Who knows. It could be a portion of the deck.

I don't know, it's pretty clear in the pic above they are on the angled top now and it's being built beam by beam. There are no other floors above this point and the angle behind the crane is clearly the part of the top. Maybe that is the deck.

Fine shots as always...But won't "Judge and Giancarlo"--a.k.a. Spiral and 50HY or vice versa--block that shot at some vantage point from that area?

Great shots … practically a city within … and there still so much more to come.

Its the skyscraper city. The gold standard. Its also why the Marvel superheroes chose to build their HQ here.

I still think Steinway, when finished, should be used in a Marvel films (in the future). Its the perfect villain lair, especially the top unit (next to the crown). Just picture a stormy, dark scene. Lighting in the distance. The sound of rain hitting the ground, as the camera pans towards the top unit, zooming in, all the while some ominous sound track from Hans Zimmer is playing the background. As you get closer to the crown, a loud, roar of thunder can be heard. The camera than shows a scene with Gale Brewer, scribbling some diabolical down-zoning plan for the UES.

New York’s gargantuan development is shifting its centre westward
The east side has plans to wrest it back





Mar 8th 2018


Quote:
THE far west side of Manhattan’s midtown is a hive of activity. Lorries buzz in and out ferrying materials, cranes dot the skyline. Construction workers in hard hats shout instructions at each other and exchange cheerful gibes. Each week the cityscape changes as new high-rises get taller. New Yorkers, who once had little reason to go to the parcel of land called Hudson Yards, are starting to see a new glossy neighbourhood emerge.

For decades this part of Manhattan was not just on the wrong side of the tracks, it was the tracks.

Quote:
The area stretching from 30th to 41st Street and from 8th to 11th Avenues had been zoned for manufacturing, which has all but disappeared from Manhattan. A failed Olympic bid served as a catalyst for development for Mr Bloomberg, who worried about white-collar jobs migrating to New Jersey. He persuaded the city to pay for an extension of a subway line, the first expansion of the transport system in three decades.

...The result is Hudson Yards, the largest private property development by square footage in America’s history. The 28-acre (11-hectare) site will be complete by 2025. By then, 125,000 people will work, visit or live in Hudson Yards, which includes five office high-rises, eight residential buildings and a retail complex with 100 shops and restaurants. The new district will have more office space than Palo Alto, California. One of the new towers will have an observation deck higher than the Empire State Building. A public school is in the works, as well as 14 acres of public open space.

Quote:
That means leaving behind thousands of square metres of empty floor space in Midtown East, once the most coveted site for offices and still the city’s most expensive commercial space. More than 300 of the 400 buildings in the district were built before 1961. Their average age is 73.

Quote:
The 73-block area got a boost last summer when the city council agreed to a re-zoning plan, allowing the development of 6.5m square feet of new office space. After considering moving to Hudson Yards, JPMorgan Chase, America’s biggest bank, announced last month that it had decided to stay on the east side. It intends to demolish its 60-year old home and build a new 70-storey high-rise on Park Avenue. Other plans are sure to follow, but it will take time to build out the area, perhaps as long as two decades.

...Manhattan once had two main business districts, says Keith DeCoster of Savills Studley, a brokerage. Midtown East competed with the city’s financial district for decades. Now, including Hudson Yards and the Flatiron district, it has four.

What does this train service? Why does it need 2 engines for only 2 carriages? Or is it just relocating?
