Everyone is entitled to like it, but for me, Manhattan is ruined by boxes. It can have all the styles it wants, but skyscrapers need to be slender and soaring, with setbacks and elegance. That's what really makes or rather made this place for me. Cityscape steadily ruined. Finally re-introduce the Zoning Resolution for setbacks!
There is no other building in the world as slender as 432 PA! And it really soars above everything else around it! Your statement is filled with contradiction!

I did a presentation today in a relatively high-floor conference room at 30 Rock - this was my backdrop....in a way, I'm actually kind of glad the weather was so crappy - otherwise I would have been VERY distracted.....:
