Central Park Tower

This is my second post in a series of posts about the tallest buildings in NYC, the first post in this series was Tower One World Trade Center

This post is of the Second Tallest building in the city, Central Park Tower, which is still under construction and will open next year, but they have topped out the building so it makes the list as the second tallest

Central Park Tower is a mixed-use supertall skyscraper along Billionaires Row on 57th Street, The building rises 1,550 feet (472 m) and is the second-tallest skyscraper in the United States and the Western Hemisphere, the 15th tallest building in the world, the tallest residential building in the world,

Getting clear shots of these buildings is a challenge with all the other tall buildings in the city

This next shot is taken in Central Park, which gives a better idea of how tall it is, now I have built and climbed a few telecommunications towers over the years, but thats only up to 300 feet high, I can't imagine what it must be like working on a building that tall

When it see it like this it looks so small and narrow. I wonder how many square feet each of the floors is going to be. Probably much more significant than the pictures make it look!

Wait till I get further down the list there is one that makes this look big in Sq Feet per floor.
But I found online the building had a total 50.000 square feet of amenities on floors eight to 12 and onthe 16th floor a 63 meter indoor pool

It has been difficult for me to decide which is the best shot, and I have stayed with the second one, to enjoy the sky, the trees and the square. I think there are the necessary elements to feel comfortable.
