Reaching for the Sky: Central Park South & Midtown Construction

These photos were taken in late November and December 2018, while I was walking south and west in Central Park. They don’t need much commentary except: AWESOME!

You think it can’t get any better than this one, don’t you? Hah! For scale: at the far right is the Time Warner Center, 750 feet high (55 stories).
Late afternoon light on these buildings is gorgeous.
The building just left of center with the mosaic look is 157 57th St., called One57, a 90-story residential tower.
There now: wasn’t that worth waiting for?

About Dianne L. Durante

I constantly seek out art that's inspiring, thought-provoking, skillfully executed, and/or beautiful so I can share it (in jargon-free language) with others who need and enjoy such art, but don't have time to search for it themselves. As an independent scholar, writer, and lecturer, I focus on art history and history, with forays into food, history, politics, and publishing. My most recent projects are three volumes on Alexander Hamilton, From Portraits to Puddles, Central Park: The Early Years, Innovators in Sculpture (a survey of 5,000 years of art in 2 hours), and videoguide apps by Guides Who Know.
