If the SSP diagrams are any correct, it says the setback we have just reached lies somewhere at 340 meters, so about a little more than 1115 feet now.

How are folks posting Instagram-hosted photos? Is there a trick? I’ve tried it and they do not show up.

maybe a stupid question, but is this the final color of the glass, or is it some temporary or protective cover. Just because that blue is very harsh as of now, and the renderings dont loo nearly as harsh

Great pics and video as always. I love seeing the skyline from the rockaways perspective. What type of camera is being used?

Look on the lower level of the tower with the covering removed, you get an idea of what the tower will look like...
