To me this building is a nice one but in some view angles it hurt the iconic images of empire state and chrysler...those classic towers make nyc unique, like no other skyscrapercity

Anyway, no pain no gain, esb should not be the height limit for new buildings but how new good things interact with old good things is a very important question

Seriously...
Paris is not dying at all. Look at the amount of tourists who come there to appreciate the ancient monuments and the XIXth century Haussmann buildings.
Tell me if so many tourists come to NY to visit those supertalls.

Paris just decided to build its towers in the suburbs (La Défense) instead of the city center. And that was a good decision because the city has too many ancient buildings to be filled with skyscrapers.
If you lived in an old European city you would understand that we care with the appearance of our ancient cities. This may be a reason why there are so few skyscrapers in Europe.
And there have been projects to build taller than the Eiffel tower (tour sans fins). But it was cancelled because of economic reasons.

So much for 432 PA being "too tall". Imagine Steinway, Nordstrom and Co. in this shot ...
