Countless documentaries are talking about Billionaires Row.
Just watch what happens when the entire stretch is finished.

And the next thing that will happen will involve a certain POS almost smack-dab in the middle of that last photo.

If I elaborate, I'll hafta drag out a large blunt instrument and the week-old carcass of a certain barnyard animal, if you catch my drift........

What does finished mean to you? There might be other tall ones getting started by the time the present 'under construction' ones wrap up. With enough cash floating around there's always room for growth.

Have you watched any of the documentary films on YouTube?
I never get tired of the numerous references to One57, 432 Park, 111 W. 57th, Central Park Tower & 53W53.

However; you have raised a valid point; this stretch of supertall slim towers could be the start of something much bigger in the years ahead.
