Although far from planned, yesterday I snapped three photos of the Manhattan skyline as seen from Queens, each one of them anchored by Rafael Viñoly's 432 Park Avenue nearing completion on 57th Street.
Here it is in the morning, seen from the Court Square 7 stop in Long Island City:
Here it is in the evening, seen from the Queensborough Plaza stop in Long Island City:
And here it is a few minutes later, seen from the Ditmars stop in Astoria (Time Warner is visible in the lower-right and One57 pops up near the center of the frame, below the cloud; ):
Many people are calling 432 Park Avenue a new compass for the middle of Manhattan, but it is also true for people, like me, who live in western Queens.
