Friday Puzzle #181 - 24hour Skyscraper

Somehow a "24" appeared inside the grid in each of my number placement puzzles at the most recent 24H Puzzle Championship. While internal givens are not typical for most Skyscraper puzzles, I loved the outside clues and solving path too much to add a different digit to the outside. So with your focus on the 2's and 4's, I hope you can enjoy this 40 point puzzle (medium-hard).

Rules: Enter a number from 1 to 7 into each cell so that, in each row and column, every number appears exactly once. Each number in the grid represents the height of a building and the clues on the outside of the grid indicate how many buildings can be "seen" when looking from that direction. Taller buildings block the view of smaller buildings. For example, if a row contained the numbers 15342, then two buildings are seen from the left - 1 and 5 - and three buildings from the right - 2, 4, and 5 - with the other buildings blocked by taller buildings in front of them.
