Skyscrapers in New York update

A year a go I made this blog post for Tableau Public Design Month, including a viz on the tallest buildings in New York.

Well over the last year a new very tall building has popped up in the city to take the number 2 spot away from the mighty Empire State Building and so I thought it was time for an update.

The new building is 432 Park Avenue, the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere. Its penthouse apartment is currently for sale listed at $95m.

432 Park Ave is part of a new craze for super skinny super tall luxury residential buildings in New York, many more of which are in the pipeline. I'm not really a fan of these new buildings, especially since many of the apartments will be bought and left empty. But whatever happens, I'll try to keep this viz up to date.


  1. can you do a skyline by puting longitude on collumns and hieght on rows?

  2. it kind of looks like it matches the skyline... there must be a picture from this angle somewhere :)

    1. I never thought of that, what a great idea! I can't find an exact matching picture but its definitely right. If you could make that into a polished viz I'd be happy to feature it on this site.

    2. Hi Peter, it was really the simplest thing and came from your idea, viz anda data, here's just a minute polishing, but feel free to rework on it, you'll do a better job than I surely. :)
