It’s up, up, and away for the new residential skyscraper at 23 Park Row, which is now visible from the 9/11 Memorial.

The structure will soon rise 54 stories into the Lower Manhattan skyline, to a height of 702 feet. The lot sits in between 1 Beekman, aka “The Pearl on The Park,” which has now topped-off, and the 119-year old Park Row Building.
