Will the entire building be taken apart, dismantled...or will there be a partial implosion? What is the estimated completion of the demo?

They'll be dismantling it floor by floor, implosions in this area could be extremely dangerous. They could be done in a year

Has there ever been an implosion of a building in New York? I know there was an old bridge that was imploded to make way for a new bridge.

^ I remember the implosion of a couple of gas tanks not long before 9/11, which is what my eyes initially thought I was seeing that day.

I wouldn't mind it staying to contrast with the coming giant, but it's one of the sites targeted for potential redevelopment.

It's been illegal for decades. Buildings need to be taken down manually.

Here's that tank implosion from 2001. I think there was a building in a housing project (1 building) in Brooklyn or the Rockaways that had to come down that way for specific reasons, but don't recall exactly. You won't see any skyscrapers being imploded in the city though.

I don't think much explanation is needed as to why a 700+ ft /50+ story tower in the middle of Midtown Manhattan shouldn't be imploded.

It would be horribly dangerous to say the least, and just imagine if it didn't go as planned. Imagine the dust/debris and everything else even if it did.

Not to mention the pure optics of it.

Yeah, after 9/11, nobody in NYC wants to see a skyscraper go like that, I suspect.
