The Steinway Tower  skyscraper , which has opened for residents, isn't just exceptionally tall, it is almost painfully thin...


More than a quarter of a mile high but no more than 60 ft wide.. is the worlds skinniest skyscraper... Each apartment covers one floor and has an all round  panoramic view..
It sits on an area dubbed Billionaires Row... Look north and you can see Central Park.. Looking South shows you the full length of the Manhattan skyline..
Wow!!  I don't think I could live in a building like this.. I would be worried to look out of the window..
Could you live there..?
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..

I feel dizzy just looking at the photo - I'd be scared of it falling over!

No, I would be very nervous of that.

I heard that these thin building are going up to exploit a loophole in the building regulations. Only partly heard it but they are pooling some rights or other of adjoining plots with less tall buildings which don't need or use those rights. Apparentlt there are others either in place or planned.

I remember going to the top floor some BT building or other in London iirc (not the Tower) which was only 30 floors high but I swear you could feel it moving.

It's good to moan.

Love the flats/apartments or what ever you like to call them but not the view. Not an ocean in sniffing distance and that's the kind of view that does it for me.
My pal in Thurso lives in a modest 2up 2down with a wee patch of garden, BUT, it looks out over Thurso Beach and I love to sit in her kitchen or in her garden with my coffee. In the winter when the Storms come it's a wonderful place to watch the wild waves, they come half way up her garden sometimes.

He does, he's a beach lover like me. The smell of the ocean stirs my soul. :smiley:

What an amazing place to live.  I like both city and seaside, but not forever :grin:
