432 Park Avenue
2013 11 28
By Scott Onstott | Secrets in Plain Sight
432 Park Avenue is an new iconic structure rising at the corner of 56th Street in midtown Manhattan (thanks to Darrell for bringing it to my attention). When completed in 2015 it will be the tallest residential tower in the Western hemisphere and the second tallest building in New York City after the One World Trade Center (formerly known as the Freedom Tower).
Check out the view from 1271 feet.
The address is what initially interested me. 432 is a very significant number. 432 is part of a doubling sequence: 108, 216, 432, 864, 1728, 3456 wherein each term encodes secrets in plain sight.
432 Park has a very simple design based on “the purest geometric form: the square,” according to its architect Rafael Viñoly.
I noticed that each floor plate has an area of 8640 square feet. The tower has a total of 2016 windows with a total glazed area of 201,600 square feet.
In my book Taking Measure: Explorations in Number, Architecture, and Consciousness I explain how the material matrix in which we are embedded is based on the decimal system and why my qualitative numerological analyses discount the placeholder zero. Therefore, 432 Park’s floors and windows encode 864 and 216, the terms neighboring 432 in the doubling sequence.
The building height had me stumped for a while until I realized that 1398 feet = 864 x Phi. Phi is the golden ratio. See SIPS Volume 1 for how Phi is encoded in the Great Pyramid, the Washington Monument, and UN Headquarters which is visible from the windows of 432 Park incidentally.
The windows of 432 Park seem to underline the fundamental importance of the decimal system. Each of the 2016 windows is a 10 foot square having 100 square feet glazed area. Each side of the tower has 6 windows so looking around the penthouse you see 6, 6, 6, and 6 windows. The ceiling height is 12’6″, or 6′+6′+6″.
216 = 6x6x6.
Moon’s diameter = 2160 miles (99.9%).
Earth’s polar circumference = 21,600 nautical miles by definition.
Earth’s orbital velocity 66,660 miles/hour.
Earth’s precessional cycle is 6x6x6! or 25,920 years.
Arctic Circle to Equator = Pole to Tropics = 66.6 degrees (credit: William Neil).
The construction costs of 432 Park exceed $1.25 billion. The owner-developer Harry Macklowe expects to sell over $3 billion of condos in 432 Park. -Source The penthouse has already sold for $95 million. This ultraluxury tower is certainly for the one percent.

Artists ’have structurally different brains’
2014 04 17
Artists have structurally different brains compared with non-artists, a study has found.

The research, published in NeuroImage, suggests that an artist’s talent could be innate.
But training and environmental upbringing also play crucial roles in their ability, the authors report.
