Public Service Announcement: That Thing on 48th Street

The rising 42-story sliver building at 785 Eighth Avenue has been drawing a lot of attention lately as it sprouts upward. First there was the Rumbling, then the pictures dropped into the Curbed Photo Pool by aphrodite-in-nyc, and now another picture submitted by a reader who adds: "Not only has it gone up a little too quickly like everything else around here these days, where are the windows?" People of Eighth Avenue, architect Ismael Leyva is not here to hurt you. He's just here to freak you out with his giant scary concrete wall. As you were.
