The dominance of the Empire State Building in Midtown is receding after nearly a hundred years.

About time.

New York was being left behind with it's infatuation with keeping the ESB as the 'big dog' in Manhattan.

The Empire State Building will continue to dominate the Midtown Skyline for a long time. It is further south than most other skyscrapers in Midtown, meaning it will remain easily visible from One World Trade Center. These towers are quite a distance from the ESB so they will be visible behind it, but not block its view, which is good. I think its good that they are building taller than the ESB but making sure that it is still easily visible in the skyline.

I think, they are building aesthetics around it. The ESB is a beauty. But it has had its time in the limelight. My opinion.

The cantilever is looking even crazier with more and more floors above it. Anyone know what the treatment will be on the underside? I don't recall seeing any renders looking up at it.

What's the biggest US city with a prewar or pre-'32 tallest structure? (at least within a c. 3.45-mile radius of city center, though maybe NY's the only city of import that actually has its tallest building that far from its biggest downtown. Of course it may depend on if you count spires, building antennas and non-buildings like chimneys)

You don't even have to go far from NYC - Newark is probably the answer, or at least a perfect example. There's a lot more cities which have a prewar as their second tallest.

From close enough south but from uptown, Jersey from the Lincoln Tunnel north, Queens and the GWB and Tappan Zee Bridge the ESB will be dominated. The further south of downtown you go (Staten Island Ferry, Staten Island, Monmouth County..) the closer to accurate size they'll be (which is about 1630 feet above sea level for the 225 W57 roof and 1500 for the ESB antenna tip)

Pictures like the two above reinforce my opinion that NYC actually needs a bit more of the glassy facades that many are starting to lament.
