Man, why are they taking sooooo long on these crown lights? It been like 2 months since they succeeded the first crown light on one side. What about the rest? Nothing? Probably they don’t care. :???:

Yes, probably after all the time and money they put into this building, they finally just threw up their hands and said “I don’t care!” all of a sudden.

Those shots with the angled edge lit up by the sun are awesome! I wish that feature was a little more prominent when it isn’t lit up this way.

^ Seeing such a tall building at the end of the street is awesome too. I will be in NYC this fall to witness it in person!

Both CPT and 30 Hudson have that feature.

Maybe the full crown will be lit by then. But I can't help but feel it would have been a better attraction from the Times Square point of view if the entire facade were illuminated TS style.


Anyway, some of the listings offer us an idea of the views from above. Needless to say, they are great.

This thing is gorgeous, i don't care about the hate it gets, i think its amazing. If it was a tad wider that'd be cool but its all good

Drcastro Jun 30, 2021 4:45 AM

I think it will look really nice at night, but is lacking in any interesting details in daytime, at least from a distance.

I have also made this remark more than once. The design lacks interesting contrasts during the daytime, but when the crown and different windows light up at night, the heterogeneous lighting pattern provides some much-needed contrast.
