See How 432 Park Avenue Completely Dominates NYC's Skyline

View as Map

What's tall and white and seen all over? 432 Park Avenue, the city's (and the western hemisphere's) tallest residential building, which, when it tops out this fall, will measure in at an astounding 1,397 feet. The supertall tower will be the first in a coterie to breach a new height barrier in the city, and as such stands largely unsurpassed and agape for all to see—that is, until its neighbors catch up to it. We asked for your pictures of the staunch structure, and submissions ranged from points in Weehawken, NJ to Jamaica Bay and everywhere in between. Point is: this building is huge, it's noticeable, and it has already forever changed the New York City skyline. Oh, and if you think the views towards the building are bonkers, check out the views from the building, all the way from its cloud-grazing crown.
