YIMBY Scopes Views From One Vanderbilt’s Steel Crown in Midtown East

YIMBY recently went on a hard-hat tour of Kohn Pedersen Fox’s One Vanderbilt. The topped-out 1,401-foot supertall is currently the tallest skyscraper in Midtown East and the third tallest in the city by architectural height, when measured to the tip of the 100-foot-tall spire.
