A supertall New York skyscraper features in today's Dezeen Weekly newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter features the problematic 432 Park Avenue skyscraper in New York.

Residents of 432 Park Avenue in New York have reported "catastrophic" floods and getting trapped in the lifts.

Designed by Rafael Viñoly, the supertall skyscraper has experienced various engineering issues as a result of the recent windy weather.

Readers aren't surprised though, with one saying, "Time to come down to earth, people".
