Great shots, Radley! I'm guessing those are from the top of The Manhattan?

Thank you and yes, those are from the top of the Manhattan. I believe that I was around 28 floors up. I got a few more shots, but they were quite blurry. Those were the 3 that turned out the best.



I also made this pano, though it isn't the greatest. The building makes for a rather nice vantage point.

You care to provide thoughts/comments/neighbor's thoughts on Aqua blocking views....
This is an example of how and why I think Aqua will enhance my view. When Aqua is finish, my view will be surrounded by highrises, giving me a TOTALLY DENSE feeling. This is one thing that aids to a big city atmosphere.

Lol. My bedroom is actually from West Elm in Atlantic Station. My living room, which is pretty cool is from Space. Space is on Peachtree in Midtown. Checkout both stores, they are really cool.

Yeah, I picked that up from some eclectic store in Chicago about 5 years ago.

I think the crane is at it's maximum height so I think the crane is about where the roof will be.

Well, it's currently at level 13, and it will have 24 when completed. So...I'd say it's got another 11 floors to go. Imagine one-and-a-half of the residential portion already built being added to the top. I'd say just under the height of the crane would be a good bet. This thing has risen really fast - every time I walk by it seems like another floor has been added.

Great shot, Joe.
