Jesus. The heavenly prewar magic of the "classic" New York skyline is definitely back. No more table tops.

And more still coming...

I would not say sped up, it's just remained normal/steady instead of being delayed or slowed down.

Love that last shot. Looks like the MetLife building is having a bad hair day.

Hogwash. They were walking like they were strolling in the park and they were starting from 49th St at the far northern edge of the station and exiting at 42nd St after making a point to head right through the heaviest crowds. Some claimed 18 minutes to get from the platform, up the escalators, south down the new concourse and up and out through the 42 St door of GCT. This apparently is competitive with a reverse subway ride from Penn or so they claim. But this completely ignores exiting perpendicular to the new station through one of the new entrance lobbies in the office buildings to get to their destinations. In reality you can make that trip in about 5-6 minutes depending on people traffic.
Some people will say anything. It’s always a trek to Penn Station. The river of people flowing is a real thing, but for a lot of people, it won’t be as neccassary or long. It’s a shame that it isn’t, but Penn Station isn’t in the heart of the commercial core. And as it currently stands, Grand Central is a better neighborhood. So for that family just coming in to see a Brioadway show, which would they prefer? For people who come in to work in the various connected skyscrapers like 270, who wouldn’t want to hop right from the station to the office?

I counted 30 Floors completed. At this rate, the building should top out this year.

Yeah, it's a shame how the 60s and 70s alone served to render midtown Manhattan a 'table-top town'. Pretty much the old twin towers of the WTC, Empire State, and maybe the Chrysler gave the skyline its character through this period. The 80s had more distinct designs, though some laughable like the Sony 'chippendale', and nothing really penetrating the flat dirge. The 60-story Chase Manhattan cereal box almost singlehandedly flattened the lower Manhattan skyline after 1960, too.
