The NEEDLE apartment building…………111 West 56 street

It truly is a sliver……….and what happens when the wind blows?

There is an 800 TON block of steel near the top.  It is suspended by cables…….

and when the wind blows…….it swings in the opposite direction……so…..the

building DOES NOT SWAY……..

Mind boggeling isn’t it!
