Photos taken by me and congratulations to myself for figuring out how to put up images.
I didn't realize that the side of the building was that narrow.
It'll look very slender.

I can't believe this is moving so fast! I'm gonna melt when the cladding goes on.

If you look closely you can see right to the north east of the Woolworth Building.

NYC4Life, howd you get those pictures? Whenever I fly into Newark or JFK, they dont pass right over the city like in these pictures. I do believe flying this close to the city is against FFA regulations.

Apparently it's not. Planes fly directly over Manhattan all the time. I don't get it. You'd think they'd have changed that by now for obvious reasons.

Good thing NY doesn't build 2,000 footers.

It would be a crime to prevent airborne travelers from getting views like that on film.

Yea, last December I was flying into JFK from Chicago and we flew straight over Midtown/Times Square AT NIGHT. OMG it was a sight to see. All the sparkling lights were a great way to usher in Christmas vacation.

New York airspace should be more restricted than that.

Flying into LaGuardia gives you a grand tour of all five boroughs, starting with the Bronx and then down the Hudson along Manhattan, then over the bay and Staten Island, turning around over the ocean and flying over Brooklyn and landing in Queens.

That flight path can't deviate too much seeing as planes fly over my apt in Fort Greene every few minutes.
