57th Street Tower, from Columbus Circle

Photo by myself around Columbus Circle, at 59th Street and Central Park West.

One of a few very, very tall buildings is being built on 57th Street. This might be what's called 'The Columbus Circle Tower', or the 'Extell Tower', one of which is supposed to be 99 stories tall.

If you look closely, there is a dot on the right side, about halfway up. I took this photo because I could see the dot moving upwards. It must have been some mechanical equipment being hoisted up toward the roof, which could not fit into the elevator (!). Yipes. I'm sure there was scaffolding below!

Great to see some NY images again, there are not many blogs about NY!

I see that the building craziness also is on your side of the ocean. The cranes and scaffolds in Amsterdam are uncountable these days.

99 stories! That is amazing!
