Alright, that's it. Time to demolish some 60's and 70's boxes and let the NY skyline breathe again!

I've got several in mind to make examples of!

There was a really good book that I came across called "New York in the 1940s". It has B/W skyline shots of lower Manhattan and the Empire State Building. There is one amazing night shot that shows the whole of the financial district with virtually all the windows of American Int, 40 Wall St and 20 Exchange lit up.
