When completed she will be the tallest tower in North America standing exactly 1776'! She is also on track to be one of the world's safest and most technologically advanced buildings with features that include column free floor plates and a redundant steel frame. She brings a tear to the eye and a jolt of prideful emotion simultaneously to this and many other gothamites, Americans and lovers of freedom throughout this beautiful world.

  •   truschool @abresler I did a hash tag search on (contractor) and you came up. I'm looking to network with business owners like yours. I'm a broker for Protect America Security. The company is running a huge promotion until this Friday the 16th on home security systems. If you could send any leads to me we could work something out for you to be compensated on each one. If its of interest lets exchange contact info and if not then thank you for your time. P.S. I'm also an event coordinator in Foxwoods Casino in CT and if that is of any interest to you we could do an event to display your work 8mon

abresler One more for my favorite Art Deco building in the world! #Chrysler_Building #393_Lexington_Avenue #Office #Building_Buddy @BLDGBUDDY #Architect #William_Van_Alen #Built #1930 #Size #1035287_sf #77_Stories #Developer #Chrysler_Automotive #Owner #Tishman_Speyer #Abu_Dhabi_Investment_Council #Ground_Lessor #Cooper_Union #Anchor_Tenant #Major_League_Baseball ; This #midtown #landmark is possibly the most iconic #skyscraper in #Gotham - for just over a year she was the tallest building in the world. This building who at one time had over 3000 construction workers on site contains 3,862 windows, 20,961 tons of structural steel, 391,881 rivets, and 3,826,000 bricks. She is truly an amazing work of functional art and one my favorite buildings! 9mon

In the mid part of the 21st century she was sold to my favorite corporate personality #Sam_Zell as part of his plan to expand $EOP into #NYC but soon after closing his company was bought in what was then the biggest LBO in history. The reskin went on as planned and now she is a nice addition to the beautiful Bryant Park westward skyline. 9mon
