base skyline.

Hopefully that proposed law on banning helicopter flights fails. Its a hell of a way to view the city.
