I'm definitely going to do that FlyNYon tour. Your pic set convinced me that it might be the best $500 for 30 minutes one can spend. The question is... day time or night time.

I'm thinking September. Or sometime in Fall. I hate summer heat and last thing I'd need is poor visibility due to humidity.

On a side note, can't help but notice how much room Javits takes up. Would be nice if they build atop of it. Tons of potential. They are renovating/expanding it, but there is so much sq-footage that should be vertical.

Awesome!! I'd definitely do it in the day so you can see everything and go in early November so you can catch Fall Foliage from the air. If you take pics with your phone at night they might not turn up so good due to the low light (if you're doing it with a phone, it will be attached to your harness)

Only thing to put on top of Javits should be Madison Square Garden ...

Agreed! MSG could easily move there someday down the line, it's a hideous eyesore on top of penn and it needs to go. If Javitz were to move to Sunnyside, it would be no problem to move MSG there someday.

My only wish is that there was some sort of lighting effect on the crown at night. It would stand out more and look so good on the skyline with the Hudson yards as a backdrop.

I walked by this when in New York the other week. I really like this building. More than most or all of the Hudson Yards towers. The glass is high quality, and the base is striking. It's stunning in its simplicity. It reminds me of the original glass buildings when all glass or glass predominant towers first started to rise to prominence. Before they became so tired and architects started adding tons of bells and whistles to try to make them interesting and give some texture.

Under Construction: One Manhattan West’s Lobby


Quote:
Brookfield Properties’ One Manhattan West has always been an incredible piece of engineering, with its massive, steel superstructure cantilevering over active train tracks and dominating half a block on Ninth Avenue across the street from Penn Station. The lobby of the 67-story, 2.1-million-square-foot office tower is no different: a monumental tribute to the power of massive corporate tenants and landlords, but featuring an understated, elegant design.

Since most of the lobby hangs over the tracks, its walls transition from perfectly straight to dramatically sloped, meeting the 46-foot-high ceiling at a 45-degree angle. The last 20 feet of the floor on the south side of the lobby are hanging over the train tracks, said Sabrina Kanner, Brookfield’s head of design and construction.

“If you were to follow the line of the building and take that straight down to the railroad tracks, we’d be in the worst possible throat of the Amtrak,” Kanner explained. “With the strength of the bedrock we have here —it’s 60-ton Manhattan schist — we built a very strong core, brought all the loads back into the core and cantilevered the floor out, which is why we’re able to have this column-free space.”

The entire facade is wrapped in floor-to-ceiling glass, but the interior sloped walls of the lobby are clad in 400 tons of white travertine marble, transported by boat from an Italian quarry. The stoneworkers had to buy three CNC machines — computerized milling machines run on the same technology used by 3D printers — in order to carve the shape of the four-story-high walls and line up the veins in the marble, according to Kanner. The marble also continues into the elevator lobby, which looks like a long, horizontal chute carved out of the middle of the building’s core.

The side walls are partially covered in a warm wood, and the floors are made of a shiny black Canadian stone. The southern, retail portion of the lobby is still under construction, but it will eventually connect to an outdoor courtyard and the adjacent, 17-story 5 Manhattan West. The two buildings will share 240,000 square feet of retail, including a Whole Foods, a Peloton store, and a three-level food concept from Danny Meyer.

Glass as smooth as a baby's butt. Wonderful looking facade.

Brookfield to launch massive entertainment venue at Manhattan West

Quote:
Move over, Vessel — Brookfield’s Manhattan West, which is taking shape just east of Related’s Hudson Yards, has signed its own cool venue to entertain office workers, residents and tourists.

But it will be horizontal, not vertical.

Brookfield has lured Elemental, a hospitality and “experience design” firm, to launch a 10,000 square-foot entertainment and dining venue at the 8-acre Manhattan West site, The Post has learned.

Led by a multi-disciplinary team from the hospitality and design worlds, it will include an eating/drinking venue and an intimate theater for what are described only as “innovative musical experiences,” “elegant magic” and “immersive” events. It will open in early 2021 on the north side of the public plaza in the heart of the complex.


“We will be combining immersive entertainment technologies of the 21st century with the elegant designs of old New York variety theaters,” said Elemental partner Warren Adcock. Also on board are Brooklyn Bowl co-founder Charles Ryan and Lilia restaurant partner Josh Cohen.

The six-building, 7-million-square-foot Manhattan West, bounded by Ninth and 10th avenues and West 31st and 33rd streets, has been overshadowed by Hudson Yards.

But it’s at last coming into focus. A plywood fence around most of the complex is coming down piece by piece, revealing some of what’s already up and under construction.
