An iconic Upper West Side hotel has a new neighbor. Construction is proceeding full steam ahead at 13-story-tall 207W79, and YIMBY stopped by the work site last week to see what’s what.

With the initially proposed front balconies nixed, the LPC, in 2014, approved the design under construction today.
